Grief & Loss
Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling
Location: 9 Livingston Ave, Grimsby
Grief is the emotional suffering we feel when we lose something or someone important to us. This can include the loss of friend, partner, or family member, a change in life circumstances, death of a pet, getting fired, loss of health, safety, a dream... anything that we once had and now do not. The intensity and process can be unique for each person, but like all other emotions that impact the quality of our life, ignoring it or suppressing it does not work. Seeking support as we move through the various stages of grief is very helpful. Planning for our healing is crucial so that we do not become 'stuck' in the pain. A skilled therapist can assist us during this vulnerable time.

Grief is sorrow or mental suffering that is a result of a loss, affliction, regret, etc.
Grief is a normal response to a loss or significant change. Talking to others about our grief allows us to heal quicker. Getting through our grief takes time. For some the bigger the loss the longer it takes to deal with our grief. In some cases a smaller loss could speed the grieving process and could take only a few hours, days or even weeks to get through it. For moderate loss the time could be months to a year and for severe loss the grieving could take much longer. At David James and Associates work with the individual and families to transition through their period of grief.
