Finding our way through a painful loss and the associated grief can be a most difficult and excruciating journey for any of us to encounter. However, it is with the intention of gently guiding clients back on the road to recovery. Through gaining insight and courageously tackling the loss both willingly and openly has proven beneficial. Ultimately allowing themselves to profoundly heal.

Loving a loved-one may have a profound and debilitating effect on us. When working with those struggling with grief and loss, I have found that EMDR therapy is particularly beneficial. I work with clients to identify the particular aspects of the loss that is the most vivid, the negative self-beliefs held about the loss, and the attachment to the negative feelings. We then, collaboratively, work together to question the truth of these negative self-beliefs and dissolve the emotional pain surrounded by the loss. At the end of grief and loss therapy, clients have the potential of restoring the wonderful memories of their loved-ones, free from the pain of their departure.

While a natural response to loss, grief often leaves us feeling completely out of control - sometimes even scared of our feelings. It can be terrifying to think about falling into a dark place - especially if it's somewhere we've been before. Howe As if grief on its own isn't difficult enough, we sometimes experience a sense of pressure that comes with grief: something that makes us wonder if how we are grieving is normal or even acceptable. Addressing your grief can be nerve-wracking, whether you've been actively grieving or avoiding grieving. You may feel lost, abandoned, confused or heartbroken. These feelings are normal and understandable; and, you don't need to go through them alone.

Left alone grief and loss does not go away. It stay dormant and can affect your health. I help clients safely process their grief and loss using CBT and EFT. Many fear that if they start crying or talking about their loss that they will not stop. It takes more time and physical, mental & emotional energy to avoid dealing with your grief and loss than actually processing it. After processing the grief and loss, you may feel physically lighter, focus better and be less irritable. When you avoid processing grief and loss your focus is on the past and are less able to enjoy the present. Take back your life by going to counselling.

Grief is a normal response to loss. It’s the emotional pain you feel when something or someone you care about is no longer present in your life. Sometimes, the pain of loss can feel devastating.

When we lose someone that we care for, the pain that we feel can be unimaginable. Sometimes the grief process requires professional support to wade through this pain and arrive at a place of stability and acceptance. Grief counselling may focus on developing ways to honour and carry the memory of our loved one with us as we move forward. It may also take the focus of processing the complex and intense emotions associated with grief and loss.

grief and loss can hurt a person as much as physical pain. In life e are constantly loosing and gaining people in our lives, whether they are friends, lovers, or a death. The important thing is how we deal with those losses and the way we heal them by dealing appropriately with the lack of connection or attachment. we need to see if there is the possibility of maintaining those attachments and if not how to heal them in us.

Clients experiencing grief and loss can often benefit from a supportive therapeutic process. It can allow a space to explore feelings without having to take care of anyone else-it is just for them. Clients can also explore blocks or complications to grieving that might be contributing to their struggle, for instance older traumas, difficulty with feeling or expressing their emotions.

Grieving is the intense pining or yearning for the loss of anything; for example it could be a job, a particular time, your health, an object or a person. One can feel disbelief, shock, fear, anger, frustration, sadness, abandoned, hopeless, shame and/or humiliation. How is the loss affecting you? Any loss can be traumatic, life altering and difficult to cope with. The pain may never completely go away but it can be managed in a healthy way.

Rather than drive our grief and loss underground or deep into our unconscious, therapy allows us to focus on the pain of our loss with all its multiple layers. Processing our thoughts with the spoken word rather than keeping them as mere mental reflections permits us to actively embrace our pain. We experience clarity and eventually direction to our grieving process. We can in time come to a place of sorrowful acceptance. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross gives us understanding of the grief and loss process in her Five Stages of Grief. However, it is important to note that these stages are not linear in their progression and are somewhat unique to each individual.

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.

Clients have told me they find it beneficial when I help them to understand the grieving process which includes shock, sadness, anger and acceptance. I help and encourage clients to work through each of these stages, as opposed to trying to avoid or distract themselves from their grief. Putting your loss "on a shelf" may be an adaptive coping strategy temporarily, but long-term you will likely find yourself stuck or stagnating.

Grief, loss, and bereavement, whether it is the passing of a loved one, the end of a career, or the falling-apart of a relationship are all similar: we are losing or have lost an important part of our lives. Understanding the emotions, feelings, and behaviours we have when we experience grief and bereavement is part of helping us accept what has occurred, why we feel the way that we are feeling, and what is next for us. In working with clients on grief, loss, and bereavement it is important to understand that the way we process these experiences is unique to each person, and the pillar of respect is paramount.

Losing someone that you love can be totally life altering. It is a uniquely painful experience that brings so many emotions, and yet at times, can leave you feeling totally empty and numb on the inside. I understand that grief can be very messy and that it looks different for every person. My desire is to support you and help you journey through your loss in a way that fits for you. I will also seek to gently guide you through the necessary steps of grief in order for you to experience relief, peace and emotional well being. There's a quote, I'm not sure who said it but it applies well, "I will help you keep on living until you feel alive again!"

Grief and loss are parts of life, and yet, everyone grieves in their own way. Grief can be complicated by other conditions, most notably depression. The person’s level of dependency on the departed can also cause complications. The grieving process often involves many difficult and complicated emotions. Yet joy, contentment, and humour do not have to be a lost memory. I work with you to help you recover from grief and loss and find your way back to feeling joyful again.
