Seek help from a counsellor or coach when you are going through a difficult time..
Don’t be afraid to ask for help during difficult times
Taking advantage of a counsellor in a time of grief, is far from being a sign of weakness. In fact, it shows strength. Bereavement Counselling is a specialised type of counselling which is designed to support those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Counselling sessions help them to work through their grief and deal with it, rather than trying to cover up feelings and emotions. It can also give them the tools and mechanisms to cope when they are alone. This type of counselling is recommended for any age group especially where the life of the one who is suffering the loss, is being adversely affected by grief.
How counselling helped me to grieve for my parents
It is vital that the reason for grief is understood. Grief is often thought of or described as a type of very heavy sadness; this is not entirely true. It can involve a process of going through many different emotions and reactions starting with shock and numbness as the mind goes into overdrive trying to process what has happened. Following on from this comes, anger, sadness and anxiety. It can take days, weeks months or even years for someone to go through this cycle of feelings and it is normal to experience one host of emotions for the loss of one person and a completely different set with a different loss. There is no “normal” set rules to the grief process and it is important to recognise that if the emotional response is affecting a person’s day to day life in terms of education, employment or relationships with others, then it might be time to consult a counsellor.
