Groan! – How profoundly disquieting is the presence of an absence! Grief is a complex emotional response to the experience of loss. It can be a manageable response to natural life changes, or it can be a debilitating experience when a significant loss event occurs – such as a serious illness or a death. As a grief recovery specialist I can accompany you through a delicate process that begins with a loss/trauma history assessment followed by a recovery treatment plan. Together we can formulate an emotional regulation stabilization strategy, identify effective coping skills, construct completion letters and identify available resources to support you until wellness is restored.

Grief and loss are a natural part of the human journey and how each of us process our grief experiences is unique. There is no “one way” for people to grieve. Grief can affect us mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Regardless of our age or stage in life, the loss of someone we love is devastating, confusing, debilitating, and can be all consuming. Seeking support with your grief is an important step on your journey from hurt to hope. Rather than denying your grief is there, learn ways to cope and live with the grief as a part of your life.

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.

Loss and grief are devastating. Sudden loss is a shock. Long, drawn-out loss is exhausting. Loss changes our expectations of daily life. It brings disbelief, despair, anger. Divorce, a wayward child, a job layoff, poor health – all disrupt our expectations of how our life should be. Then there is the pain of death's finality. To stop hurting can feel like a betrayal of the one we lost. The grief is terrible, but it is all we have of the loved one. We finally need to realize that we cannot go on living in constant pain. We need other ways to fill the emptiness, new routines, new roles, and new interactions. We need to redirect our energy. Counselling helps you to find the road ahead.

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 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.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L2E 1Y3 - Nearby to Thorold.

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

Life involves change and loss. Acceptance, understanding self, and adjusting are difficult passages to endure and grow through. Recognizing that we all experience life differently, and that is ok, is at the core of all my therapy. Many of us can feel 'stuck' from time to time in our life journey. This can translate into confounding and frustrating stages of functioning which may trigger difficulty in present and future relationships- to self, others, and even our basic belief systems.

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.
