Grief and Loss

Effective grief counseling provides therapy to deal with trauma of loss

Grief counseling has evolved to acknowledge grief as a personal experience influenced by culture, gender, and spirituality. It’s not just about the death of a family member, but encompasses various forms of loss. The process can lead to transformation and growth, with some individuals showing resilience. A significant shift is the emphasis on maintaining bonds with the deceased, which can provide comfort and ease grief. Memories of the deceased are crucial, and the goal of therapy is not to erase these memories, but to help individuals find solace in them as they navigate through their grief.
