Registered Psychotherapist, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

3250 Bloor Street West, Etobicoke, Ontario

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.

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.

Grief brings the hardest combination of all feelings - despair, anger, fear and love. It can right leave us with unmanagable pain, feeling disoriented and questioning everything. Sometimes it feels too painful to step back into the world that dares to carry on as if nothing happened. Sometimes we need someone to remind us that it is a place we are passing through and not a destination. I offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. I work with you find ways to make sense of you loss, learn to manage your feelings in new ways and find your way back into life again.

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.

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.

Every person's grief and loss is unique. I will work with you to process that unique experience through discussion in sessions, and exercises that I will give you to process your thoughts and feelings. These exercises wll be specific to your loss. We will also embrace the healing power of time, and the notion of radical acceptance of what cannot be changed.

Grief Counsellor

Nancy Webb, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

Academy Heath Centre, 4984 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke, Ontario

Grief is not something that goes away in a few months. I have often heard clients feel guilty because they are still grieving months after their loved one has died. Actually to not honour Grief and the time it takes is to throw people into complicated grief. ' If I am grieving and allowed to grief I will in fact be able to deal with life and life's demands more more fully than if I am denied the opportunity to truly grieve'.

Grief Counsellor

Anna Marson, M.A., RP, CCC, Heartfulness Psychotherapy

Psychotherapist

2275 Lake Shore Blvd. W., Etobicoke, Ontario

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.

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.

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.
