Grief results in emotional, physical, spiritual, mental, and social reactions that are unique to each individual. For many people, the initial reaction involves an "I can't believe it happened" shock response. For the shock, anger, and sadness responses - Observed & Experiential Integration is an amazing help to people, as it reduces these intense emotions.. Having experienced OEI therapy myself for the traumatic death of a loved one in a vehicle rollover, and having helped others through a variety of traumatic losses, I am witness countless times to the effectiveness of OEI therapy in reducing the overwhelming emotions and sense of loss.

In my practice the death of a loved one brings many people for counselling. It is important for clients to learn the stages of grief and have a sympathetic person to validate all that they are going through. As Allan Wolfelt teaches, the bereaved must learn that changing the relationship with their loved one from one of presence to one of memory and redirecting one’s energy and initiative toward the future often takes longer- and involves more hard work-than most people are aware. Certification in grief and loss counselling has given me the skills to work with clients in a gentle, patient and affirming way.

When someone we love dies, we experience grief. Grief is what we feel inside, but mourning is how we express our feelings. In order to recover from grief, we must mourn, and grief therapy provides a safe place to do that. Some people express their grief by talking, others use various mediums like art, music, and different forms of expression that take them through the stages of grief

Loss is a part of life, but never easy to face. We can experience grief and loss around many different circumstances, including death of people and pets, moving, job loss, illness, regretted decisions, separation/divorce, abuse, trauma and life transitions (including positive ones like marriage, new baby, new job, etc.) When the loss is traumatic in nature, it can take months--even years--to move through. While the past cannot be undone, counselling can help you move forward by adjusting to, accepting and even embracing the “new normal”.

Grieving is one of the most painful experiences you can have. It may be caused by the death of someone you love, illness, disappointment or for many other reasons. It may start even before the loss and usually continues long after it. You may feel devastated, abandoned, angry, sleepless, depressed, miserable, in pain or lonely. You may think you will never feel happy again. Sometimes grieving is delayed or denied for a long time. Maybe you don't even know why you feel so unhappy. Dr Janice is an expert in general bereavement counseling with special expertise in child death and post abortion grieving. I will ask you to tell me the whole story of your loss and help you find comfort and relief.

There are many forms of Grief and Loss. Some losses are immediate and some are ongoing, as in the experience of having a loved one with a chronic illness. There is also the grief and loss that we experience as our own health is lost or when we lose a job or role in our lives that gave us a sense of purpose and passion. The key to gracefully experiencing grief and loss lies in learning how to feel safe being present with what you're feeling; how to know when what you're feeling is truly normal; and how to find a sense of true peace through balancing the memories and your appreciation of the past with the opportunities that exist now for finding new meaning and purpose in your life.
