Registered Professional Counsellor and Life Coach

Kelowna , British Columbia V1W 3G3 | (250) 870-2732

Here's what clients have said: "When I came to see you, I felt that I was talking to a friend who understood and was in no way judgmental. ....I always felt better after leaving your office...You seemed to know when to talk and when to let me talk - which was most of the time." "Thank you Kathryn for creating a safe place where I could be free to be in the very depths of my grief and yet always knew I wasnt alone. ...Unlike other people who wanted me to stop crying and "just get over it" you seem to understand how grief overrides reason and problem solving. Most people want me to move on so they wont feel uncomfortable Im sad. You always made it about me, my process and my needs."

Having lost a husband and many family members, I can relate to someone who has lost a loved one through sudden tragedy and expected illness. Having lost close friends through moving, job loss, health and other losses, I too have expereinced some of these. Loss is not only through death. Grief is not something that you must go through alone. There is no time limit or "wrong" way. A gentle and firm guidance through your processing, re-learning and acceptance.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

Kelowna, Kelowna, British Columbia V4V 1E7 | 250-878-5876

Grief and loss are frequently a root cause of substance abuse, addiction and disorders. The grief process tends to deplete a person's resources, taking up a great deal of their physical, mental, and emotional energy. The absence is not the only thing they are mourning. Their plans, dreams and wishes have changed, and they are being required to let go of the future they anticipated. The phases of mourning include a desire to reverse the loss, feelings of pain and chaos, and the reordering of one's life. At Valiant Recovery, clients receive personalized grief counseling tailored to their needs, as well as specialized sessions on grief and loss.

When losing someone or something important to us, it can take lots time to adjust and learn to live our life without that person, thing or way of life. Either it is the death of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of a pet, loss of a job or important possessions, change to your way of life, grieving is a normal response to a life event and bottling it up can create damage or even harm to a person. It can take time to adjust and accept to learn to live life without that person, thing or way of life. When it gets too challenging or overwhelming, or if it gets in a way of living a healthy life, sometimes turning to professional support can help getting through this challenging event.

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.

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Canadian Certified Counsellor, Certified EMDR Therapist

#214 - 3001 Tutt Street, Kelowna, British Columbia V1Y 2H4 | 778-821-1745

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.

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

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

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.
