Working through grief and mourning, is often a long-term process. There can be a range of emotions, thoughts and physical experiences as you adjust to your life after a loss. Significant life changes may include the loss of a loved one, pet, relationship, pregnancy, job, divorce, a move and relationship. I can help by listening to however you need to speak about your loss, at anytime in your experiences. Mourning is a normal and very personal process that does not have a time limit. Yet, sometimes you may feel stuck and at those times, it can be helpful to use on EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to work through those sticking points.

Grief and loss is inevitable in life. All change, no matter how small or how large, involves moving through the grief process. Unfortunately, some people have not had secure attachment relationships to enable this natural process. When we haven't processed the normal developmental changes and losses in our lives, we find other means to overcome the loss such as numbing, obsessive behaviours, or anxiety and depression. Processing grief and loss requires a safe, skillful, dependable, reliable counsellor to help guide you through.

Taking the time to honour any loss, intense or subtle, is to allow grief's pain and sadness to have space in our lives. Whether it's learning about the stages of grief, experiencing bereavement, anticipatory grief, or dealing with reminders and anniversaries, coping with emotional suffering is made bearable with healthy coping. Everyone grieves differently and the experience must be highly personalized, and sometimes even a sacred process, that unfolds over time.

The issue of grief and loss often centres around relationships but it can also involve your personal expectations, hopes and dreams. Sometimes grief and loss as a core issue can be apparent and sometimes it is more subtle. I will work with you to help identify where grief and loss may exist in your life and from there, we can develop strategies to help you attend to and manage it.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

Grief is a natural reaction to loss. The death of a family member, a pet, or even the end of a relationship can trigger the bereavement process. Grief counselling can help you deal with overwhelming feelings including sadness, anger, depression and guilt. Together we can talk about your loss and any unresolved issues in a way that is supportive and compassionate.

While grief is a normal response to loss, it can create a sense of despair and hopelessness. It can result from the death of a loved one, the loss of a pet, the loss of meaningful job or career, the end of a relationship, the diagnosis of illness or disease, or any major life transition. As a grief counsellor, I offer a sensitive and compassionate environment in which to honour that loss, and help you move toward acceptance and renewal.

Grief is a multilayered emotion that can come in waves, it can wax and wane, or it can completely throw you off your feet at different times in your life. I am here to help you gain footing by providing a compassionate and safe space to explore the difficult and complex terrain of grief. I will meet you wherever you are in your grieving experience and provide you with a safe and compassionate space to move within it in meaningful ways. I will offer information about the grieving process to help you understand some of the confusing, distressing and overwhelming feelings you may be experiencing and to help promote confidence in your ability to navigate through this challenging time.

We grieve with each "goodbye" we say. Some losses hit us harder then others. Therapy can allow you to process, find some meaning in, and ultimately to make peace with the loss. The goal here is not to forgot about the loss but rather to make space in you to allow the loss to sit. This is an important distinction because everyone accumulates losses and we have to find a way to hold these losses with as much integrity as we can.

Feelings of grief following significant loss are normal and healthy. It is when grief is protracted, denied, delayed or becomes complicated by other factors that therapeutic intervention may be necessary. It is common in our culture for people to feel as though they should not have to grieve or that they should grieve only in a certain way or for a prescribed period of time. Being facilitated by a compassionate, trained counsellor, who encourages the sadness, despair and anger associated with grief to flow freely can greatly assist a person who is having difficulty grieving. People often need to be reassured that these feelings will eventually subside and that life is still worth living.

When your grief hurts those closest to you or interferes with your day to day functioning, you need to look at what is happening to you. This is where a trained outsider can be of help. We all go through similar stages of grief when faced with a significant loss, but in our own unique way. We need to take the time and address that what we can at each moment. By making sense of where you are in the grieving process, clarifying your beliefs and expectations of the time it will take and what the end result should be, you can open up the possibility to move where you need to be. I use my own experience of loss and relevant therapeutic insights to guide you through the grieving process.

In V8V 2K3 - Nearby to Metchosin.

When we lose someone important to us, or even when we experience a major life change, we can feel as though we, too, are lost. We've been cast out into a world that feels wrong, or seems like it has no meaning at all. And yet loss and change, and the grief that comes with them, are an unavoidable part of being human. As an Art Therapist I can help you to find your way through grief. While many feelings are common (anger, guilt, sadness, apathy, anxiety and exhaustion for example) your reaction will still be unique. I can teach you how to use creativity to honour your past, release your pain, and reconnect to life again with meaning, energy, and yes, even with joy.

The pain of loss comes in many forms, both tangible and intangible. Often there is not only loss of a specific person, situation, or matter, but also the pain of the loss of hopes, dreams, and visions for the future. How one deals with loss varies. One may become aggressive and angry, withdrawn and passive, or perhaps mask their depression as they carry on. Healing from the pain of loss and separation is a process. Through therapy, you will be helped to be with all your own feelings and meanings and to express them in a safe and confidential relationship. The therapeutic relationship gives essential support for choosing how you want to move on with your life.
