Grief and Loss Counseling....Can it really help?
Are you gearing up for it? In the middle of it? See it in the mirror behind you but still feel crushed by it? This is loss. I once had a mentor who said "Everything in counseling is really only about grief and loss." That's a bold statement. But for the tough, painful issues of life, it fits. Illness, death, injury, assault or trauma, transitions like a job loss or a job starting, breakups and divorce, parenting, and caregiving...all can bring tough change and that crushing feeling of being knocked out by things we don't understand.
Grief hurts. Mourn hard. Seek help if you think you are having trouble coping. Don't beat yourself up for "not doing it right". Understand that you deserve a LOT of self-care right now until you can make meaning of what has, is or will be happening.
