Grief is a normal response to loss. It’s the emotional pain you feel when something or someone you care about is no longer present in your life. Sometimes, the pain of loss can feel devastating. You may feel different types of sudden emotions, such as disbelief, anger, responsibility, shock, and deep sadness. There is also another phase of grief which is accepting and moving forward with life and I can support you through that process.

As a person who has navigated many of life's challenges, I understand the struggle of grief and loss both as a person with lived experience and a professional. My experience in safe emotion release work (Psychodramatic Bodywork) can assist with helping to address the deep feelings related to this topic. Grief and loss are deeply personal experiences, and there is no one way to cope or navigate the experiences. Lets work together during this difficult time.

Together we explore the context of your grief, the meaning it has to you and the process of grief. Loss is not only about the death of life, but it also includes change and absence. Sometimes, our dreams or expectations seem lost and we grieve the reality we know longer see for ourselves. I explore all types of grief with my clients and we come to understand the impact of your loss on your life.

Grief can occur in many ways. Fundamentally it is a loss of something or someone important to our lives. The loss leaves a void behind. Moving through grief and healing from it is a process that occurs over time. Sometimes it helps to go through this with someone beside you. If you feel the need for a companion on this journey who may have some ideas that could help your grief process, please reach out.

Grieving and Loss are life and living issues that are part of the normal challenges we face in our lifetime. The often irrational and overwhelming thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with them can sometimes frighten and even paralyze us when they occur. In a supportive and empathic environment I help people demystify and understand these challenges and events so they can cope again.

Individual therapy is focused on your unique needs and goals. Individual therapy includes learning about your history and life experiences then establishing goals to accomplish in counselling. Our histories are the roots that provide us with a foundation of strength and resilience. But, our histories can also hold the stories that cause pain, insecurity and doubt. It is our belief that the best therapy comes from helping to heal the roots that cause those stuck points. Through this we can create lasting change.

Grief and loss are inevitable and an inescapable part of life. Grief can of course include the loss of someone to death, but it can also be ambiguous. Ambiguous loss can include the loss of relationships, family connections, our identities, our careers, or even who we were pre-pandemic? Grief around post-traumatic events or grieving the loss of a childhood you never had are also types of losses and grief that I can help you with.

Grief is a natural part of life that can take many forms, such as the loss of a loved one, a relationship break-up, loss of a job or an unexpected change. While the experience of grief can be very painful, complex and sometimes debilitating, it isn’t a process you have to go through alone. Together, let’s explore its facets, draw upon your current inner resources and resilience, add to your skills, and learn to reengage with life in a meaningful way.

Rather than drive our grief and loss underground or deep into our unconscious, therapy allows us to focus on the pain of our loss with all its multiple layers. Processing our thoughts with the spoken word rather than keeping them as mere mental reflections permits us to actively embrace our pain. We experience clarity and eventually direction to our grieving process. We can in time come to a place of sorrowful acceptance. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross gives us understanding of the grief and loss process in her Five Stages of Grief. However, it is important to note that these stages are not linear in their progression and are somewhat unique to each individual.
