Few things in life can feel as lonely and as isolating as grief. Feelings like sadness, anger, confusion, depression, ambivalence, exhaustion, regret, guilt, and relief all hang thick in the therapy room as clients share memories of their deceased loved ones. Although their stories may vary, two common threads often emerge: hope and resilience.
In the Confesssions from the Couch: Finding Hope and Resilience in Grief mini e-book, grief therapist Jenni Brennan explores 9 of the most common experiences faced by those who are grieving. Confessions From the Couch will leave you feeling seen and validated, all while providing you with a deeper understanding of the grieving process.
