Our culture recognizes the loss through death with multiple formal rituals, that typically last a short time. Grieving the death of a loved one takes much longer, and doesn't end when the flowers wilt, as those around a grieving person might expect. Loss is so much broader than death...loss of roles, loss of relationship, loss of meaning...these are also losses that need to be grieved in a manner that others may not understand but are crucially important.

Grief and Loss bring about changes in our lives and change can be stressful. We all handle our stress in different ways and at different rates. Some of us handle our stress in healthy ways and some of us do not. How are you handling your loss? Are you coping in a healthy way? If not, maybe it is time to connect with someone who can share in your experience and help you see your way through the grieving process by learning to cope and reconnect. The benefits may be similar to the feeling you have when the sun shines after a rainstorm. Relief.

Dealing with grief from personal experince is something I can offer. My father was accidentally killed in an industrial accident when I was three years old. I grew up in single parent family with mom and five siblings. Recently my mother passed away. Grief is a personal expierince. We all grieve differently. Counselling can help you understand your own personal grief journey.

Winnipeg, MB R2V 0B2

I’m not sure that when a loved one dies we ever completely get over their absence in our lives. My hope is that, together we co-create an environment of understanding, compassion and safety where we can work through, vs. get over, such a tragic loss. Working through requires an individual to process their thoughts and feelings in the presence of at least one other that can facilitate the required safe & secure environment.

Counselling Therapist

#716 - 177 Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3B 0W5

So many of the losses we experience come suddenly; our life changes in an instant from what it used to be. All of us experience this at times; sometimes in waves and torrents it seems will sink us. We have all either had, or will have, our sufferings. I endeavor to help by finding resiliency, coming to terms with what is, and discovering renewed purpose beyond the depth of real loss.

The death of a loved one is a crisis that changes and challenges the meaning of your life and sense of self. This can result in deep sadness, confusion, disorientation and disbelief.

You can experience a sense of peace and hope for the future. You can learn to cherish and find comfort in his/her memory.

Social Work Therapist

Grief is a reaction to loss that can encompass a range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and is experienced differently by each person according to his or her culture, background, gender, beliefs, personality, and relationship to the deceased or loss. Feelings common to grief are sadness and yearning. Guilt, regret, anger, and a sense of meaninglessness can also be present. Some may also a feel a sense of relief and liberation. Emotions can be surprising in their strength or mildness, contrary to the expectations of the griever; they can also be confusing, such as missing a painful relationship.

We experience loss throughout our lifetime in various ways. When we mourn we allow ourselves to heal. In group settings and individual sessions I have helped those who need to process their loss to experience comfort and lasting peace. If you are struggling with loss you can journey through it confident that you will not be alone in it and that you will have someone caring for you throughout it.

Grieving is important to do. It's let's us understand the importance of what was lost. When the sadness gets in the way of moving forward in life, it can become a deterrent to future growth. Allowing the feelings of loss to be released is the next step. Time Line™ Therapy Techniques, Hawaiian Huna Kane Body Work, Reiki and Kahi are ways of releasing issues of grief and loss. Feeling more peaceful and calm and remembering that change is always happening, is part of the work.
