Christian Counseling for Grief

The term ‘grief’ describes the emotional pain we feel in response to a personal loss and/or tragedy. There are many events in life that can trigger grief – the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or traumatic experience, to name a few. Though each person experiences grief differently, experts agree that most sufferers need strong support from others.

The term ‘grief’ describes the emotional pain we feel in response to a personal loss and/or tragedy. There are many events in life that can trigger grief – the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or traumatic experience, to name a few. Though each person experiences grief differently, experts agree that most sufferers need strong support from others. If you are struggling with grief, our compassionate counselors can help you process your emotions and learn effective coping skills.

Each of us copes with loss differently, and the way in which you process your grief will depend upon your personality and life circumstances, as well as the nature of the loss. The first step toward healing is to seek support—find someone with whom you can share your raw feelings without fear or discomfort. Talking to friends and family can be helpful, but a trained counselor will be able to use his or her expertise to guide you toward healing and recovery. Remember to take care of yourself and give yourself grace.

Persons who are grieving often feel torn between a desire to isolate themselves, and the need for supportive human relationships. Grief puts a strain on our relationships, but it is important for you to seek the company of trusted loved ones as you process your experience. People often simply don’t know how to help, so be clear about your needs and boundaries. You may wish to find a bereavement support group; these foster healing through solidarity, and a trained facilitator can help you work through the challenges of grief.
