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.

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.

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.

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.

Acceptance is the hardest part to get to when someone you care about dies. For everyone, the grieving process is very different and unique to them. I hold the 'space' for a person to talk about their feelings, to acknowledge the loss, the anger and the guilt that comes with death, and for them to feel their way into a new way of living. I offer rituals, ways to remember a loved one, and ways to accept their feelings and emotions.

We 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.

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.

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.

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.
