The inevitability of loss of a loved one is something we will all encounter, but each person grieves in their own way. Sessions focus on talk therapy, and finding personal ways to commemorate loss. I have worked with children who have lost parents, adults who have lost friends and women who have lost their pregnancies. Each carries with it its own pain and path to growth.

While grief and transition are a natural part of life, we are still often overwhelmed by sadness, anger and all the confusing emotions that come with loss. There is no right or wrong way to grieveā€”just your body and mind doing what it can to process the pain of major life change and the loss of how things were. Working with me means compassionate care that helps you to approach and feel your feelings in a safe way, taking things one step at a time. I promise you that all grief can be transformed into a gentle honouring of who or what was lost. I would be happy to team up with you in your journey towards peace and acceptance.

Anyone who has experienced grief will tell you that sometimes they feel numb, and other times in deep pain. That it visits in waves. I believe this is because our mind and body know that it would be too much to process all at once so we experience it in doses, and that with the right help it will feel more and more manageable to bear over time. My approach to therapy is tailored to meet your needs and can include sessions targeted at reducing the trauma of the event, or when you first learned of the loss. As well as open and flexible sessions for exploring what this means for you and how to stay connected to what or who was lost, while also experiencing life in a way that feels okay for you

Grief and loss are a part of all of our lives. If you are experiencing grief and loss then often it is helpful to speak in confidence to a professional who is empathetic and understands the grieving process. There are many ways we can be affected by grief including loss due to death, marriages ending, relationships, jobs, or friends. Benefits of seeking counselling at these times can be to identify and better understand our feelings, to express our grief in a safe place with a compassionate listener who is free from judgement and to explore ideas of the best ways for you to move forwards.

My approach when working with grief and loss is to honour the relationship with your lost loved one. We have this idea that when someone dies that we are not supposed to talk about them anymore as if they never existed and that you are supposed to mourn and move on. I do not believe that is helpful. Instead, I believe there is a way to grieve that honours the person who no longer walks the earth and keeps the relationship alive. Death is the end of their physical presence but not their influence on your life.
