Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

453 Head Street, West Bay Marina, Victoria, British Columbia

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.

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.

When Grief and Loss enter our lives it can feel lonely, confusing and unendurable. It can feel like we're at the mercy of such agony, with no available escape. As a Spiritual Director, Laura can assist clients to bring about an inner recognition towards their own pre-existing nature; they are a spark of Divinity and they posess an inner resilience and knowing beyond their present earthly view.

Grief Counsellor

Shelley Dewar, M.A., R.C.C.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#224 - 645 Fort Street, Victoria, British Columbia

Grief is a natural response to losses in our lives such as deaths, separation/divorce, loss of health or abilities, etc... Sometime a current loss touches on past losses which can be confusing, unsettling, and even overwhelming. In practice, I have heard clients say that after some time has past, they no longer feel like they can talk to their family and friends about what they're going through. This leaves them feeling isolated. In a compassionate way, I will be with you in your grief process and help you start to develop a sense of moving forward and reconnecting with life.

Registered Professional Counsellor

Cadboro Bay area, Victoria, British Columbia

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#7 - 1921 Fernwood Rd, Victoria , British Columbia

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 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.

Grief Counsellor

Michelle Gay, M.A., RCC, CCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Canadian Certified Counsellor, Teacher (BC and TESL Canada)

1124 Fort Street, Victoria, British Columbia

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 Counsellor

Registered Clinical Counsellor

215 - 2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, British Columbia

The experience of grief and loss is profoundly different for each person. As such, my work with clients focuses on carefully attuning to the unique cognitive, emotional and physiological experiences of grief. My mandate is to work alongside each client in creating a space where they can explore their own deeply personal process of loss and grief without judgement. I collaborate therapeutically with each client at all stages of their healing journey in order to provide the best counselling possible for those at every stage of the grieving process. As a result, clients feel understood, relieved, renewed and at peace.

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.

Grief Counsellor

Hannah Caradonna, MSW, RCSW, RCC

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Registered Clinical Counsellor

#318-1175 Cook St., Victoria, British Columbia

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.

Grief Counsellor

Twila Lavender, M.Couns, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

367 Stannard Ave, Victoria, British Columbia

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.

Grief Counsellor

Maureen Drage, MA, RCC, RSW

Registered Clinical Counsellor

208-2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, British Columbia

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.
