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.

There is a natural process of grieving but sometimes, for various reasons we become 'stuck' and lost in the midst of the grief and losses we have experienced. Grief and loss occur not just when we have lost someone through death. There are so many losses: the loss of a marriage, the loss of a deep friendship, the loss of a job or even the loss of a long held dream or hope among so many others. It is possible to find hope and way to move forward in the midst of these losses. I will walk alongside you and help you to find new ways to move forward.

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.

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.

Many things that make our lives feel rich and meaningful are the result of connection. Connection with others, with ourselves, or with a sense of identity or purpose. When this connection is lost, we can experience confusion, a sense of failure, deep pain and even despair. At times, it can be most helpful to hold space to process the thoughts, feelings and meaning that come as a result of the loss we’ve experienced. By engaging in this process, we can acknowledge the impact of loss and cultivate purpose and meaning to move forward. Schedule a free consultation with me to see if we are a good fit.

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 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 a highly individual process and is often experienced differently by different people. You may be seeking counselling as you are struggling with a recent loss or because your sense of grief has become overwhelming to you. Grief involves adaption to the loss and this takes time and compassion and self compassion. Whether loss is gradual, sudden, anticipated, imposed, death or non death related, psychotherapy provides the opportunity to explore ones emotional, cognitive or physical reactions to loss and gain perspective and/or meaning.
