"Grief is neither a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith. It's the price we pay for love." Darcie Sims. Feeling sad following a loss is a natural and normal response. We have often been taught through our lives that something is wrong with us if we can't "suck it up," or can't seem to "get over it." Perhaps some of our ideas about the process of grief aren't helpful in moving us towards healing? What have you learned about grief? Naomi is here to help you understand your grief in a way that will move you forward in life and be more compassionate and comfortable with your own pain, to eventually arrive in a place of peace.

Grief and loss are normal, universal emotional experiences, but there is a tendency to get stuck in depression or anxiety rather than feel the sadness involved with loss. That’s understandable, because suffering is painful and difficult to bear alone. A therapist can support an individual with strategies for finding hope that a broken heart will mend. The aim is to build trust that, by allowing the expression of these feelings, the energy spent on suffering can be freed and reinvested back into creating a fulfilling life. As you do with a broken shoulder, you pay attention to the pain and attend to it in healthy ways while nature takes its course, allowing broken bones or hearts to heal.

When it comes to grief and loss, I meet my clients where that are at in their grieving process. I simply create a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for my clients and myself to be in-the-moment with their grieving and loss process. What ever needs to be dealt with and or managed, will come into their awareness to be explored, felt and processed in the clients own unique way. I will also help my clients map out the best way towards getting their lives back on track so that they feel they are in the drivers seat again.
