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.

Its normal to grieve after suffering a loss. Most often people don't need professional help but just need time to recover. But sometimes people get stuck and can't seem to get back on track. Sometimes they need help to express feelings they don't feel free to express with family or close friends. Counselling can be that safe place where they don't have to worry about burdening others with their feelings.

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.

It is natural to grieve in our own individual way after suffering a loss. This can be the loss of a beloved life partner or family member. Strong emotional pain can also be experienced at the loss of a way of life or even the end of a career. If you are stuck and need some support to regain your balance please call me. You need not walk this path alone.

Grief and Loss is a natural experience that we all encounter at some point in our life. Mourning, which is the outward expression of our grief, can only occur when a safe and inviting space is created without judgment or a need to jump to fixing anything. Grief is a process that is very different for each individual. Sessions will work with you and where you are at through the needs of mourning.

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.
