Losing a partner, a parent or even a job causes us to go through a period of grieving and adjustment. I will walk alongside you through this process and help you to move towards a positive future. Using compassion and experience I will assist you in developing tools for your future life, and also explore your new life and what it will mean for you.

Whenever you lose someone or something valuable, it is completely normal to experience a variety of feelings, sometimes very intense, including numbness and shock, anger and guilt, and sadness and depression. Everyone experiences grief in their own way, and these feelings can become more difficult if family and friends don't understand our own personal experience of grief. Inevitably everyone else moves on more quickly than the person in grief. Having experienced my own loss of a child, I understand my own journey of grief, and can help you work through your own feelings to find a new normal that memorializes your loss, makes sense of your story, and works for you.

I have personally suffered a great loss in my life, as a result, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to work with clients who have also suffered similar tragedies. Textbook grief therapy is not enough. My experience has helped me formulate a deep understanding of the particular fears, sadness, and problems one faces while dealing with a profound loss.

Feelings of grief or loss account for a great deal of sadness experienced by people, including loss of a loved one due to death, loss of a relationship that has ended, loss of a dream of what might have been, loss of something that you have relied on for a long time. I help my clients see that the process for dealing with this is similar to loss through death and that each person has their own way and timeline for grieving. I help my client chose healthier ways of coping and to be compassionate about their individual process.

There are many forms of loss we encounter in life - relationships, places, work, meaningful engagements, roles at work or at home, etc. The deeper any of these mean to us, the harder it can be to process the loss. I offer a place to sit with loss, to explore what's going on with it, to learn what's normal & what to expect in this type of journey. Grief has it's own schedule, it's important to honour this, and to grieve well.

Grief is a normal and natural reaction to loss of any kind, so the feelings you are having are normal and natural for you. We can work through your grieving process when you lose a beloved pet, when you move and are trying to begin again in a new place, when someone you love dies, when your health is threatened, when you retire or face an empty nest.

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 walk with my clients in their journey of grieving, through their difficult time as they try to understand their loss and their feelings. I offer them a safe space and time to understand their feelings for their losses. There are many other kinds of losses in our lives. We may lose our loved ones, our health, our physical mobility, our relationships with others, our dreams or our jobs. These are losses which we may not realize that we need to grieve. We may feel that something is not quite right.

It’s never easy to deal with loss, regardless of what the loss may be. Loss represents an ending of something. With this starts the grieving process, and for some, the grieving could be delayed, leaving the person feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you move forward more quickly from these losses and support you in healing. My goal is to provide you with strategies for healing from grief and loss, while allowing you to speak openly about your memories.

No one needs to feel isolated or alone when coping with loss. The death of a love one changes our lives forever. The end of a relationship, job loss, retirement, can leave us feeling saddened, overwhelmed or changed as well. Finding your way through loss, transitioning to healing, hope and new purpose in life may seem like an endless journey. Grief counseling and an understanding professional can help. During this difficult time, Christine works alongside you to provide support, encouragement and compassion.

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

We live in a mortal imperfect world and the grief process is about let go of the pain and remembering the person and allowing them to continue on in you. My approach is to set up time everyday to deal with the grief and balance that sadness with routine to help slowly overcome the pain. In the case of loss the process is much the same but we work on learning from the emotion around the relationship/job and preparing ourselves to move forward.
