Clients will have a safe place to share their feelings and explore ways to move through the pain of their loss in order to re-engage in life again. Joy is possible again after loss. It is difficult to conceive of this possibility after a significant loss. Many get caught in a depression and are unsure of how to move through the significant emotions of sadness, anger, frustration and the strong desire to disengage from life. Counselling can help people move through these emotions and to grab hold of life in a positive way again.

If you have recently lost a loved one, first, I want to express my condolences. The death of a loved one or the loss of a significant relationship is the most stressful event we can experience. I can offer you support and practical strategies to navigate through the process of healing, help you adjust emotionally, and help you develop sound and lasting coping skills that will allow you to progress forward at your pace. I also provide therapeutic support for those who anticipate the loss of a loved one.

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.

With Gestalt therapy the five tasks of mourning, are supported: (1) To accept the reality of the loss, (2) To experience the pain of grief, (3) To adjust to the environment in which the deceased is missing, (4) To withdraw (some) emotional energy and reinvest it in another relationship, and (5) To find a place for and maintain a continuing bond with what we lose, however not in any specific order. A gestalt therapist supports the bereaved with an emphasis on a "loving authentic presence and communication that allows expression of EACH other’s personhood" so that feelings are honored and explored at the clients own pace. The here and now is emphasized and that is what leads to support/change
