Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief and loss are a powerful experience with many aspects and dimensions. No two people go through it the same. And we have much loss in our lives, besides our loved ones, and each is a mourning experience. Loss is part of life, but it doesn't have to be only a negative experince. When worked with properly, such experiences can be transformative, and fuel your growth.

Different cultures express loss differently. They differ. on the loss of the soul vs.the loss of the body. In Egyptian cultures, even inanimate objects like clocks have 'ko' or 'sa'. So many clients, especially children, can't recognize spiritual death. Depressed people seem to be dead inside. This is greatly different from someone who stops breathing. I believe we are all of a 'divine soul', and even if the person has died, we can learn to remember him or her in spirit.

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.
