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.

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.

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 is usually associated with the loss of a loved one. However, other situations can also cause grief such as the loss of a job, relationship or health. Everyone grieves in a different way and in their own time. Grief is a process and through this process you may experience feelings of shock, anger, blame, guilt, and sadness. There is no specific order to feel these in and these feelings may come and go. In counselling I can help you cope with these emotions.

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.

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 emotional pain.

The pain of losing a loved one, a relationship, or even an aspect of yourself (such as the loss of good health, a home, or even a career) can be devastating. In society we like to stay that “time heals” these losses but in reality it is what we do with the time that supports healing and letting go. The grieving process is complicated and painful. You don’t have to go through it alone. If you need support in this area I can help you through this process. You are not alone.
