Grief & Loss

Jennifer Cole, M.A., C.C.C.

Counselling Therapist - Canadian Certified Counsellor

# 205, 5001 - 49th Ave., Olds, AB

Sometimes we find it difficult to fully grieve the person we love so much - we don't want to let go, because to let go feels like we will lose them forever. Grieving allows us to move back into life fully. We never forget we just come into a place of knowing the fullness of love in that relationship so that we can live life again and love again

Grief and loss are unique to the individual and can take many forms. What one person may consider a relatively minor loss, may cause another to experience considerable difficulty. Many children are told "not to be a baby" or to "keep a stiff upper lip", and find themselves having to work through unresolved grieve many years later. Such methods as EMDR, CPT, or simply empathic listening can help resolve grief issues.

Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, we can help you cope and begin to work through the pain, and in time, assist you with moving forward.

Clients can expect a client centered, supportive and informative understanding of what to expect regarding grief and loss issues as well as how to work through these issues through hands-on therapeutic techniques. I currently use some emotionally focused therapy techniques as well as models from three different grief cycles for grief issues which can include anything from death and loss of a loved one to giving up substances or breakup of a relationship.

During such a difficult time in ones life it can be helpful to discuss the large range of emotions one may be feeling during a time of grief and loss. Working collaboratively with the client, open discussions of thoughts and feelings in a safe environment can help to normalize the grieving process and allow the client(s) to begin to move forward with their journey.

Experiencing the pain from a profound loss or illness may feel very overwhelming. Grief can be a very lonely and isolating process and it may be difficult to know where to turn. It creates symptoms and strong emotions that affect individual and family functioning, and confusion about the meaning of life. I provide a safe, confidential, and understanding environment in order to support you through a journey from pain towards relief. I have a Master of Science in Grief Counselling and Thanatology and have almost 15 years of experience in Hospice Care, Grief Counselling, and Complicated Grief Reactions. My own personal experience with loss strengthens my intuitive ability to assist you.

Grief & Loss

Megan MacIntyre, M.A.

Certified Professional Counsellor

Suite 200, 5015 50 Street, Sylvan Lake, AB

The Kubler-Ross model, 5 stages of grief is well known; less familiar to people is where they are in the process. When it comes to grief, I am quick to state that is different from other types of counselling. I describe grief as a natural process, as opposed to a corrective process. But there may be traumatic elements to a grief or loss that require special attention. I look for those elements; essentially to clean the wound and uncomplicate the healing process. The truth is when we grieve, we feel the other side of love and it can be more painful than imagined. This is a loss that is to be honored, and needs support not corrections.
