Grief is the emotional suffering we feel when we lose something or someone important to us. This can include the loss of friend, partner, or family member, a change in life circumstances, death of a pet, getting fired, loss of health, safety, a dream... anything that we once had and now do not. The intensity and process can be unique for each person, but like all other emotions that impact the quality of our life, ignoring it or suppressing it does not work. Seeking support as we move through the various stages of grief is very helpful. Planning for our healing is crucial so that we do not become 'stuck' in the pain. A skilled therapist can assist us during this vulnerable time.

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. I offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. I 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.

One of the most difficult experiences in life is to lose a loved one. Often times there is an emptiness that seems impossible to fill. The idea of moving on without our loved one seems scary and even impossible. My practice in Narrative Therapy enables people to reconnect with their loved ones, to honour their memory, and reflect on ways we can keep our loved ones close. Despite our loss we can keep our loved ones presence with us and learn to heal from the pain and emptiness that death often leaves us with.

Grief and loss are universal experiences for all people and they are perhaps some of the most painful events experienced. So painful, in fact, that many people try to avoid the feelings at all costs. I believe that the only way to learn to live with grief is to be willing to experience the feelings and I provide a safe and supported relationship in which to work through these feelings.

Grief and loss can be experienced in a multitude of ways. You may be grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a marriage, friendship, or relationship.

If only grief worked like that. I offer support and guidance while walking beside you through the stages of grief. You don’t have to suffer alone.

Grief is sorrow or mental suffering that is a result of a loss, affliction, regret, etc. Grief is a normal response to a loss or significant change. Talking to others about our grief allows us to heal quicker. Getting through our grief takes time. For some the bigger the loss the longer it takes to deal with our grief. In some cases a smaller loss could speed the grieving process and could take only a few hours, days or even weeks to get through it. For moderate loss the time could be months to a year and for severe loss the grieving could take much longer. At David James and Associates work with the individual and families to transition through their period of grief.
