Loss and Grief: Sitting with a grieving client.

 

One of the biggest challenges for any therapist can be sitting with a heavily grieving client. There can be a strong impulse to try to help, to try to ‘’ímprove’’ or some way attempt to ‘fix’’ an unfixable situation. We live in a culture of ‘moving on’, which can isolate the grieving person even further, sometimes with catastrophic consequences.

 

Grieving, is a process. Whether it be the loss of a home, a marriage, the striking finality of death, or even an addiction, loss can be the most difficult emotion for a therapist to sit with. One of the main frustrations is around knowing whether or not we are being in anyway effective.
