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 Colorado Springs, CO 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 Colorado Springs, CO 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?

Since you are searching for help, it most likely means that you or someone you know is dealing with the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, relationship, health or even the loss of a dream you once had. It is difficult to process a loss, especially when it’s someone you love. We would like to offer condolences for your loss. Grief is one of the most painful and strong emotions, always difficult to process, especially doing it alone.

Grief counseling, also known as bereavement counseling, helps a person or family deal with loss. Whether the loss is a spouse, child, sibling, grandmother or family pet, Colorado Springs Thriveworks counselors are experienced and willing to process the loss with you. Sometimes, a loss may not be a death. It could be the loss of health or physical function, loss of a dream or a loss of a home. Whatever the loss, the professional counselors at Thriveworks will help you to understand your emotions and make you way through the stages of grief in a healthy and positive way. Moving through these stages is a unique process for everyone; moving at different speeds and intensities. Each stage in grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance, will be discovered at each person’s own pace.

Being Stuck

People working through grief will sometimes get stuck in a stage, before acceptance. For example, if a person is stuck in the denial stage, they may not accept that the person or loss is really gone. Avoiding the reality of a loss is one way to become stuck, unable to move toward acceptance. A person that is stuck in the stage of anger, may drive others they love away, creating more loss.

Don’t do it on your own; let us partner with you

The grief counselors at Thriveworks Colorado Springs are leaders in their field, professional and equipped to work with all types of loss. When you or someone you care for are ready for help, we are ready too. Making the first call is difficult, so we want to be responsive and available when you are ready.

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
