Dealing with Loss and Grief
WHEN COUNSELLING CAN HELP
The feelings of sadness that accompany the losses we experience in life are natural and healthy. The expression of our sadness helps us to heal.
Sometimes, the healing process gets blocked and professional help may be needed. The following list may be helpful in deciding if professional advice may be helpful or necessary:
- When you are unable, or are becoming unable, to function effectively at home, work or socially.
- You have questions about what is normal and you may have concerns like “am I crazy?”
- You have thoughts and feelings that you are not able to share with loved ones.
The grief process triggers big emotional issues, perhaps from the past, that you feel as though you need help to deal with.
If you feel that you may be having difficulty with a grief related issue then please consider contacting C-BERS and one of our counsellors will be able to assist you.
