Grief is often associated with feelings of yearning, sadness, regret, anger and guilt, among others. Some people may feel a sense of relief, while others can experience a sense of meaninglessness. Emotions are oftentimes surprising in their mildness or strength, and they may also be confusing, like when a person misses a heartbreaking relationship.
Grief therapy aims to help people cope with mourning and grief as a result of loss of loved ones, or with other major grief-triggering life changes. As a professional counselor, I believe that everyone expresses and experiences grief in their own way, which is often shaped by culture. It is common for grieved persons to withdraw from their family and friends and feel helpless; some might laugh. Some may be angry and wish to take action.
During grief, thoughts can vary from “it’s my fault” to “there’s nothing I can do about it”, or from “it wasn’t her time” to “she had a good life.” They can be soothing or troubling, and grieved people can bounce between various thoughts as they try to make sense of their loss.
Il n’y a pas de douleur comme le chagrin qui ne parle pas. – Henry Wadsworth.
(There is no grief like the grief that does not speak. – Henry Wadsworth)
Grief Counseling Made Easy…
My e-Counseling service is designed to help those who are grieving to swing back to their normal lives in the quickest time and most professional way possible. You only need to have an internet-enabled device to access my website for this and a host of other amazing counselling services that I offer. A complete line of counseling based on solution-focused consultations is available for grieving individuals, groups and families. My grief therapy will enhance your emotional, spiritual, and physical growth, and bring you relief. Professionals, athletes, and artists looking to reach their full potential and optimize their life experience can also benefit from e-counselling.
You will learn about different grieving behaviors that run from laughter to crying, and from engaging in silent activities, such as writing, exercising, or cleaning to sharing feelings. Some people prefer keeping their feelings to themselves, and others find comfort in other people’s company, particularly with those who might be similarly hit by the loss.
No one grieving way is better than the other. Some people are stoic and seek distraction from their thoughts others are more emotional and plummet into their feelings. While many complicated and difficult emotions are most often associated with the process of grieving, experiences of joy, humor, and contentment are not absent during this hard time.
When grieving the loss of a loved one, be it to the dissolution of a relationship or death, one of the many challenges associated with this, is trying to adjust to the new reality of having to live in their absence. Often, this usually requires creating a new routine, developing a new sense of identity, and even envisioning a new future. As a qualified counselor, my job is to help you with all these important elements that are needed to make you live a normal life again through the e-counselling service available on this website.
With the help of my professionalism in grief therapy, as well as support from close friends, you have everything you need to find the strength to start rebuilding your life.
