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.

Recovering from a painful loss is always difficult. Most people do not realize or understand how far-reaching a process it is. It can encompass all areas of your life and always take much longer and hurt much more, than you ever imagined! While grief is usually associated with the loss of someone you loved, it can also be the loss of other major aspects of your life as well. A loss of a job or career can be devastating, as can the loss of one's healtho or our meaning in life. I can help by walking with you on this journey. So you are not feeling so lost. Help you understand the reasons why you're stuck and together find ways to carve out a new path for you so you can move forward again!

Is it time to let go of the pain? Grief and loss can stay with us for months and even years. When we know how, letting go of grief and loss becomes easy. When we let go of the pain, we have room for new joy and new connections. Sometimes we believe if we let go of the pain, we let go of the connection to person. But, what I have found is that we don't lose any of the love. In fact ,the connection and the love can even increase. You can let go of all the pain, while the keeping the love in tact. When you are ready to move forward and let go the pain contact websterconsulting@shaw.ca, or call 604-992-0629

Grief is a normal and appropriate reaction to the death of a loved one, the experience of separation/divorce, intergenerational loss, or the loss of opportunity. While there are similarities in how individuals work through loss, grief is a complicated and unique experience that requires helpers to be sensitive to the needs and experiences of those they are supporting. Specific tasks of grief counseling include emotional expression about the loss, accepting the loss, adjusting to life after the loss, and coping with the changes within oneself and the world after the loss.

Grief and loss does occur anytime we experience the loss of someone or something that we love and identify with. Although it can be normal to grieve, there can come a time when someone may feel stuck in this grief process and then they dicsover they need some help in looking at the situation differently. I can help a client identify their feelings and help them move forward through surrender and acceptance. If there is unfinished business with this person or situation, I would help my client resolve this problem though forgiveness. The ultimate purpose would be to be able to move forward in a constructive and loving manner, leaving behind all grievances and guilt.

Even though grief and loss are a normal part of human experience, in our society, we are often not equiped with adequate tools to help us deal with these normal life experiences. In fact, grief is often pathologized and not allowed appropriate processing space and time. Grief becomes a problem only if it is pushed away, disconnected and unprocessed. As a registered therapist, with extensive experience and training, I provide grief therapy offering a safe, gentle and respectful space where people can connect with normal healing resources, already present inside of them. As a result, they can discover ways to process grief that lead to powerful personal integration and a new perspective

Grief and loss of someone or something can be one of the most painful experiences we have as human being. It can also be very isolating and feel very much alone. What makes it so painful and difficult is because we cannot change what we have lost or bring back who we loss, but with therapy I will help you to come through the grief in a way that provides you with a sense of being okay in your life. To ease the pain and to really acknowledge how this has impacted you is the way to not be held captive to your grief without ever minimizing how much of an impact the loss has had on you and your life.

When dealing with grief and loss, successful results come from processing grief in a healthy manner and moving through to a place of feeling more settled. With my approaches of both EMDR & Neurofeedback (NFB), the brain is supported in a healthy manner to best allow the processing of loss and allow healing to take place. With NFB, neural connections are enhanced, affecting the Central Nervous System in a natural way to get the brain and body to be at its best. Once the brain training is completed, the effects last and the client is able to move forward in a settled fashion. With EMDR, clients can quickly decrease the intense and often negative emotional charge that loss brings.

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.

Loss is a normal yet profound event in everyone's life. It can be expected or sudden and devastating. Either way it often leaves us feeling as though our world has been forever changed and we find ourselves feeling lonely, lost, angry, sad, shocked or confused. Sometimes others, our fast paced society, or we ourselves expect us to move on quickly and deny or forget it. But grief has it's own story and it needs to be told. Therapy can help you sort out the many facets of your grief and offer resources and strategies to help you cope. Grief changes us and challenges us to find new meaning in our lives when we give it the honor and respect it is due.

If you have lost someone close to you through death, relocation or the end of a relationship, and feel isolated and lonely, it takes time and support to gently move forward in life. If you are shy or feel anxiety in social situations it can be hard to reach out for help and create the supportive relationships you need. I can help you move forward, gain a new sense of self worth, and begin to create meaningful nurturing social connections.

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.

Even though we would want to tell the client that grief and loss is a neat process of 5 - 7 stages (denial, anger... acceptance), it is usually experienced as a roller coaster of emotions and it takes a different amount of time for every individual. What I do is to help clients embrace and express different levels of pain: 1) talking about emotional experience, without showing the emotion; 2) talking with emotional reactions (tears coming, trembling voice); 3) silent crying; 4) sobbing and 5) loud crying and screaming. Finally, we should not forget that moderate denial is natural (like a temporary break from grief). And yes, grief can shake our faith, but it usually leads to acceptance.
