I define grieving as: "Your body is healing an emotional break and/or bruise". A loss of any type will create emotional bruising or an emotional break - such as the loss of a loved one. Grieving is a normal emotional healing process. Our emotions will heal, just as a broken leg will heal. However, we are to nurse the bruise/break properly, otherwise the emotional body can not heal itself. I will help you develop a healthy emotional wound care system. I provide a safe place for you to vent your feelings. Venting feelings or I like to call it "washing your emotional wound" is the first step. Then I teach the emotional nursing steps which will guide and support the healing process.

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.

Rather, our hope is to honour the uniqueness of your experience and to help you connect your feelings of grief to the importance of the lost relationship on your life.

In L9P 0A1 - Nearby to Port Perry.

We live in a mortal imperfect world and the grief process is about let go of the pain and remembering the person and allowing them to continue on in you. My approach is to set up time everyday to deal with the grief and balance that sadness with routine to help slowly overcome the pain. In the case of loss the process is much the same but we work on learning from the emotion around the relationship/job and preparing ourselves to move forward.

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.

In L1C 4P8 - Nearby to Port Perry.

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.

CLINICAL AND SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY DOCTOR

In L1N 8L9 - Nearby to Port Perry.

Dr. Smith became a psychologist as a direct result of a traumatic loss when his brother Donald was killed by a train when Donald was l2 and Dr. Smith was a little boy. This loss caused Dr. Smith to be paralyzed with grief for several years. Dr. Smith is a recovered grief survivor because of his willingness to get professional help and training. No one should have to do this job alone. Lack of recovery from grief results in severe physical and emotional problems, including marital dysfunction, substance abuse, accidents, failure at work, relationships problems and unhappiness.

Have you found yourself in deep sadness from a recent loss or that may be many years old and perhaps you are only recently recognizing? People were designed to reach out to someone when they are grieving and have had a loss. Unfortunately in our modern world, we are expected to be brief about our losses, to shrug them off and move on. You don't have to suffer alone. I will support you to more fully allow yourself to experience this loss and sadness in safety so that you can truly process the pain. Please contact me for help.

Feelings of grief or loss account for a great deal of sadness experienced by people, including loss of a loved one due to death, loss of a relationship that has ended, loss of a dream of what might have been, loss of something that you have relied on for a long time. I help my clients see that the process for dealing with this is similar to loss through death and that each person has their own way and timeline for grieving. I help my client chose healthier ways of coping and to be compassionate about their individual process.

Feeling grief and loss is unique to each person, but it is felt more or less as a form of depression. Grief and loss is felt not just from the death of a loved one, but also from divorce and relationship losses. I find that clients often begin to feel isolated in their grief, relationships become affected, and moving through daily activities can feel overwhelming. As a Specialist in Depression, I help my clients move through the stages of loss, and I help them to feel pleasure and hope in their daily lives, rebuilding self-esteem and self-worth. I offer kindness and support, and my clients often comment that they "feel lighter" and "hopeful" after each session.

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.

Drawing upon the work of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross ("On Death & Dying" and "On Grief and Grieving"), I support people in their grieving journey, assessing the challenges and also the strengths each person has to most effectively adjust to loss and develop effective coping strategies. Ultimately, finding ways to carry this loss and grief in the most graceful way possible is the goal to be attained. Courage and faith along with a growing spiritual understanding and openness contribute greatly to the success of this work.

No one needs to feel isolated or alone when coping with loss. The death of a love one changes our lives forever. The end of a relationship, job loss, retirement, can leave us feeling saddened, overwhelmed or changed as well. Finding your way through loss, transitioning to healing, hope and new purpose in life may seem like an endless journey. Grief counseling and an understanding professional can help. During this difficult time, Christine works alongside you to provide support, encouragement and compassion.
