What is grief?

Grief is the emotion you feel when you lose someone or something that means a great deal to you. Most people associate grief with bereavement — the death of a family member, friend, or beloved pet. Grief can also affect you for many other reasons, from losing a job you love to suffering from a severe illness or injury.

  • Denial: When one hears the news that triggers their grief, they often find it hard or impossible to accept. One might be sure there has been a mistake, for example, that it is a person with the same name who has died, or the hospital test results confirming they have cancer are wrong. 
  • Anger: When one realizes that their worst fear is true and faces the reality of loss, anger often takes over. It’s common for people to shout or scream, look for someone to blame, and lose their temper very quickly. 
  • Bargaining: Bargaining is the phase of grief where one prays to their god or begs some higher power to undo what has happened. People often promise they will do anything, including sacrificing their own life, hoping they can reverse the tragedy. 
  • Depression: Depression causes feelings of overwhelming sadness and despair. It develops when one knows they cannot do anything to change what has happened. It is often the most persistent and challenging phase of grief.
  • Acceptance: With the proper support, one can process their grief and reach acceptance. This is where one begins recovering from their loss and living a more rewarding life again. Everyone’s experience is unique, but most experience these five stages of grief. One might go through them in a different order, or some may be very brief while others last for months or years. Some people get stuck in one phase, like depression, and struggle to move on.

How does grief counseling help?

Rappore’s compassionate therapists provide essential support to people struggling with grief. After completing the Rappore Mental Health Fingerprint® questionnaire, our therapists employ modalities like acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help understand one’s feelings, express them safely, and challenge flawed thinking patterns. Addressing feelings of anger and depression may also be part of the treatment.
