Grief is an exceptionally strong emotion, frequently accompanied by feelings of anger, guilt and remorse. It’s a natural reaction to loss, whether it’s the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet, job, home, etc.
At first, the intense emotional and physical pain of grief can be overwhelming and seemingly uncontrollable. People’s responses to loss are partially dependent on their relationship with the lost person or thing but, it’s a very individual experience, everyone experiences and reacts to grief in different ways.
Coping with Grief
There is no one right way to grieve. Your experience of grief, including its length and intensity, will be unique.
To begin the process of working through grief, you must first acknowledge it. When asking people for assistance through this difficult time, you need to be assertive and articulate your needs.
At Stewart & Associates we offer loss counselling to assist you through grief and help you move towards acceptance.
