Grief and Loss are part of life but they are also the hardest emotions to handle because it leads to a sense of powerless. When not facing it, the sense of powerless and losing control might lead to depression. My approach to the work with clients experiencing with grief and loss is to carefully examine their experiences with the people or the situation that leads to the grief and loss. We will grief the loss but also find the positive experiences that will stay with you no matter that person or the situation continues in your life or not. By finding the continuity of the positive experience, we will find the strength to continue the next chapter of your life together.
