At some point in your life you will experience a significant loss. Being able to cope with this loss is a truly personal expereince that hosts many emotions. Moving through the stages of grief and learning how to deal and cope with these emotions are symbolic to remembering the good things about that persons life. Clients will experience relief from emotional suffering, experience increased energy for life and feel more "positive" about life.

Grief and loss are responses to heart ache and trauma. I work with clients to facilitate the expression of their feelings through telling their story. This story telling may be verbal, writing or artistic creation. It may involve making amends or seeking forgiveness. The journey through grief can be difficult yet one that will bring closure and healing. Emotions are along a continuum and if one does not have the ability to experience pain it will be difficult to experience joy. Grief and loss work is life enhancing.

Registered Psychologist

We are social beings. When we suffer loss or grief, we benefit from talking with others about our feelings. Sometimes the purpose is simply to purge, to be listened to while in the depth of our pain. Other times we need to address the unhelpful - even harmful - things we tell ourselves while suffering grief and loss. Regardless, working through grief involves experiencing pain, and being patient with ourselves as well as the recovery process. I like to believe that clients have a safe place in me to engage it.

Our world is forever changed after experiencing a sudden and tragic loss. We may feel very vulnerable to the world around us. Everyday living can be an experience of heightened anxiety, loneliness and tears. We may even have strained relationships because the pain of loss is so overwhelming. Together, we can try to make sense of and to understand your loss. We can learn ways to control your emotions, find peace of mind and change your reactions of memories from sorrow to gratitude.

Grief and loss is part of life. Whether we loss someone we love through death or divorce, or lose our job it is a natural process of grieve that loss. Many times we approach loss by saying that we "want to get over" the death of our loved one, loss of job or health. We want things to get back to normal. The reality is that we need to find our way through mourning to the new normal in your life.

Registered Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

When working with grief and loss, I believe it is important to be patient and present. I primarily focus on the emotions and experiences of the grief and loss and make sure that they are being felt. Although this can be a painful process, it is important that we are allowing ourselves to move into the pain versus avoiding it so that all emotions, thoughts, and sensations are dealt with.

Grief & Loss

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

9690 182 Street, Edmonton, AB T5T 6M1

While grief is a natural part of life, it can be overwhelming to go through the multitude of feelings that accompany a loss. I believe that people grieve a number of events in life, from the death of a loved one, to the loss of important relationships, retirement, the "empty nest," or transitioning from one phase of life to another. I help those who are grieving to understand the process, and learn how to bear the feelings that rise up "like waves." I also work towards helping people to honour the positive aspects of what has been lost, and reach a place of acceptance, while adapting to a new way of living.

Clients can expect a client centered, supportive and informative understanding of what to expect regarding grief and loss issues as well as how to work through these issues through hands-on therapeutic techniques. I currently use some emotionally focused therapy techniques as well as models from three different grief cycles for grief issues which can include anything from death and loss of a loved one to giving up substances or breakup of a relationship.

Landor Liddell, M.Sc., Ph.D. (Education)

Grief is a psycho-spiritual process. In counselling, I will work through the stages of loss and grief: the crisis stage, the crucible stage, and the construction or rebuilding and re-____ stage. Based on these stages, I will help guide you through your loss in a compasionate and accepting manor. Grief is a journey, without clear direction, one that must be taken.

Debbie Grove, Ph.D., R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

10339 - 106 Street NW, Suite 3, Edmonton, AB T5J 1H8

Loss and grief come in many forms. Grieving is a personal experience. I have worked with clients experiencing loss of a loved one including a pet companion, loss of functioning/mobility, employment loss including retirement, and relocation/joining a new country. My approach integrates compassion, hope, renewal, and ways to integrate the loss. In my work and research in this area, moving forward from loss combines honouring the past while actively finding new ways to engage in the present.

Grief counselling is a form of counselling that aims to help people cope with grief, & mourning following the death of a loved one, or with major life changes that trigger feelings of grief such as loss of a job, relationship or even a family pet. Everyone experiences and expresses grief in thier own way, which is often shaped by how their family or their own culture honors the process. The grief process has many faces and stages where one can experience a wide range of emotions and behavior associated with grief. A grief counsellor will facilitate expression of emotion and thought about the loss including sadness, anxiety, disbelief, loneliness, guilt, anger, confusion, or lack of feeling.
