My approach to treating your grief reaction is to help you get through a mourning process with support, understanding and ventilation. It is important for you to re-establish interest and relationships which are meaningful to you and can substitute for your loss. I will help you discuss the loss in detail by discussing the sequence of prior events to, during and after the death of your loved one so that you can sort out all your emerging feelings and build a clearer picture of your relationship with the person lost which includes their good and bad points.You will benefit by getting some distance and with patience and understanding you can move on with your life.

Feelings of grief or loss account for a great deal of sadness experienced by people, including loss of a loved one due to death, loss of a relationship that has ended, loss of a dream of what might have been, loss of something that you have relied on for a long time. I help my clients see that the process for dealing with this is similar to loss through death and that each person has their own way and timeline for grieving. I help my client chose healthier ways of coping and to be compassionate about their individual process.

Children can sense where there is sadness in their home, but they are young to don’t understand the death per se or its finality. For this reason, the way they process loss may be slightly different in the ways adults do. They may experience physical reactions, such as stomach aches, changes in sleeping patterns and appetite. Children may find it difficult to independently come to terms with the death and their feelings as their capacity to understand this concept is limited. A client-centred approach is used to provide children with healthy ways to learn to cope with their grief. The approaches used include, Play therapy, Sand Tray, Narrative Therapy, and Art Therapy.

Grief can result not just from loss of a loved one, but from the inability to realize a goal or dream. I work collaboratively with my clients to overcome perceived or actual barriers to their goals that we can address. When a goal cannot be realized, I help my clients with changing their expectations, perspectives and, ultimately, with acceptance.

My approach to grief and loss is based on the understanding that there is no one way to grieve a loss and that loss might be defined differently by each individual. My work with grief and loss is focused on providing a safe and supportive environment for you to explore, express and create meaning of your loss, at a pace that is right for you. Grief does not go away by ignoring it, so reach for and accept the support you need.

When one finds they are in debilitating grief the pain can override signals to try and be gentle with one self. This is a sign that your whole system is in shock adjusting to a new felt absence whether it is insight, loss of a close family member or friend or way of living that will not return. What can be frightening is that one is caught clearly remembering what was and feeling as if the past must be hiding but not gone. This is while trying to be present and cope with your daily challenges. Along with allowing you to be able to talk freely about your pain I use energy psychology exercises to help you cope with difficult emotions and guided imagery to help you find hope to imagine your future.

A child or adolescent who is grieving sometimes requires more support than a parent or caregiver can provide. It can be even more difficult when that caregiver is grieving, too. I provide a nurturing environment where your child will feel safe and secure. This will help your child to express his feelings and thoughts without judgement. Grief can take many forms and be expressed in different ways. I will help your child transform their grief through play and expressive arts therapy. I may also use a cognitive behavioural approach or narrative approach. The approach will be tailored to the needs of your child or adolescent.

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.

Any life will, at times, include pain. So it is understandable that at some time any of us will have to struggle to deal with loss. You can find a strength within you to pull you through this. As your therapist my commitment is to honor that wisdom and help you find even more. Yes, loneliness and isolation can come as we go through life. My experience has been that as any of us are heard in depth, we can listen beyond the pain for the inspiration we seek to move on. In contrast to how it may seem, we can actually grow through grief and loss. Similar to exercise, one’s personal balance and overall perspective on life is like a muscle - one that we can train to help us more as we progress.

Dealing with grief requires addressing the many layers of life that grief touches. Facing the loss of a loved one can also bring up reminders of other losses we have experienced - some of which may still feel unresolved, and are now coming to the surface along with the acute pain that the current situation brings. Since grief is ultimately about loss of connection, my approach involves finding unique ways of "reconnecting" and healing the wounds that can be left behind when a painful loss has been experienced. I provide a safe and compassionate environment to assist in healing through grief and understanding all aspects of the grieving process as it evolves.

My gentle, compassionate approach centres on offering practical and spiritual support to clients going through a grieving process, depending on the client’s particular needs and preferences. I find it is helpful and empowering for clients to understand the origins of the grief response so they’re better able to recognize and normalize it and support themselves as it arises, thus facilitating the healing process. In grief counselling, I draw from Nancy Reeves’ Energy Model as well as literature by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, and grief is a natural part of the healing process. The reasons for grief are many for example: the loss of a love one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream, the lost of a job, the lost of financial security or lost of physical ability. I understand your pain, these feelings, and only you know what is significant to you. Let me help you through this journey. I am a good listener. I will help you to break your isolation and loneliness, gain fresh knowledge, perspectives and then take action.

It is hard to believe the grief and anguish we suffer through grief and loss until you are experiencing it. Many well-wishers want to "get over it" and "move on." This truly is the time to have someone hold an empathic and sacred space for you to explore your grief with no judgments. Energy modalities help the process, they will not dissolve appropriate grief. They will help us gain a new perspective.
