Grief and loss are normal, universal emotional experiences, but there is a tendency to get stuck in depression or anxiety rather than feel the sadness involved with loss. That’s understandable, because suffering is painful and difficult to bear alone. A therapist can support an individual with strategies for finding hope that a broken heart will mend. The aim is to build trust that, by allowing the expression of these feelings, the energy spent on suffering can be freed and reinvested back into creating a fulfilling life. As you do with a broken shoulder, you pay attention to the pain and attend to it in healthy ways while nature takes its course, allowing broken bones or hearts to heal.

When you lose someone or something precious to you, it’s natural to experience pain and grief. The process of grief and bereavement is normal, and most people go through it. But when grief takes over your life and makes you feel hopeless, worthless and helpless, then it becomes important to talk to a counsellor about telling the difference between normal grief and depression. The Family Enhancement Centre has several therapists who specialize in Grief and Bereavement counselling. Contact us today to know how we can help you.

Grief is a natural and normal emotional response to physical and/or social loss. Anxiety, guilt, despair, sadness, sleeping problems, appetite changes, or illness can be common issues related to grief. Despite unique coping style for each individual, numbness, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance are common stages of grief. Counselling provides understanding and insight to those issues of grief.

I provide a confidential space to help you process the deeper layers of your experience in order to move forward with life. Going into these deeper layers may involve looking at your hopes and fears, as well as identifying and processing your mixed feelings. This type of exploration can lead to an increased sense of integration, well-being and possibilities for the future.

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.

Grief Counselling and Psychotherapy is aimed at helping you deal with feelings of sadness and emptiness, and to help you find closure. The thoughts and behaviours associated with grief can be very distressing. It is important to find different ways to cope during this difficult time, which will be the focus of counselling and psychotherapy sessions. In grief counselling, we work together to understand the grief or trauma you are experiencing, whether it be the loss of a loved one, parent-child separation, divorce, losing a job, or having to end a significant friendship or relationship in your life.

An experience of loss can be tangible such as termination from a job, death of a loved one, etc. It can also come during happy occasions, such as a wedding. While this is a celebrated occasion it can represent a loss for parents whose children move away, or a loss of singleness for the one marrying. While loss is often intangible, it can create intense grief. My work with loss and grief deals with the underlying emotions such as anger, sadness, denial, depression, hopelessness, etc. These emotions can often appear, resolve and re-appear at different times of life or during special occasions. Ultimately, acceptance and peace comes through the act of grieving which leads to reorganization.

Grief and loss affects each and every one of us - it is part of being human. However, our road to understanding grief and loss in each of our lives is unique. Part of my approach to grief and loss is to engaging in meaning-making to integrate your experiences into your developing self as you shift and evolve, growing from life. Another part of the work I do around grief and loss is working with you to create ways of honouring of the experience through personalized art and rituals, sometimes this is referred to as remembering practices.

Everyone will experience grief and loss at some point in their lives, whether it is being the loss of a loved person, the loss of a relationship, the loss of job or the loss of health. Grief is a natural and normal response to a loss, a process of healing, and it is a unique experience to each person. Grief cannot be rushed, cannot be fixed or cannot be be eliminated. Therapy may help you understand and process the often intense emotions or recurring thoughts that you may be experiencing including anger, depression, guilt, or bargaining. It may also help prevent a complicated grief where the person is stuck in an intense state of mourning that inhibits them from functioning on a daily basis.

Experiencing grief and loss is part of the human condition. The loss of a loved one, or a pet, or a painful life event are all some of the most difficult things we will go through. I have worked as a therapist and counsellor for close to 30 years, and not everyone goes through the 'five stages of grief' in the same way - or in the same order. You will find your own way through grief and loss, with empathetic guidance and therapy from me, as you learn to release the pain.
