Support is very important in helping move through grief and loss. Talking about your loss can help ease your pain and process the many complex feelings you may be experiencing. More than anything, it is important to know you are not alone.
Understand your grief
Better understand how your loss impacted your life. Do you feel stuck in depression, anger or anxiety? Are you having difficulty resuming your life or functioning following your loss? Maybe you aren’t sleeping well or are using drugs or alcohol to cope with the pain. Or maybe you simple feel lost. These are all common experiences stemming from grief and loss, in a therapy session you will have time to better understand exactly how your loss is impacting you.
Talk about it
I’m often asked the question, “how can talking about my loss help when I just want to move on?” When you feel ready, talking can help you get in touch with your grief and allow you to make sense of it. Keeping feelings buried can cause grief to linger and ultimately hurt more.
