Grief affects people in diverse manners. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to grieving. Grieving people may seek care from peers and relatives, support networks, or a qualified counsellor.
Many specialists believe that tele-therapy is just as successful as face-to-face psychotherapy. Because of its reduced cost, easier accessibility, and wider availability, online bereavement therapy may be very beneficial.
It’s natural to have a strong emotional reaction when you lose someone or something dear. A person may feel a variety of emotions, such as shock or numbness.
If deep grief is interfering with a person’s daily life, counselling, such as online grief counselling, may be beneficial.
“Because of its accessibility, privacy, and availability, online grief therapy may be extremely beneficial.”
Online Grief Counselling
Grief counselling delivered via the internet is known as online grief counselling. Tele-mental healthcare, according to Langarizadeh et.al. research, is comparable to in-person services. It might also have the advantage of being less expensive and more accessible.
Grief counselling, according to the American Psychological Association (APA), is the “offering of advice, knowledge, as well as psychosocial help” to assist people in regaining their capacity to function after a loss.
Reason for Seeking Online Grief Counselling
The reason for obtaining online grief counselling is to cope with the loss of a loved one. Because of its accessibility, privacy, and availability, online grief therapy may be extremely beneficial. Internet-based solutions may also provide more flexibility and speed when contrasted to face-to-face counselling.
Types of Online Grief Counselling
There are numerous types of online grief therapy available, and a person may select one or more based on their specific requirements. The types accessible will be examined in greater depth in the sections that follow.
Session Through a Video Call
Counselling via video or telephone conversations is one alternative. People can use these alternatives to obtain services that they might not be able to get otherwise, such as owing to location or time constraints. According to the American Psychological Association, telemental health is similar to face-to-face care in various contexts and is a viable alternative.
Apps for Counselling or Instant Message
People can interact with a psychotherapist online or via text using mobile apps. Asynchronous massage therapy, according to Reynolds et al., can be just as beneficial as in-person treatment. As a result, apps can be useful tools for people who don’t wish to express themselves verbally.
Groups that Provide Assistance
People can join online support meetings in the same way they can join in-person support groups. Because it is done online, it may be done with people in your immediate region or people all over the world. It can be beneficial for an individual to be near others who are experiencing similar things in group sessions. This can convince them that they are not the only ones, assist them in working through their sorrow, and also make them learn that everyone grieves differently (Newsom et al.).
There is also a slew of internet grief support networks to choose from. Many of these discussion boards are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
How to Make a Decision
An individual should think about how they would like to get help, whether it’s through live chats, online forums, applications, as well as webinars. They may also choose to meet with a therapist in person. They must also make certain that any bereavement therapy they obtain is provided by a professional who is accredited by a professional authority.
Bereavement counselling can be provided by priests, social services, medics, or marital and children counsellors who have undergone additional training in helping individuals cope with loss.
Security and Expenses
The costs of various types of online grief therapy vary. Some, like forums, could be exempt for use, while others may be supported by donations. Others, like video conversations, are usually less expensive than conventional types of therapy and therefore could be more cost-efficient as well.
Some insurance policies may include online or app-based psychotherapy, however, individuals should verify with their insurance company. Grief therapy may be available through several Employee Assistance Programs. Sliding scale counsellors, learning clinics, and trainees are all possibilities.
What Can Internet Grief Counselling Do for You?
Individuals who are having problems functioning or mourning after a tragedy are typically referred to a health practitioner for grief therapy. Psychotherapy may be beneficial if a person’s grief is:
- meddling with their normal routines
- causing complications in relationships
- making it difficult for them to carry on with their own lives
- resulting in extreme shame or depression
Sadness therapy seeks to help an individual cope with the sorrow or emotion of grief by teaching them skills and tactics. This may entail talking to a therapist or joining a support group about one’s experiences and emotions to find ways to go through the grieving period.
Grief therapy may help individuals overcome the negative consequences of grief, including food disorders, self-destructive behaviours, and disturbed sleep.
