Grief and Loss Counseling
After losing a loved one, your entire perception of life changes. It may seem impossible to move on with life or find the next steps. It is important to work with a professional to work through this trauma. Call us today to take your first steps towards health and hope.
Loss may seem like a single issue, but it’s much more complicated than that. Not only is grief disorienting and disabling, often other issues and fears arise and take over. These negative thought patterns and feelings can compound over time if left untreated, creating severe depression, isolation, and anxiety. It often feels uncertain, as if you are lacking control following the loss of a loved one.
Seeking Grief Therapy
The longer and more significant the relationship was with the person you lost, or the more traumatic the loss, the less likely it is that you take action to recover, especially when it comes to bereavement. That is why it is so important to take hold of the life you are living and seek grief support. Beachwood’s Integrative Equine Therapy is a gentle approach that helps you move through the grief process. If someone you love is suffering from bereavement, you can help by encouraging them to seek the support of a loss counselor during this difficult time.
Our Approach To Grief Counseling
Integrative Equine Therapy (IET) is a deep interactive approach to grief therapy. Horses have an innate ability to break this grief cycle, not by having a client ride the horse or working in the stable, but by working alongside a trained equine therapist in emotionally connected sessions. In the Beachwood protocol, the horse/therapist combination leads a client to achieve a state of calmness and emotional relaxation from which they can replace their automatic negative reactions and shift their perspective to a more healthy relaxed response.
The results are transformative, healing, and nothing short of amazing. Let us help you, or someone you know who is trapped in this grief and loss cycle to restore a sense of peace and balance in their lives.
