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.

I define grieving as: "Your body is healing an emotional break and/or bruise". A loss of any type will create emotional bruising or an emotional break - such as the loss of a loved one. Grieving is a normal emotional healing process. Our emotions will heal, just as a broken leg will heal. However, we are to nurse the bruise/break properly, otherwise the emotional body can not heal itself. I will help you develop a healthy emotional wound care system. I provide a safe place for you to vent your feelings. Venting feelings or I like to call it "washing your emotional wound" is the first step. Then I teach the emotional nursing steps which will guide and support the healing process.

Everyone experiences grief and loss throughout the lifetime. This can be a very painful experience. You will learn about different stages of grief and how to move on from all these stages. Everyone grieves differently and you will understand yourself more and find your inner strengths to grieve in a less painful way through a supportive, empathic and non-judgemental therapeutic environment. You don't have to be alone in this grieving journey!

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.

Grief Counsellor

Ron Wyse, RP, RMFT; DD, ThM, MDiv, BA

Registered Psychotherapist; Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

1 Valleywood Drive, Markham, Ontario

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

10211 Yonge Street, Ste. 206, Richmond Hill, Ontario

Having practiced for 20 years, and spent 6 years in a Trauma Centre in Ontario, I have gained a great deal of experience in working with Grief & Loss. The griefwork I have done has been with adolescents, adults and families. I allow my clients to work through their traumatic issues, loss, and grief in a compassionate, gentle, safe manner while assisting them to achieve greater relief from pain over time.

Grief Counsellor

Angela Colangelo, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

Markham Road/Hwy 48, Markham, Ontario

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.

Grief Counsellor

Nidhi Gupta, R.I.H.R, Dip. BSc (Hons), RPc

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

600B Magnetic Drive, North York, Ontario

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.

Grief Counsellor

Winnie Lai, MDiv., RP, RMFT.

Registered Psychotherapist

15 Allstate Parkway , Suite 600, Markham, Ontario

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.

Grief Counsellor

Registered Psychologist

9889 Markham Rd. (Hwy 48), Unit 211, Markham, Ontario

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.

Grief Counsellor

Kimberley Cochrane, MA, RP, dipTIRP, CEC, CAPT

Registered Psychotherapist (RP) - Integrative, Relational Somatic Therapist for Individuals & Couples

6633 Highway #7 (at Ninth Line), Markham, Ontario

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.
