The step to seeking support is never easy but I'm glad you're here. Wherever you are on your journey, I welcome you.
Grief and loss are a part of the human condition. Grief is typically considered to be brought on by the death of a loved one, but can also be triggered by any significant life-altering loss (such as a divorce or the loss of a job). Grief is a natural response to loss, but that doesn’t make it easy to deal with. Symptoms of grief may include sadness, loneliness, anger, denial, depression and a myriad of other thoughts and feelings. There is no “normal” amount of time for grief to pass, but if you find that your grief is not improving over time or that it is interfering with your everyday life, you may want to consider seeking professional help. A qualified grief counselor can help you to cope with the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s grief experts today.
Are you haunted by memories that keep you feeling trapped and confused? Perhaps you struggle to focus at school or work, losing time thinking about things you prefer to forget. Falling asleep is hard and sometimes when you do, the nightmares come. You may be feeling isolated and anxious, unsure who you can trust. Whether from a single incident trauma or a lifetime of traumatic events, you want to be freed from your past so that you can live your future with new hope and confidence.
