The most difficult times that many of us are likely to ever face come after the loss of a loved one, through divorce or separation or even the loss of our dearest pets. While we all understand that death and loss is inevitable, until we face these traumatic life experiences, we tend to brush it off, deny the effects or deal in unhealthy ways. Eventually, these emotions rise to the surface and can manifest themselves in other ways such as creating job difficulties, sleep problems and strained relationships. At Couples Thrive, we understand how hard it can be to make sense of the loss.
Unlike some other forms of therapy where identifying what is causing you difficulties is an important focus for the first few sessions, loss and grief therapy is focused instead on expressing the feelings that you have because of your loss. As a form of therapy for individuals, grief therapy is a place where you can say the things that you don’t feel comfortable saying to those in your life. You might not feel safe talking to friends and family because you are worried that they will judge you or you might be worried about burdening those closest to you. Whatever the reason, here at Couples Thrive, we can give you the support that you need to work through loss and grief without fear of judgment. We understand that everyone confronts and deals with loss differently, and we will create a safe space that addresses your needs in a way that makes you feel heard and understood.
