Counsellor, Art Therapist

Toronto, ON M4W 1A8

The only thing predictable about grief and loss is it's unpredictability, and it can appear to have a life if it's own. Grief & loss is different for everyone, and can be extremely difficult and painful to manage. It is key to gain awareness of the process of grief & loss, and develop healthy coping strategies to respond to intense, difficult and unpleasant feelings. Knowing that you are not alone can make something that is very difficult, less difficult to deal with. Reaching out and talking to a professional can help manage and process these difficult and unpleasant feelings. This is how we heal...

Psychotherapist

This is such a vulnerable and difficult time where great compassion and tenderness is required. My approach includes the need to feel and express our in-depth feelings in order to heal grief and loss. I offer a way to explore this compassionately and more thoroughly in order that clients can emerge from this time of difficulty more whole and healed.

Douglas Saunders, Ph.D. C.Psych.

Registered Clinical Psychologist

123 Edwards Street, Suite 703, Toronto, ON M5G 1Z6

I am a senior clinical psychologist with 20 years experience working with people dealing with anticipatory grief, loss and bereavement following trauma, crises, lengthy illness, impaired functioning, job loss or retirement. My approach derives from my experience that grief, sadness and depression following bereavement is a natural, healing process that if respected and worked with provides the foundation for meaningful recovery and new life opportunities. I work collaboratively with clients to ensure they have timely support and the emotional space they need to work with their feelings.

Psychotherapist and Couples Counsellor

208 St Clair Ave West Suite #2, Toronto, ON M4V 1R2

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.

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.

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.

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.
