What Is Grief Counseling? 

What is grief counseling? Grief counseling is a type of therapy that aims to help individuals cope with the loss of a loved one. It supports and guides those experiencing intense emotions and struggling to navigate the grieving process. 

Grief counseling can vary in its approach but generally involves talking through feelings, memories, and thoughts related to the loss. It may also include learning coping strategies and techniques to manage overwhelming emotions.
