Starting Grief counseling

What is Grief counseling?

Grief 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. Grief counselors have specific experience, training, and skills that enable them to best-support grieving individuals.

How does Grief counseling work?

Grief 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 grief counselor will design your treatment plan around your unique needs and goals for therapy, applying the counseling techniques that best support them. It may take place as individual-counseling or a form of group therapy such as Family therapy.

Is Grief counseling conducted in person or online?

Grief counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Grief counseling last?

For many, grief 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?

Jamie misses her father, whom she lost just a few months ago. His passing seems to have affected everything—she broke up with her boyfriend, stopped spending time with her family and friends, and even struggles to walk her dog.

Nothing feels right after losing her dad. She wants to reclaim just a sliver of normalcy, but it’s as though the world hasn’t stopped to let her catch her breath. That’s why Jamie’s considering grief counseling as a way to start making progress once more, a way to process her father’s death.

Perhaps you can relate to Jamie, even if the circumstances aren’t quite the same. grief counseling at Thriveworks Lubbock, TX is designed to help individuals from all walks of life to recover and reflect on their lives and mental health following a significant loss.

If you’re looking to partner together with an industry-leading provider who understands the effects of grief and loss, schedule your first session today. 

Do I Need Grief Therapy?

Attending grief counseling (or grief therapy, as it is sometimes called) is typically a choice you’ll make on your own. It might seem tempting to keep what you feel bottled in, and we get that. But working with a therapist has a lot of perks, maybe some that you’ve not even considered. 

When working with a mental health professional in grief counseling sessions, you’ll be able to tackle and work through some of the worst grief can throw at you, including: 

  • Anger
  • Depressive thoughts
  • Denial
  • Fatigue
  • Poor mood 
  • Low appetite 
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Social isolation and loneliness
  • And many other unique consequences of significant loss

If you’re feeling any of the above symptoms, it’s possible that you could really benefit from talking with someone via grief counseling at Thriveworks Lubbock, TX. Our professional counselors understand how grief works, and have the experience needed to help guide you toward healing and healthier coping skills. 

How Does Grief Therapy Work?

As mentioned before, you’ll attend sessions in-person (or through online therapy, if you’d rather) with your grief counselor. They may use one or more of the following counseling methods to treat your symptoms:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a therapeutic approach which assists clients in processing the impact of grief and/or a significant loss or life event. ACT can help you to realistically accept the source of your grief, and commit to making the changes needed (with a therapist’s help, of course!) to cope in a healthy manner. 
  • Family or Group Therapy is often an effective way for families, coworkers, friends, and other groups to collectively talk through the symptoms of grief and the shared impact of a significant loss. Family therapy and group therapy can work to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, and reinforce interpersonal connections. 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)  is one of the most popular forms of therapy, and can particularly effective at helping clients to identify depressive thoughts, triggers of anger, or even feelings of disbelief or denial during the grieving process. When CBT is used as a grief counseling treatment, it will help you to identify and change unconscious and unconscious thought patterns that can negatively influence your behavior and emotions. 

Advantages to Online Grief Counseling

The advantages of online therapy at Thriveworks Lubbock are a compelling reason to consider this virtual option over traditional sessions. You might want to consider online grief counseling if you’re: 

  • Frequently traveling
  • Often home watching kids or elderly relatives
  • Have health restrictions or mobility issues that make in-person sessions an inconvenience
  • In favor of meeting a counselor for grief counseling sessions from the comfort of your home
  • Are attending with other relatives or loved ones in different states 

Regardless of the reasons you might choose, online grief counseling is another safe, effective, and reliable method of recovery when it comes to treating the symptoms of grief and loss.
