Grief counseling is a form of psychotherapy that assists people in coping with grief and mourning to address personal loss in a healthy manner. Grief is a saddened reaction to any type of loss. The different feelings, thoughts and behaviors people express while grieving can be mild to severe. Normally people recover from grief within six months time and resume normal activities. However, sometimes they grieve for years without seeming to improve. That is when we require a therapist to overcome our grief. Normally a psychologist is the best person we should visit for such counseling. However, clergies, counselors and social workers also prove to be helpful. Grief counselors believe that everyone expresses grief in his own way. The purpose of grief counselors is to help individuals cope up with the feelings, thoughts and memories associated with the loss or bereavement. They help the individuals cope with the pain or loss and explain that it is normal to feel grieved but it is also equally important to come out of it. The therapy includes providing information about the normal grieving process. The symptoms and change experienced at this time are temporary reaction to loss. The grieving person may be overwhelmed or numb with grief. The counselor slowly nudges the person back to normal life. This often requires accepting the loss as reality. The grief counselor may help the person identify ways to let go. They also enable the person to slowly bridge the loss with positive memories of the deceased.
