Canadian Certified Counsellor

Is it time to let go of the pain? Grief and loss can stay with us for months and even years. When we know how, letting go of grief and loss becomes easy. When we let go of the pain, we have room for new joy and new connections. Sometimes we believe if we let go of the pain, we let go of the connection to person. But, what I have found is that we don't lose any of the love. In fact ,the connection and the love can even increase. You can let go of all the pain, while the keeping the love in tact. When you are ready to move forward and let go the pain contact websterconsulting@shaw.ca, or call 604-992-0629

EMDR, Emotion Focused Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy are evidence based therapies for depression. Because every situation and individual is unique, depending upon a client’s issues, circumstances, history, relationships and so on, I do an initial consultation with you to determine which therapy is the appropriate approach to your healing. After the consultation I work with you developing a treatment plan best suited to your needs for a safe and effective outcome. This treatment plan frequently includes a combination of all three therapies. EMDR is used to resolve issues from the past. It has shown clinical effectiveness in symptom reduction and long-term recovery with the following ....

Certified EAP, Solution Focused Therapist & Coach

1823 Harvey Ave, Unit 204, Kelowna, British Columbia

Phil's compassionate and non-judgmental approach to grief and loss is to work with the client's narrative or situation to better understand the nature of their process. To appreciate and collaborate with the client in deciding on what, if any, obstacles or useful methods their may be in moving through their grieving process. Consideration is given to the various tasks/stages of grieving and whether the grieving process is frustrated by complications due to surrounding internal / external relationship or association with the loss. Phil works in concert with other treating professional such as doctors, psychiatrist, therapists, etc.

There are several tasks of grieving that a person must go through. Sometime our grief is complex grief (being hurt by another person or being responsible for the loss ourselves.) It does not matter how early in the grieving process that you seek help, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) will receive the excess emotional pain and speed up the process of grief.

Grief Counsellor

Ed Mitchell, RPC, MPCC, RTC, MTC, TFT (Dx)

Master Practioner Clinical Counselling, Psychotherapist

2140 Wilkinson Street, Kelowna, British Columbia

Grieving a significant loss in one's life can be a difficult journey for many. A person's loss may be of losing someone they were close to, and could be the loss of something else in their life that was significant to them. Reaching out for help in that journey at times can be crucial as people go through their experience. In therapy, my therapeutic approach to grief is varied and is one of helping clients to find answers that are meaningful to them and to help them "normalize" their journey.

Grief Counsellor

Dr. Zoë Sehn, PhD, MA, BA (Hons), RCC, CCC

Doctor of Psychotherapy and Counselling

Tutt Street, Kelowna, British Columbia

The experience of grief, whether through bereavement or another form of loss, is unique to each individual, as is my approach to working with you. Seeking help for grief does not mean prescribing to a set view of the way you 'should' go through this process, but rather involves working with you at the darkest depths, to help you discover your own path.

Grief Counsellor

Mary Ellen McNaughton, MEd. CCC

Registered Canadian Counsellor

230-1855 Kirschner Rd, Kelowna, British Columbia

Grief and loss can be overwhelming, confusing and debilitating. There are often overpowering feelings of sadness,fear, anxiety, guilt and anger as well as thoughts and stories that we tell ourselves and others tell us. Sometimes there are other people to support and many responsibilities beyond the work of grieving that seem to preclude the possibility of meeting our own needs for personal support. I use reflection and empathy in a person centered approach to create a haven of safety that facilitates a sense of clarity and self connection in the journey of grief.

Loss of relationship like any loss has significant emotional consequences and can have impacts across the life spectrum. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress. Processing and Resolving relationship loss can lead to significant better quality of life as well as significantly improved quality of future relationships.

Dave Scully, MSW, RCSW

Registered Clinical Social Worker

#206 1634 Harvey Ave, Kelowna, British Columbia

I have experience in the health and medical field helping clients adjust to life changing health events, death, and the challenges chronic illness can bring to individuals and families. Often, working with a therapist during these times helps us as we feel overwhelmed, and unsure how to find a new path, or who we can turn to when our need feels so great. I believe it is important to allow ourselves to feel and grieve deeply, so that we might later go on and arrive at a place of peace.

Grief Counsellor

Christina Fenske, RSW, BA Cert Hons

Registered Social Worker

230B - 1855 Kirschner Road, Kelowna, British Columbia

As a former Palliative and Critical Care Social Worker/ Counsellor I am very familiar with counselling individuals, families and groups on grief and loss. The death of a loved one or someone close can be an extremely painful and stressful time in anyone's life. I've been privileged to be part of many individuals grieving process and the emotions that can arise is different for different people for sure so not everyone has the same needs. When I work with people I take this into consideration and work with the person, or family where they are at in their process with things emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually. No matter where you're at, we will be there to support you.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

#214-3001 Tutt Street, Kelowna , British Columbia

When working with clients who are dealing with grief and loss issues, I believe that each grieving process is unique. I strive to help one understand that grief does not look like a linear progression or a series of steps. It can metaphorically be compared to waves of an ocean, with each wave comes a different series of feelings, thoughts and emotions. Helping clients build mindful tools and skills to meet each wave is my passion. I believe that grief work is some of the hardest but most life rewarding work a soul can accomplish.
