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.

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'.

Grieving the loss of someone or something special in your life can be painful, confusing, and overwhelming. I believe that with support, we can begin to integrate the loss into our life experience. My experience with grief primarily relates to children and youth who have experienced traumatic loss. My therapeutic philosophy is holistic in nature; holding the belief that grief affects us physically, relationally, cognitively, emotionally and spiritually. It is my intention to support you or your children to safely express your feelings, and gently begin the process of integrating the loss into your life's experience, in a manner that is safe and non-pathologizing.

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.

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 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.

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 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.
