Whenever we experience the death of a loved one, family or friend, our journey through grief may, at times, be a difficult road to travel alone. To offer support, the Celebration Hope Center offers individual grief counseling or opportunities for grief group participation. Please send a message through our website or call the Hope Center with your name, email address, contact number and whether you would like information about a grief group or would like to request individual grief counseling. Someone will contact you with information regarding our next group or to schedule an initial individual session.
We host a 12-session weekly group once yearly, generally starting in the Spring and led by one of our Hope Center counselors. The group is for adults who are grieving the death of a family member or friend. The loss may be recently or at a time in the past. Each weekly two-hour session covers a different grief topic and includes a video presentation with a time for discussion of the weekly exercises and the session’s video content. Group participation includes some homework, and it is expected that group members will complete these short exercises. There is a one-time fee for all sessions and materials.
Other grief group opportunities may also be offered at additional times during the year.
A helpful article to offer support for those grieving the loss of a loved one
J. Lee Grady is a Christian author and blogger who published a blog titled, 8 Ways to Grieve the Loss of a Loved One. Grady writes, “I’ve read many books and articles about grief and talked to pastors and counselors. But everyone’s journey with grief is different, depending on the circumstances of death and our own unique personalities. However, I’ve created some guidelines to help me grieve. I hope it will help you or someone you know who is going through a painful loss.”
