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 Mt Pleasant, SC 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 Mt Pleasant, SC 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?

Death brings about the strongest and most profound emotions we can have in our lifetime. But these feelings do not need to bring on despair or a feeling of hopelessness. When a beloved family member, friend or a pet dies, the feelings we have can be overwhelming and sometimes last a long time. The grieving process can begin before a loss, and it can endure long afterward.  If you are suffering through the loss of a loved one, the professionals at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling can help you ease the pain. Counseling can help you through this most difficult time, providing you with solace and the tools you need to help you recover from the loss you have suffered.

How Grief and Loss Counseling Can Help

When we suffer a loss, we are likely to wonder if our feelings are normal and how long they will last. A number of questions can arise. The therapists at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling can help you navigate these difficult questions and support you through your bereavement. If you are asking yourself any of these questions, loss therapy is a good step to take.

  • How could this happen? Why has this happened? I feel mad at the world.
  • How long does grief last? When will I feel OK again?
  • I regret not having spent more time or caring for my loved one. How do I overcome this regret?
  • I lost my loved one suddenly and unexpectedly, and I wasn’t able to emotionally or mentally prepare. How do I deal with the grief that has blindsided me?
  • Sometimes the sadness I feel is unbearable. How do I start to feel better?
  • I’m worried I’m going to lose others who are close to me. How do I cope with this fear?
  • Is it OK to sometimes temporarily forget about the loss? How do I deal with the guilt I feel when this happens?
  • I feel like I have nothing to talk about except my loss. How do I change this?
  • What do I say to people who ask if there’s anything they can do for me?

If you would like to talk to a therapist about any of these topics or others that you’re trying to work through, call us at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling to schedule your appointment. Our phone number is 843-606-6223.

There are several ways to cope with loss while staying healthy and processing very strong emotions.

  • Be good to yourself: Be sure to get enough sleep, eat well and take short walks. These things help you feel normal during a very difficult and unfamiliar time
  • Talk about it: Seek help from a professional therapist who is trained in grief counseling and who can help you work through difficult emotions in a healthy way

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.
