Whether you have lost a loved one or have to move on from a way of life, loss is unavoidable. Of course, that doesn’t make it any easier. Every loss is different, and grief is almost always difficult to manage. You might experience grief as a deep sadness or emotional pain, or you might have physical symptoms that create problems in your day-to-day life. Regardless of your exact circumstances, coping with your grief is necessary for your well-being. When you aren’t sure how to move forward, seek guidance from a grief therapist. Lockport patients can turn to Counseling Works in their time of need.
Grief therapy is counseling that focuses on processing, coping with and healing from grief. Grief is an emotion that happens after a significant loss, and it may disrupt a person’s life. Common causes of grief include the death of a loved one, a major breakup, losing a job and moving away from a familiar place.
In grief therapy, you will explore your emotions and find healthy ways to cope with your feelings. The moments after a loss are challenging, and so are the weeks to months beyond. If you are struggling, know that grief therapy can help you get back on your feet. Therapy is a space where you address your grief head-on. We help you actively take steps to protect your mental health as you come to accept the reality of the loss.
After experiencing a major loss, you may have conflicting emotions. For instance, maybe you feel like the pain is warranted and that you would feel guilty if you moved on. Or, you believe you should be able to manage your grief all on your own. If you feel this way, it’s a sign that you should talk to a therapist. You deserve to feel better and to heal from your grief. You can honor what you’ve lost while also acknowledging your own needs.
If any of the following sound familiar, it may be time to try counseling:
