Grief and Loss Counseling in Birmingham, MI—Detroit Therapy

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.
