Although therapy cannot help you replace who/what has been lost, it can help you come to accept the reality of the loss, to be able to look backwards and remember the good, and to be able to look forward with hope. Grief and loss therapy can be helpful for those who have lost a loved one, are going through a separation or divorce, lost a job, experienced an injury, received a medical diagnosis, or recently experienced a disappointment.

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.

Have you found yourself in deep sadness from a recent loss or that may be many years old and perhaps you are only recently recognizing? People were designed to reach out to someone when they are grieving and have had a loss. Unfortunately in our modern world, we are expected to be brief about our losses, to shrug them off and move on. You don't have to suffer alone. I will support you to more fully allow yourself to experience this loss and sadness in safety so that you can truly process the pain. Please contact me for help.

Grief is when your love has lost its place to land. When you lose a loved one that love can become toxic for you as the struggle to move through the stages of grief. Support during such a time is what we need rather than isolation. There may be times when we need to be alone but we are community creatures and need to belong, especially when we experience such things as the death of someone close to us.

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind. It involves conflicting feelings caused by the end of, or change in, a familiar pattern of behaviour. It is the feeling of reaching out for someone who has always been there, they are no longer there. The grief journey is so individual and unique, so our work with people who need loss support is also specific to our clients' needs. We help people properly diagnose their difficulties and help them make sense of their conflicting emotions so that they can move through life with more peace and certainty.

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.

Grief is an intensely personal experience, and it is never the same for any two people; even two people grieving the same loss. Some abide by the commonly known Stages of Grief, while those stages are recognizable, I believe the process is not linear, and any stage can be experienced at any time. Completely accepting people wherever they are in the grieving process prevents the expectation of a grieving in a certain order. My approach is to show compassion, emphasize self-care, and to provide a safe place and plenty of opportunity for self-expression. The creation of memory/legacy pieces in the form of songs, poems, and/or visual arts is an option when appropriate.

Experiencing grief and loss is part of the human condition. The loss of a loved one, or a pet, or a painful life event are all some of the most difficult things we will go through. I have worked as a therapist and counsellor for close to 30 years, and not everyone goes through the 'five stages of grief' in the same way - or in the same order. You will find your own way through grief and loss, with empathetic guidance and therapy from me, as you learn to release the pain.

There is no love without loss. And we can't move on until we grieve. It is a healthy rite of passage. I will work with you through the 5 Stages of Grief and the terrible feelings of loss. Although the past can't die, and the future can't live, we will focus on a healthy present. I will help you learn how to manage grief rather than permit it to manage you.

In my practice you will find a safe place to talk about and work through pain, and the feelings of sadness, confusion, guilt, shame and anger that often accompany the experience of grief and loss. Moving through grief and loss is your personal journey that takes time and is experienced uniquely from your own perspective. I provide therapy, counselling and and support for people who have lost a loved one such as a family member, friend or colleague whether through death or the ending of a relationship, those who have lost an important pet or animal companion or people who have experienced a loss that includes a loss of a job or personal identity.

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.
