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.

The death of a loved one, or the loss of a relationship, identity, role, possession, or job can be extremely difficult to live with. How do you endure and make sense of the unfathomable? Although grieving in relation to loss is a normal response, sometimes we become immobilized by it, and need help and support in order to deal with it effectively. Dr Sloat can support you by helping you to, 1) Process and work through your grief, 2) Find new meaning and purpose in the face of tragedy, and 3) Find the courage to eventually move on.

Life isn’t always what we want it to be. People die; relationships can end; life gives some terrible surprises. Normally when we experience loss we slowly adjust to a new reality. But we can experience “complicated grief” – getting stuck in grieving somehow. Negative feelings, like anger, regrets, or guilt can hang around. Life can seem more difficult (work, your relationship, your feelings about yourself, e.g.). Perhaps you feel alone, or stuck fighting. Counselling can help you identify and process what is going on. I can help you connect to your past while figuring out how to move forward. I provide a safe, unbiased place to share your story and resolve your experience.

Whether it is a loss of friend, pet, spouse, innocence, country, ability- in the fast pace of our society we are often expected and pressured to move on, to function, to put ourselves together. Yet grieving the loss takes time and is such an important part of maturing as a person. I see many people in my practice who to their surprise are discovering in their late life that they still carry unresolved pain from childhood or early adulthood losses. In the spacious and attentive environment of therapist's office, we can begin to allow ourselves to fully grieve our losses, to move from a place of broken heart to heart-full wholeness.

Grief and loss are both universal and unique experiences. We all experience them from time to time and the experience can be overwhelming and debilitating. I will help you understand that experiences inform us but do not define us - we can choose our path through grief and loss and leave it behind, changed but not broken or damaged. There is life in front of us to be lived and every experience we have is important and informative to who we become.

If you are reading this description because you have recently suffered a loss, please know that I am deeply sympathetic to your pain. In therapy, my intent is to bear witness to your suffering, to ensure that your emotions are sorted through and given open expression, and then to help find meaning in what often seems a meaningless situation. I believe that grief is complicated, highly personal, and not responsive to formulas or prescribed methods of treatment. There is only an untread path, and I would be honoured to walk it with you.

Major loss and grief effects many of us to some extent in our lives. I believe in the value of the grieving process and the importance of not rushing through it or cutting it off. Grief can be unpredictable and needs to be honored as we move through life’s most difficult challenge. I can work with you through the full range of feelings—anger, fear, gratitude, love, despair – whatever is coming up for you on a given day.

When someone to whom you are attached dies or abandons you, you may be devastated, lonely, angry, sleepless, miserable. You may believe that never again will you be happy. Maybe you feel guilt. Your grieving may be delayed or denied for many years because it is squeezed out by other concerns. Unfinished grieving has the power to disturb your life long afterward and you may not realize what the reason is. I will ask you the story of your loss. Dr. Janice is an expert in general grief work, child death, child loss and post abortion grieving. Grief counseling will help you to find peace and acceptance and to go on with your life. Other losses include loss of health, employment or relationship.

Going through grief and loss can leave your whole world frozen and meaningless. Through therapy with me, you will find a road back to meaning and recover your life energy. The process of grieving is one of acceptance and through acceptance and letting go, you can actually regain your wisdom with a profound sense of strength and new insights. There are many types of loss, from losing a close person or pet, to leaving your home city or house, or even losing a job or losing a relationship through separation and divorce, as well as through death. There is also the very real loss of hope and dreams, plans that may be lost through death, separation or illness. With gentle support, I will help you.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.
