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.

There is a natural process of grieving but sometimes, for various reasons we become 'stuck' and lost in the midst of the grief and losses we have experienced. Grief and loss occur not just when we have lost someone through death. There are so many losses: the loss of a marriage, the loss of a deep friendship, the loss of a job or even the loss of a long held dream or hope among so many others. It is possible to find hope and way to move forward in the midst of these losses. I will walk alongside you and help you to find new ways to move forward.

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.

Often the loss of a loved one, pet, item, or aspect of a person can lead to intense feelings of grief. At times when the loss is surrounded by traumatic events this grief becomes complicated. Clients will often find that reprocessing these traumatic moments that led to the loss will help them be able to cope with any feelings that come up. They may find that their memories are no longer haunted by feelings of anxiety, extreme sadness, or loss of hope.

It’s never easy to deal with loss, regardless of what the loss may be. Loss represents an ending of something. With this starts the grieving process, and for some, the grieving could be delayed, leaving the person feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you move forward more quickly from these losses and support you in healing. My goal is to provide you with strategies for healing from grief and loss, while allowing you to speak openly about your memories.

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.

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.
