Counseling

The loss of a loved one to suicide is a shocking loss. In the aftermath, those closest commonly experience powerful and sometimes conflicting emotions, including guilt, generalized anxiety, flashbacks, or other challenging issues.

The grief that follows suicide is often referred to as “traumatic grief.” If you are seeking in-person support, look for a mental health professional who is familiar with grief as well as trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. Many survivors report relief of PTSD symptoms following the use of specialized trauma treatments such as EFT Tapping or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.)

The Alliance of Hope offers specialized support for those who have been impacted by suicide loss.

Our phone, Skype, or Zoom Video consultations transcend time and distance, making expert help available to all. While we cannot change what happened, we can help you to answer questions, understand what you are experiencing, and locate resources to build a foundation for surviving and healing. Survivors consistently say that our consultations leave them feeling more hopeful and less alone.
