I have worked with many clients who have grappled with grief and loss, and my primary approach with this issue is to nurture a sense of safety in my clients during session so that they can connect with the creative intelligence within them that knows how to process loss in a healthy manner. I teach clients about "clean pain" vs "dirty pain" so that they can navigate through the grieving process without becoming entangled in the storytelling tendency of the mind that tends to prolong suffering.
