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.

Though every experience of loss is personal and unique, there are maps to help us navigate this painful process. Sometimes present grief is complicated by past losses that have re-surfaced and this can make dealing with it alone especially difficult. As an experienced and knowledgeable counsellor in the area of Loss and Grief, I can support you in not feeling overwhelmed. I am there as a compassionate listener and witness, as well as a guide, as your heart heals and you are able to celebrate life again.

Throughout life, everyone will face loss at one time or another, from losing our job, to the death of someone we love. The losses we experience in life can cause us to feel complex emotions. These emotions are typically known as grief.
 When dealing with grief, it’s common to experience intense feelings like sadness, anger, anxiety, disbelief, panic, relief or even numbness. It can also affect the way you think, causing feelings of hopelessness, depression and anxiety. In some cases, you might even feel like you’re going crazy. Don’t worry, you’re not!
 Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away.

Everyone copes with loss differently. The death of a loved one, job loss, miscarriage, death of a pet and major life changes can all trigger feelings of grief or loss. It may feel like the grieving will never stop and the pain is insurmountable. in fact, if you or a loved one is experiencing grief as a debilitating emotion then seeking help is essential. Resolving these feelings of grief and loss, with healthy coping methods, ensures that you are able to function and avoid larger issues in the future.

Without a doubt, losing someone in your life is THE most painful experience we can have. I know. I've experienced loss myself. I also know how those around us want us to 'get over' the loss as soon as possible because they care about us, but also because people just don't know how to cope with loss in the lives of others. It feels awkward to them. We can feel it. But we just can't get back to 'normal' when our lives have been shattered. It takes time, and often lots of it. And, as you know, there's no 'getting over' loss; it simply becomes a part of the fabric of who we are. But, in time, we can move forward to re-engage fully in our lives. Let me help you do exactly that.

We all deal with loss in our lives, whether through injury, death, or life transitions. However, everyone’s grieving process is unique. I work with you to absorb what has happened, to make sense of the experience, and to explore what it means for you to move ahead. Because loss is a stressful experience, I help you take steps to stay as healthy as possible during the process, in the domains of family, work, and life.

Many of the usual grief behaviors may seem like manifestations of depression. These emotions and behaviors may include such things as: sadness, anger, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, fatigue, shock, preoccupation, sleep/appetite disturbance and social withdrawal. Although these reactions are all very normal, some people may be troubled by the length of time or the severity to which they are experiencing them. This is a good place to try counselling for guidance through the stages of mourning.

I help clients navigate their loss whether it be from the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of something important such as a job, a pet, a friendship, or oneself. My approach to helping clients addresses regrets, change, acceptance, anger, and sadness. With people who have lost their loved one, I teach ways of keeping their loved one "alive" and honouring them rather than using traditional approaches of "letting go" and "moving on," which are being shown to be unhelpful and unreasonable for many clients. This fresh perspective helps my clients through a difficult time in their lives while teaching meaningful strategies to use throughout their lives.

Most of us will grieve at some point in our lives. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, an unborn child, a marriage or relationship, a career, a friendship, or a pet, there are all kinds of losses that can be felt deeply and affect our ability to cope with daily life and show up in our relationships with others. I work with clients to help them give voice to their grief, develop coping strategies for getting through this difficult time, tend to the very real emotional pain, and gain strength to create a path forward in a way that honours their loss.
