Grief can be experienced through loss of a loved one from death, the ending of a relationship or even loss of a job. It is important to understand that grief isn't linear but we experience it in waves that ebb and flow and can feel, at times, exhausting and overwhelming. As a counsellor trained in art therapy and psychodrama techniques, I use these modalities to help you accept and experience your grief without letting it overwhelm your life.

My approach regarding grief and loss, is to help individuals identify various losses, and to note patterns of grief response, both helpful and otherwise. The goal of therapy then is to turn grief (inward experience) into mourning (meaningful expression of the loss). For some this is talking about the loss, for others it involves writing a letter, still others painting a picture. Rather than focusing on right or wrong ways to mourn, the focus is on helpful therapeutic ways to turn grief into mourning in order that the experience of healing begins and is maintained.

As a paramedic, I have witnessed the devastating effect that grief may have on a person. It does not matter what form the loss may take, grief is real, can be long lasting and can be disorienting. As a therapist, I use therapies that will assist you to process this loss and the disruption it may have caused in your life. No grief process is the same, your grief is as unique as you are, I honour that process.

Grief brings the hardest combination of all feelings - despair, anger, fear and love. It can right leave us with unmanagable pain, feeling disoriented and questioning everything. Sometimes it feels too painful to step back into the world that dares to carry on as if nothing happened. Sometimes we need someone to remind us that it is a place we are passing through and not a destination. We offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. We work with you find ways to make sense of you loss, learn to manage your feelings in new ways and find your way back into life again.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

There are many reasons in life to feel grief. Often people are not aware that there are many issues that cause grief. Naturally there is death, but there is also divorce, finishing school, relationship issues, aging, things that were and things that were not, to mention a few. Identifying the reason for grief and validation of the reality of the loss goes a long way to help the healing process.

We all experience grief and loss--its a part of life. We lose friends, family pets. There is a difference between grief and mourning. The one you celebrate the life the person or pet had and in time you move on. The other can become a constant companion in that you fear if you stop grieving that you will forget the person or that you are saying they weren't really important. However that is not true. Healthy mourning is good--and you move on with life as your lost person/pet want you to do.

"it's time to move on!" A person grieving personal loss, of a person or a relationship, hears this frequently in this fast-moving world of ours. Together we take time to look at your loss, and we celebrate what this person added to your life. We develop healthy strategies to bridge the transition. What you lost will always be with you - and you decide the "how".

Grief and loss can be overwhelming for people. Having someone to share their story with can help make the journey a little easier. Therapy can help lower feelings of isolation for clients. I help clients come to understand that grief doesn't just go away once the funeral is over, or the situation is over ( such as separation of spouses). Grief takes time. I provide a listening ear, compassion, and respect for how each person grieves. Art making can often be very helpful for clients moving through grief. It can provide them with an outlet for their emotions, and a way to express feelings that are sometimes hard to put into words.

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

Grief can be all encompassing and my goal is to work with you to gain strategies to support you through this difficult time.

Grief is a complex painful reaction to the loss of someone who has died or something that has ended; maybe a loved one, a pet, a relationship or a job. Loss can create fear and bring change which is stressful. The effects of loss can be felt emotionally, physically, cognitively, socially, behaviourally as well as spiritually. Grieving is not a linear process but allowing yourself to grieve and process emotions, you will begin to heal.
