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 and loss can be difficult to work through. Many individuals try to ignore or completely forget about the grief or loss altogether. This generally leads to more difficulties in their functioning. My approach helps clients come to an increased awareness about how this loss has impacted them and develop coping mechanisms using compassion and mindfulness that will diminish the negative impacts grief can have on our relationships, work and overall functioning.

Grief is a natural part of losing someone, a relationship or tragic event that is more than every day sadness. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Only your way. Some people get angry, some quiet and withdrawn, some walk around in a heavy fog for weeks or months. Multiple losses in a short time, loss of a parent or child, these key relationships trigger the grief process. Grief often involves bargaining, anger, denial, depression, mobilizing, testing, to reach acceptance. For over 20 years, I've helped clients with intense grief reactions, including survivors of suicide. It is important to get the support for your particular bereavement and rebuild your life again.

It takes great courage to experience grief and survive loss. I can teach you how to be present to your own vast, deep emotions in a way that allows your body to release and your spirit to expand and become more through loss. Through the most difficult experiences we discover our strength. We each have a unique path to discover. Learning to respect our own timing , we allow ourselves to stay long enough in our sadness to develop a relationship of respect and honoring that empowers us to move one when we are ready.

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.

We live in a culture that rarely discusses grief and the grieving process and as a result, people often struggle with trying to understand their feelings and why they aren't feeling better sooner. And then some deaths we experience are especially difficult - the loss of a spouse or a child, for example. Grief Therapy can help clients better understand the grieving process, validate their feelings, give them permission to grieve and help them in adapting to the loss of a loved one. Compassion and a safe space to grieve, helps us to heal from these kinds of wounds.

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.
