Grief and Loss Therapy

Grief and Loss Therapy, Solasta Counselling and Psychological Services, Calgary

Grief therapy, also known as bereavement counselling, is a specialized form of therapy aimed at helping individuals cope with the emotional and psychological impact of loss. Our psychologists in Calgary specialize in providing compassionate and effective grief therapy to support individuals as they navigate through the grieving process.

Grief is a natural response to loss, whether it's the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or a significant life change. It encompasses a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, and confusion. Grief can also manifest physically, affecting sleep, appetite, and energy levels.

Key Components of Grief Therapy:

  • Validation and Empathy: In grief therapy, clients receive validation and empathy for their feelings and experiences. We create a safe and supportive space for clients to express their emotions and process their loss without judgment.

  • Exploration of Emotions: Grief therapy involves exploring and processing the wide range of emotions associated with loss. Clients learn to identify and express their feelings in healthy ways, allowing them to release pent-up emotions and find relief.

  • Coping Strategies: We can help clients learn coping strategies to manage the intense emotions and physical symptoms of grief. Techniques such as relaxation exercises, mindfulness, and self-care practices can help clients navigate through difficult moments and find moments of peace and comfort.

  • Meaning-Making: Grief therapy often involves helping clients make sense of their loss and find meaning in their experience. Clients explore questions of identity, purpose, and spirituality, allowing them to find solace and understanding in their grief journey.
