Grief and Loss Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Peachtree City
Grief is one of the most powerful human emotions. The loss of a loved one is a painful reality of human life. Although we all know that it is a certainty, we almost never really expect it. Even after a long illness, a doctor’s prognosis and your loved one’s health decline, their death is still often painful and distressing. Whether you have experienced the loss of a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend or even a pet, grief counseling can help you process the many emotions that you are experiencing.
A trained, professional Thriveworks counselor can help you walk through this journey of pain and healing.
There are many signs that would indicate that a person that has experienced a loss is in need of counseling. Some of these may include:
- Preoccupation with the circumstances surrounding the death
- Panic attacks; or overwhelming anxiety
- Lack of desire in daily activities
- Intense feelings of anger or resentment
- Avoiding any reminder of the deceased
- Inability to control emotions
- Depression or feelings of meaningless
- Onset of addiction or substance abuse
Not everyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one will go through these emotions, or will not have them as intensely. However, it can always be helpful to talk through your feelings and help create a new normal, without your loved one.
