We have all experienced loss of some kind in our lives. Loss can cause grief that can shake our very core. At times, we become stuck in our grief and therefore life becomes dull, painful and void of meaningful connection. At PCCS we assist you to get unstuck. We don't expect you to stuff your feelings, instead it is important to acknowledge and work with them as a starting point in counselling. Our counsellors are highly experienced and have dealt with thousands of persons who have experienced profound loss.

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.

We will review your history and gain a perspective on the loss you are experiencing. we will define realistic expectations of how you are experiencing your loss together. Loss is a natural experience that often we place a lot of guilt and expectations beyond ourselves to "get over". Your loss is individual and you deserve to work through it in a way that fits for your needs- no one else's.

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.

Coping with the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet or job is a process that doesn't have to be undertaken alone. We can help you to honour your feelings and where you are at in your grieving, to take the time you need, to find ways of addressing the incidental responsibilities and worries that come with loss, to honour the importance of the loss through ritual, writing, art or other means, and to find ways of creating meaning and acceptance in order to move on. Complex grief, associated with trauma, can also be addressed, working through what's still being held in the body and exploring emotion regulation skills to help you face overwhelming pain with greater resiliency.

Each person’s grief is a unique and personal experience. Grief is not something that needs fixing, but through bearing witness to your emotions and pain, we can work together to help incorporate your grief into your life in a healthy and understanding way. Your grief journey is about where you are, and about how you feel, and cannot be about another’s agenda or timeline. Experiencing grief can be a very isolating path to walk. Let’s begin that walk together to bring some vibrance back into your life.

When I was 14 I experienced my first death. My grandpa was my favorite person in the world at the time. He used to sit beside me and play with my earlobe while we would talk about our day. I couldn't make sense of all the emotional issues that it brought. I have also experienced loss in my life that doesn't involve death, yet profoundly affected my life in negative and confusing ways. Grief & Loss can be pretty tricky and complex! The benefits to working with me is that I go above for all of my clients! One of my clients suffering with grief had not been to the burial site since the funeral. I drove them 2 hours so that we could journey together through something they were finally ready for.

You may be grieving the loss of a loved one or of a special relationship. These kinds of losses can shake us to the core as we try to navigate our new reality amidst such a variety of changing feelings and circumstances. Everyone grieves differently. When we can turn to supportive friends and family we can be supported immensely. Sometimes, though there are issues that we may choose to share privately with an unbiased professional. I will help you to ground yourself to better cope and to ensure difficult decisions are well thought out. I will help you to do your best to preserve your relationships and self care in this process. Let's help you to cope through this major life change.

During grief and loss, people can find themselves keeping a lot of strong emotions inside of themselves. I offer a comfortable and nonjudgemental space for people I work with to express their feelings and thoughts. I work with clients to gain a deeper understanding of grief and loss itself. Grief is an inevitable and universal experience. The longer we live, the more grief and loss we are exposed to. I acknowledge and validate the grief and loss that clients share with me and work with them to accept and overcome the challenges associated with them.

Having space and time to process normal feelings of grief and loss can lead to a healthy integration of the loss and reduce complications such as depression and anxiety associated with an interrupted grieving process. Providing a therapeutic relationship that allows sharing of the impact helps normalize the loss, increase acceptance and generate feelings of well being.

You are feeling lost and lonely, as the result of the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, or the loss of a part of yourself due to an accident or chronic illness. Grief robs us of what we had, leaving us to feel despair. While we cannot bring back what has been lost, we can work together to understand your grief, in order to help you feel more functional again.

Grief is the emotional suffering we feel when we lose something or someone important to us. This can include the loss of friend, partner, or family member, a change in life circumstances, death of a pet, getting fired, loss of health, safety, a dream... anything that we once had and now do not. The intensity and process can be unique for each person, but like all other emotions that impact the quality of our life, ignoring it or suppressing it does not work. Seeking support as we move through the various stages of grief is very helpful. Planning for our healing is crucial so that we do not become 'stuck' in the pain. A skilled therapist can assist us during this vulnerable time.

Losses come in different shapes and sizes. Grief can follow the experience of any major loss including the loss of an important relationship, loss of good health, loss of an important dream, loss of a pet, loss of a job (Etc). There is no right way to feel or experience loss. Grief and loss can be a profound and often debilitating experience that is unfortunately silenced (or) stigmatized in our Society. My office is a safe place where you will feel supported and respected as together we work through the grieving process. I offer 15 minute initial consults free of charge so you can decide if the services I provide would be a good match for your needs.

My intention is to hold a safe space where my clients feel supported through the whirl-wind of emotions and intense feelings that come up while dealing with grief and loss. Everyone’s journey is very personal and I want to help my clients honour what they need. I offer counselling before, during and after the death of a loved one as I feel having support at all of these stages can be helpful for healing. Grief and loss come in many other forms such as the loss of a job, pet, culture and lifestyle. All are valid and cause turmoil due to transition. I help to ease this turmoil by helping my clients help themselves come up with strategies to better cope.

In today's society, we are expected to "suck it up and move on" in situations related to loss. However, grief has a mind of its own. It shows up when we don't expect it. It comes back when we thought we've dealt with it. Trying to avoid it and numb it out only makes it stronger. Therapy can help you heal. Whether you have lost a loved one through death or a relationship ending, have gone through a difficult life transition or are grieving the loss of something else important to you, we will work together to practice ways to sit with, honour, transform and heal grief in a supportive, non-judgemental and compassionate space.

I believe there are many forms of grief and loss. We may be grieving the loss of a loved one, our dream of what home is, grief of the pain of the planet, ecosystems and species, loss of an inner sense of balance. One activity I love to share with people who are grieving is to be present with a river. I invite them to pay attention as the water flows downstream and to tune into what they are letting go of. Then I invite them to notice how there is water flowing toward them and ask what newness might be emerging within? Often people are surprised to discover that our loss is creating space for something new to arise.

Loss and the resulting horrible, debilitating grief is hard. There is just no way around the pain that assaults you. I wish I could 'fix it'... but the truth is no one can. However... what I can do is help you cope and recover and move through the healing process in the healthiest possible way. I can help you make sure you don't make it worse. It is very 'human' to sabotage what we say we want... and I can help you identify how you might sabotage your healing. It is so much better to do it with a skilled professional, than to blunder through it sad and alone.

You will be seen and supported and will be able to get to the depths of your grief instead of staying on the surface with it. Many times people cannot uncover the specifics of what the grief is about and this means letting the grief go can be very trying . It is important to be able to come to grips with this and not let this be an encumbrance in your life.
