We experience grief throughout our lives. For a person who is dealing with grief or loss, individual or group therapy can provide support that is most beneficial. Louisa provides a safe environment via individual or group therapy. She shares information and tools that are helpful to those who have a recent or historical loss. In identifying issues that are related to our loss we can start to then move to the process of acceptance and further understanding.

Grief is a potential reaction to a loss of any kind whether through death, divorce, abandonment, separation, job loss, illness, disease diagnosis, kids leaving home, etc. Feelings of anger, resentment, shame, confusion, isolation or abandonment can result. Friends and family may not know what to say or how to provide support. A trained professional, who is profoundly sympathetic, respectful and empathetic, with the skills required to help one navigate through this difficult time, can be critical in helping one regain equilibrium.

When you lose a part of your life it can impact every part of who you are. Whether what you lost was person, pet, job or ability, it is hard to say goodbye. If your loss was expected or unexpected, the pain and grief that you feel hits hard, sometimes more than we think we can bear. There is no set timeframe to "get over" a loss. Each person has their own journey with grief. Jadon Ward can help you to reflect on the significance of the loss in your life, how to cope with grief, and a future that honours what you had to leave behind.

Loss is a universal experience in our lives, and one that most of us are not well-prepared to deal with. Loss can come in many forms, although the more typical ones that we think of are the death of a loved one, the diagnosis of a serious health issue, or the ending of an important relationship. Regardless of the type of loss that has happened, there are some things we can expect when we are dealing with Grief & Loss. Specifically, I strive to develop individualized plans to support clients through their grief and loss journey.

Grief is a response to the loss of someone to who we are attached to. Generally speaking the greater the attachment to someone, the greater the sense of loss experienced. Loosing someone close to you can be very difficult to deal with because grief has physical, cognitive, behavioral, social and spiritual dimensions. Choosing some one to walk along side of you that has the training to help you during the difficult task of recovery is very important and can often shorten the process of resolving grief significantly.

Grief is a normal part of everyone's life. Grief is how we respond to loss. It could be loss of loved one, a pet, a way of life, a relationship or a job. Working through grief is a process. We will work through the overwhelming feelings of sadness, loneliness, guilt, anger or regret that may be happening for you. Working through grief will help you feel more connected, increase your capacity for joy and help bring balance back to you life.

Grief is a natural response to loss. One of the most important things we can do for grief is to honour it's presence. I will help you process the emotions around your grief, help you to put words to things you are feeling and hold space for you to feel all your feelings. Contrary to popular belief, grief involves any kind of loss, not just the loss of life, this could mean transitions, moves etc.

Whenever anyone suffers a loss – whether it is small or significant, a process of grieving needs to take place. It is a way of coming to terms with the impact that the loss has had, and will continue to have on your life. Many times that process will happen naturally over time, but there are circumstances where significant losses can interrupt our lives and interfere with our ability to handle and manage everyday existence. If you are struggling with being able to move forward, and feel like you need additional support to help you through this trying time in your life, don’t hesitate to call. We are always there for you.
