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 Rock Hill, 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 Rock Hill, 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?

The loss of someone or something can be devastating.  It’s estimated that an average of 2.5 million people die annually.  Each passing leaves as many as five grieving people behind.  Approximately 1.5 million children in America have lost one or both of their biological parents.  Whether it’s the death of a loved one or the loss of something else, such as a career, a home, or a dream, anyone can experience grief.

Our careers are much more than just the way we earn an income. Our jobs often define how we view ourselves – and how others see us.  The loss of a job can create stress, self-esteem issues, depression, and (of course) grief.  Grief associated from job loss can extend into the next job, too.

Friends and family try to be helpful.  They mean well.  They say things like, “You’ll get over this,” “You’re just going through a rough patch,” or “Time heals all wounds.”

– But what if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?

What Is Grief?

Grief is a natural response to a loss.  It’s important to recognize that “loss” can’t be isolated to a category or type of event.  Loss is experienced differently from person-to-person.  How we handle it, the time needed to work through it, and the type of support needed varies.

Grief can be powerful, leaving people feeling like they’re on an emotional roller coaster.  And although they’d like to exit the ride, they just can’t seem to make it stop long enough to get off.  Many people report feeling like they’re trapped in a vicious cycle, one they don’t know how to break, with seemingly no light at the end of the tunnel.  At times like these, the support of a trusted friend, loved one, or grief counselor can someone who’s dealing with grief or loss find hope.  (803) 368-6499.

How Does Grief Counseling Work?

In the same way that everyone experiences grief differently, people also heal from grief differently.  For some, the process is relatively brief. For others, it takes time to work through their grief.  Grief therapy is a process of recovering from a loss.  This recovery may have many sensitive pieces to sort through.  A licensed grief therapist can help you understand this new normal in your life help you work toward a higher level of understanding and acceptance.

Do I Need a Grief Counselor?

Many people have benefited from working with a Grief Counselor.  You may find that grief therapy can help you get back to living life after a death, tragedy, or loss of any kind.  You may benefit from grief counseling if you experience any of the following issues:
