Losing a loved one is never easy. Whether it’s a spouse, child, family member or close friend, it can take a toll on you emotionally and physically. Grief and loss counselling is one of the best ways to deal with such issues because they help you deal with all seven grief stages: denial/shock, pain/guilt, anger/bargaining, and depression. Their ultimate goal is to help you accept the situation, though you aren’t likely to be happy about it. Once you’ve accepted that they are gone, you can start planning for the future and moving forward with your life.
Grief and loss counselling focuses on you being you. You’re sad or angry, and you may wonder why they were taken so soon. These are all normal, but dwelling on them isn’t the answer. You won’t forget your loved one just because you live in the present or plan for the future. Counsellors know that there is no one-size-fits-all, so they let you go at your pace regardless of what that may be. Most people go through the seven stages differently, and they let you do that and talk you through each step as you get to it. Along with such, you may backslide and repeat steps before you can accept it and move forward.
From 2 to 3 focuses on couples who have had a life-changing event, such as getting pregnant or giving birth. However, the principal counsellor, Ginny, knows that other life-changing events are common during this time. If you have lost your spouse or another person close to you, it’s not feasible that you go through it alone. With her grief and loss counselling, you can go through all the grief stages in a safe and comfortable space. She can help you in your time of need so that you can focus on moving forward.
