Grief Recovery Coaching
Everyone experiences loss and grief differently. There is no standard or right or wrong way to grieve. Grief and bereavement are normal and natural parts of life. It is not your fault if you are experiencing grief and bereavement. You can rise above grief by seeking reliable grief coaching services. Haleh Coaching provides exceptional grief coaching services to help you pass through this dark stage in your life.
During your bereavement and throughout the grief process, you require immense emotional support. Seeking support plays a crucial role in your recovery and acceptance of the loss. Your friends, family members, support groups, and grief recovery coaches can help. You must travel through the entire grief process. You should not be rushed through the grief process; instead, you should move through it at your own pace. Sometimes, the grief period could extend over a long period, especially if you were very close to the deceased person. Some people could even experience what we call complicated grief.
Normal and Complicated Grief
Sometimes, complicated grief starts when your loved one is still alive, especially if you are the primary caregiver to someone suffering from a terminal illness. While taking care of a sick person, you could develop complicated grief even before their death, especially if the future seems bleak. If you or a loved one portrays the outlined signs of complicated grief, contact Haleh Coaching for personalized grief recovery coaching.
Grief falls under two main categories: normal and complicated grief. Complicated grief, also known as unresolved grief, goes on for an extended period without any improvement or progress. You could be experiencing complicated grief if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Emotional numbness over the loss of a loved one or continued disbelief that your loved one died
- Feeling preoccupied with the deceased person or how they died
- Inability to accept the loss of your loved one
- Emotional pain or intense sorrow, including anger and bitterness
- Blaming yourself for your loved one’s death
- Unable to enjoy the beautiful memories about your loved one
- A continuous longing or yearning for the deceased
- Continually avoiding things or situations that could remind you about your loved one
- A hard time planning for the future or pursuing your interests after the death of your loved one
- Feeling like life is empty and meaningless without your loved one
- Loss of purposes or identity, and feeling like part of you died with your loved one
Why Seek Professional Help
People struggling with grief, especially complicated grief, are at a higher risk of suffering emotional illness or even committing suicide. Ideally, a grieving person should be able to work their way through the grieving process. With time, they should make sense of loss and accept it, learning to adjust to life without the physical presence of their loved ones.
A professional grief recovery coach will help you cope with the loss by teaching you to let yourself feel the pain, be patient with the process, acknowledge your feelings, and try to lead a normal lifestyle. Our grief recovery coaching has been shown to reduce the level of distress that mourners go through after losing their loved ones.
