Losing a loved one can bring up a breadth of feelings that can often seem overwhelmingly difficult to manage. In addition to offering support and empathy, I will explore with you the experience of your loss. Together, we will bring to light the meaning of that loss, both in terms of your connection with your loved one, as well as its overall significance in your life and other relationships.

Grief & Loss

Susan Patten, M.Sc., R.P.

Registered Psychotherapist

320 Danforth Ave. Suite #202, Toronto, ON M4K 1N8

Dealing with grief requires addressing the many layers of life that grief touches. Facing the loss of a loved one can also bring up reminders of other losses we have experienced - some of which may still feel unresolved, and are now coming to the surface along with the acute pain that the current situation brings. Since grief is ultimately about loss of connection, my approach involves finding unique ways of "reconnecting" and healing the wounds that can be left behind when a painful loss has been experienced. I provide a safe and compassionate environment to assist in healing through grief and understanding all aspects of the grieving process as it evolves.

Paul Parnass, M.S.W. R.S.W.

Registered Social Worker

Yonge and Eglinton, Toronto, ON M4P 1G4

Life is fragile. At any moment our life can be turned upside down by the loss of a loved one. If you are suffering from a loss, I will support you and offer you a safe place in which to express your grief. My approach is based on an understanding of the dynamics of loss, combined with my own experience in handling loss in my life. Loss can take other forms as well...such as the loss of a job, the loss of a relationship, or the loss of health. Together we will discuss your pain and come to understand the impact your loss has had on you. We will then develop new ways to manage your loss so that you can move forward again.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Toronto, ON M5J 2T3

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.

Clients who are experiencing grief and loss can benefit from a better understanding of how the deep emotions and feelings can support new growth and ways at looking at the world. By considering elements of the experience through memory, dreams, and reflections, great power and strength can be found. Grief and loss are normal and healthy states of being, as long as they don't overwhelm and debilitate, understanding them in the context of therapy will not only benefit the individual but those around them and generations to come.

Jungian Analyst, Clinical Member, OSP

437 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto, ON M6R 3B9

There is nothing so powerful as the death of someone or something close to us. Death seems to open up a sacred place where we ponder questions of meaning, and the mystery and the worth of life. Jung says "When death confronts us, life always seems like a downward flow or like a clock that has been wound up and whose eventual " Grief and loss are unfortunately a natural part of life and the failure to acknowledge this inevitability can turn into a fear of life - neurotic resistances, depressions and other psychological distresses. My approach creates a safe space to allow the natural process of grief to restore you back to life.
