The pain of loss comes in many forms. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no "right" way to do it. Often there is not only the loss of a specific person or situation, but also the pain of the loss of hopes, dreams and future visions. Healing from loss and separation takes time. Therapy can provide a safe place to explore emotions, understand one's sense of loss/ grief and find ways to manage feelings. The human heart holds a great capacity for both sorrow and joy.

Grief and loss are unavoidable. We may think that time alone will enable us to heal, but this is rarely the case. Although time does help in the healing process, to truly heal we need to work through our losses and the grief they bring. I can help you to do just that. I do not believe we were meant to shoulder our grief on our own. So if you find yourself somehow "stuck", and unable to truly move on, please contact me.

Grief and loss can impact a person greatly! The important part to recognize is that there isn't a right way to grieve and there isn't only one way to do it. Interactive Counselling respects your loss and helps you work through the grief that you are encountering, and do so in your way. This will help the process of grieving your loss be more organic and true to who you are. We will support you and walk along side you so you never feel alone during this difficult time.

Losing someone or something in your life such as death of a loved one, death of a pet, loss of a job, a relationship breakup, or loss of a dream can be devastating. It is normal to feel sad, alone, angry, depressed, and even numb. It is important to find ways to cope with the loss you are experiencing. Counselling can help you gain support and comfort during this difficult time, make peace with the loss, find meaning from your loss and allow you to have a meaningful future.

Candy recognizes that the grief and loss process is unique for all individuals. She meets the clients where they are at and uses education about the grief and loss process to address some of the common myths and the well meaning but misplaced advice from others (like there is a specific period of time for grieving that applies to everyone and after that people should move on). Candy understands that sometimes people feel like they are going crazy, or like they are never going to be able to move on with their lives. Through a compassionate presence and offering people a context for their loss, Candy can assist people in addressing their grief and in finding some inner peace.

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.

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.

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 ....

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.

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.

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
