Starting Grief & loss counseling

What type of counseling is needed when a person cannot get over the grief of losing a loved one?

Grief and loss counseling helps people grieve difficult losses including the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or the end of a relationship. It helps people navigate their grief process and eventually accept, understand, and move forward from their loss. Theriveworks grief therapists in Boca Raton, FL have specific experience, training, and skills that enable them to best support grieving individuals.

How does grief and loss counseling work?

Grief and loss counseling isn't one-size-fits-all, but it involves sharing about your loss and then working with your counselor to acknowledge and accept your new reality in its wake. Your Thriveworks provider at Thriveworks in Boca Raton, FL will design your treatment plan around your unique needs and goals for therapy, applying the counseling techniques that best support them.

Signs I should seek grief counseling

If you have recently experienced an event like the death of a loved one, a breakup or divorce, the loss of a job, or another major life change, then you may want to seek grief and loss counseling. Grief can be caused by many experiences and events, so if you feel that you are having trouble moving on from a certain event or find that it is still impacting your life and functioning, grief and loss counseling can help you process it more effectively so that you can move on and once again find fulfillment and satisfaction in your life.

What counseling theory is best for grief?

There are many counseling theories for treating grief, one of the most frequently used being the dual process model of grief which helps people acknowledge who or what they've lost through rumination while also adjusting to the new roles and identities that this loss has now placed on them. There are also many commonly used therapy approaches used in grief and loss counseling, including Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and traumatic grief therapy.

Is grief counseling conducted in person or online?

Grief & loss counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does grief counseling last?

For many, grief and loss counseling lasts for about 6 months. For others, it may last shorter or longer, depending on the severity of their loss and their grief.

Need more help deciding?

Have you ever lost a family member or friend? Have you ever been let go from a job that you loved and called home? Have you ever been forced to say goodbye to a much-loved pet? These are devastating losses. In each of these situations, you have to let go of an important part of your life. You’re also forced to endure difficult emotions like sadness, fear, confusion, even anger. It can feel like there’s nowhere to turn and as if happiness is far out of reach. Fortunately, though, you can find your way to happiness again and a professional can help you do so.

You don’t have to confront these emotions or work through the sadness, fear, confusion, and anger alone. Grief counselors specialize in helping people to grieve their losses. These counselors help their clients to understand and feel the emotions that come, cope with new changes, honor the loved one or thing lost, and ultimately work their way back to happiness.

“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.” –Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

What Are the Stages of Grief?

There are several stages of grief that explain many of the feelings and changes we experience after a heartbreaking loss. These include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. While these stages are not meant to represent a linear timeline of grief, they do help us to understand what healing looks like. Let’s take a closer look at these stages of grief:

  1. Denial: The “denial” stage is characterized by fear, avoidance, and confusion. The individual doesn’t want to accept the reality of their loss and does their best to avoid it.
  2. Anger: This stage is characterized by irritation and frustration. One might feel angry about the loss of their loved one and lash out at their loved ones.
  3. Bargaining: In this stage, an individual struggles with their loss and needs ample support from their loved ones.
  4. Depression: The “depression” stage is characterized by feelings of hopelessness. The individual sinks into a deep level of despair.
  5. Acceptance: In this final stage, one begins to accept the reality of their loss and move forward with their life.

Remember: These stages are not meant to illustrate a linear grief process. Instead, they help to demonstrate the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of individuals who are grappling with a devastating loss. If you find yourself struggling in any way after a loss, reach out for help. Losing a loved one is rarely easy, and you’ll need all of the support that you can get. The grief counselors at Thriveworks Boca Raton in Palm Beach, FL are happy to offer you their guidance and support.

Pamela really helped me through some difficult issues; she helped me to understand the people in my life and how to interact with them and understand why they are how to understand them. With that knowledge, I am better able to interact. It is very helpful to have someone I can share everything with. And Pamela is that person for me.

My husband and I sought counseling due to several significant issues in our marriage. We were distraught and on the verge of divorce. Jeannie's approach to marriage counseling led us through a process that changed my perspective on my husband's actual needs and his to my needs. We didn't hear what the other was truly saying! I would highly recommend Jeannie to work with any couple from minor issues to major issues in their marriage.
