Grief Counseling Boca Raton FL at Morgan Center for Counseling & Wellbeing.
Almost everyone deals with grief when they suffer a significant loss, whether it is from a life change, a loss of emotional well-being, a change in physical wellbeing, the loss of a job, the loss of a pet, the loss of a relationship, or the loss of a loved one. Because we all deal with change and loss in different ways, the grieving process can be a lonely and isolating experience.
People will experience grief in a variety of manners. While some may feel a profound sense of sadness, others may feel angry, regret, relief, or guilty, to name a few.
Generally, most people will grieve in their own way and in their own time. Some people will seek grief counseling for help with the grieving process by a professional grief counselor. Some people will express these feelings at every opportunity, while many others may throw themselves into activities like work or almost stoic or unaffected. Some may even be able to experience humor or great joy during a time of great loss and sadness. Again, everyone experiences grief in their own way. And recovery from grief is a process.
Grieving behaviors and emotions can be very unsettling because the power and range of the emotions (whether mild or extreme) and can often be contrary to an individual’s hopes. Grieving can be confusing sometimes. For example, we still grieve the loss of an unhealthy relationship despite the fact that we know it needed to end for our lives to improve.
Why Attend Grief Counseling?
Attending grief counseling can help one move through the grieving process in a healthy way. A professional grief counselor can help:
- Shorten the Length of the Grieving Process
- Provide ideas to reduce physical discomfort you may be experiencing due to grief
- Provide coping tools for life and basic responsibilities
- Mechanisms for managing emotions
- Becoming aware of changes in appetite or sleep and how grief impacts these areas
- Process feelings of anger
- Process feelings of depression or anxiety
In most cases, grieving is a natural and time-limited process that can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few years depending on the situation and person. Many people suffering from significant grief will start to feel better and be able to resume everyday activities within six months (but you still might experience moments of sadness at times), while others might take longer to work through the issues impacting their life.
In some cases, grief or loss may take longer to resolve. Sometimes there are pre-existing issues like anxiety, depression, or a significant dependency on the person who passed may contribute to a seemingly continuous case of grief that required a professional Grief Counseling Boca Raton FL.
