Grief and Loss Counseling – Therapists and Coaches in Conway

The loss of a loved one is one of the most devastating events in life.

Whether you have lost your parent, spouse, child, sibling, friend, or pet, we would like to offer our condolences for your loss. Death is a guarantee in life, but it is never easy.  Even when it comes at the end of a long illness, it is still difficult to process the finality of the death.  For children, death can be even more difficult to understand.  There is no easy way to tell a child that their loved one, or even their pet, is not coming back.

There is no need to feel any embarrassment or shame in your sadness.  Even if you are having difficulty processing the death of a pet, grief can be overwhelming.  The stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.  There is no right or wrong way to move through these stages.  Everyone goes through the stages at different speeds and with different intensity.  However, getting stuck in one stage is also common.  A trained grief counselor can help you move through the stages of grief and end in acceptance.

Is this normal?

You may be seeking help for a loved one that is experiencing grief.  You may wonder if what they are going through is normal.  Signs that grief is becoming overwhelming may include:

  • Obsessing over the circumstances surrounding the death
  • Panic attacks and anxiety problems
  • Loss of interest in hobbies and friends
  • Anger issues
  • Avoiding any reminder of the deceased
  • Inability to control emotions, such as incessant crying
  • Sleeping all day, or alternatively, insomnia
  • Substance abuse issues

If you recognize these in your loved one, it is a wise idea to seek help.  Thriveworks grief counselors are experienced and trained professionals who are able to deal with a wide range of situations.  Our grief counselors are experts in their field; published in leading news outlets and academic journals.  We are ready to put our expertise to work for you.
