Experiencing a significant loss can have a dramatic impact on how we cope and feel. Grief is not a sign of weakness, it is a normal and natural emotional reaction to loss or change of any kind. The passing of a loved one, divorce, loss of job, are all experiences that can cause grief. Even positive change can create a sense of loss about the situation we are leaving. We all experience grief uniquely and in our own time. Some people don't allow themselves to grieve fully and this can lead to more suffering. Working with a therapist can help you through your pain and awaken compassion and acceptance in your heart.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

In L0B 1A0 - Nearby to Scugog.

If you have lost someone close to you through death, relocation or the end of a relationship, and feel isolated and lonely, it takes time and support to gently move forward in life. If you are shy or feel anxiety in social situations it can be hard to reach out for help and create the supportive relationships you need. I can help you move forward, gain a new sense of self worth, and begin to create meaningful nurturing social connections.

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.

My empathetic approach enables me to form a connection with the client seeking recovery from grief. Through patient listening, I am able to create a safe place in therapy for the client, where they can share, question the value of their experiences, or seek reassurance about the future. As we continue in dialogue, the client processes the traumatic memories and builds the capacity to move forward within their new reality.

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.

In L1G 2V5 - Nearby to Scugog.

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.

Grief and loss are realistic, relevant, and important aspects of human life. However, we are not always given the tools or support to know how to grieve or let go effectively. So, it's often valuable to go through the process of grief and loss with a counsellor who can help. I use mindfulness-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and/or Cognitive Processing/Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to support the process.

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.

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.

When a person has experienced the loss of someone or something significant, it is not uncommon for them to experience overwhelming feelings of sadness, a sense of confusion or "being at a loss", as well as difficulty experiencing happiness and joy. At New Roots Therapy, we acknowledge that these feelings - as well as many others - may emerge for you as you move through your own experience of grief and loss. We believe that, in working with grief and loss, it is not just about "moving past" or "letting go". 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.

CLINICAL AND SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY DOCTOR

In L1N 8L9 - Nearby to Scugog.

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.

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.

Grief and Loss are experiences that all of us have throughout our lives. Sometimes by surprise, other times the result of one of the many significant life transitions that can lead us to despair and heartache. Such losses weigh heavy on the human heart and soul. Whether it be the death of a loved one, the departure of one once loved, a sudden illness or a change of life plan, you will feel nourished from the support I will provide to you. Working together, I will help you in the process of grieving and resolving the thoughts and feelings that such an experience can bring forth. It is important that you have the time needed to reflect and be able to move on, when the time is right for you.

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

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.
