Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Research shows supportive counselling is one of the best ways to recover from grief and loss. Sharing time with someone trained to unlock your natural strengths can give you the boost you need to regain balance. I respect people's own sense of timing and healing, creating an oasis of caring in which to recover. I help people find their own unique path through loss to discover how the world can be OK again. I use evidence-based techniques to help those experiencing all kinds of losses (family member, pet, career, illness, losses due to abuse/assault). I have gently walked alongside many people recovering, and have very encouraging information and approaches to share.

Amy Mackenzie's therapeutic approach to grief and loss includes opportunities to express overwhelming emotions through images with art materials in the presence of a supportive and empathic therapist. Clients may wish to create images, small sculptures or dolls to symbolize the subject of loss in order to both celebrate and remember the important bond as well as to express unresolved feelings, with the aim of integration

I have a depth of knowledge and I respond to grief and loss in a broad and holistic way (not just death & dying but other kinds of losses too). I have worked with all ages, with individuals as well as groups. I respond with compassion and demonstrate understanding about the multilayers of the grieving experience. Much of my work then involves helping people with mourning & I attend to context, situation and related cultural perspectives. I borrow from Wolfelt (1996) the concept of "Companioning" vs. "Treating". New research shows that grieving people (children, youth and adults) are also resilient, & we work with this idea. Sometimes “words are not enough” & Art Therapy also benefits.

Grief and loss are experienced differently for each person - so therapy must be individualized and tweaked just for you and your situation. It is a process not an event and so we go over your story together and look for those events and perceptions that are uniquely significant to you. That tells us where to start, and what to expect. There is no "normal" when it comes to grief and loss, but you can get back to feeling normal for you.
