Grief & Loss Counseling

Grief & Loss Counseling

Losing a loved one is a difficult thing for nearly everyone to experience.

For some people, however, losing a loved one can be extremely traumatic, especially if the death is the result of non-natural causes. For example, losing a child, partner, or a young parent is often more traumatic than is losing a grandparent. In other cases, a serious illness, divorce, or another traumatic event can trigger feelings of grief and loss. For some people, coping with grief and loss can feel impossible, limiting, and even disabling, preventing them from interacting with others and the world in a normal and healthy way. If you are experiencing serious amounts of grief and loss counseling, our grief and loss counseling services in Illinois can help. Reach us today to learn more about our services and what we can do for you.

Grief & Loss Counseling – What to Expect

Making the decision to participate in grief and loss counseling can feel overwhelming at first, as well as intimidating. In fact, many people deny that they even need grief and loss counseling, believing that they are either perfectly fine or holding onto the idea that to move on from grief would be a betrayal to the deceased. Working with a therapist can help. Some things to expect during the grief and loss counseling process include:

  • Identifying and understanding the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance);
  • Identifying mourning tasks and goals (i.e., accept the reality of the loss, adjust to life without the deceased, etc.);
  • Identifying emotions, thinking patterns, and unhealthy behaviors;
  • Learning how to adapt to life without the deceased, manage new changes to one’s routine, connect with others, etc.; 
  • Regaining one’s sense of identity in light of the death/change/traumatic event; and
  • Learning how to honor one’s feelings and relationship with the past while moving forward with the future.
