Grief is a powerful emotion. It is one of the major life stressors; one that many people need help dealing with, possibly long after the death has occurred. Grief counseling is a form of therapy or mental health counseling that helps a person deal with their emotions and thoughts after the loss of a loved one. This is also sometimes known as bereavement counseling.

Even if a loss is expected, perhaps after a long illness, the death of a loved one causes a flood of emotions. Although we all know that death is a natural part of life, it is also one of the most painful. Sometimes, it is possible to process these emotions and feelings on your own. For others, the death of a loved one is too much to bear.

Signs that grief is becoming overwhelming may include:

  • Replaying the days before the death obsessively
  • Cumbersome anxiety and possibly panic attacks
  • Disconnection from previous activities and hobbies
  • Struggles with anger
  • Avoidance of any remembrance of the deceased
  • Constant crying, or inability to stop crying
  • Sleeping too much or insomnia
  • Onset or exacerbation of addictions

Even if you are not experiencing emotions as extreme as these, you may just be having a hard time functioning in daily life. At Thriveworks, we understand that things may never return to “normal.” If you’re searching for grief counseling and therapy in the Detroit area, reach out to Thriveworks Birmingham.
