Grief & Loss

I have a depth of knowledge and I respond to grief and loss in a broad and holistic way (not just death & dying but other kinds of losses too). I have worked with all ages, with individuals as well as groups. I respond with compassion and demonstrate understanding about the multilayers of the grieving experience. Much of my work then involves helping people with mourning & I attend to context, situation and related cultural perspectives. I borrow from Wolfelt (1996) the concept of "Companioning" vs. "Treating". New research shows that grieving people (children, youth and adults) are also resilient, & we work with this idea. Sometimes “words are not enough” & Art Therapy also benefits.

Research shows supportive counselling is one of the best ways to recover from grief and loss. Sharing time with someone trained to unlock your natural strengths can give you the boost you need to regain balance. I respect people's own sense of timing and healing, creating an oasis of caring in which to recover. I help people find their own unique path through loss to discover how the world can be OK again. I use evidence-based techniques to help those experiencing all kinds of losses (family member, pet, career, illness, losses due to abuse/assault). I have gently walked alongside many people recovering, and have very encouraging information and approaches to share.

Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT)

Within Driving Distance of Halifax, NS

Grief and loss are experienced differently for each person - so therapy must be individualized and tweaked just for you and your situation. It is a process not an event and so we go over your story together and look for those events and perceptions that are uniquely significant to you. That tells us where to start, and what to expect. There is no "normal" when it comes to grief and loss, but you can get back to feeling normal for you.

209-3845 Joseph Howe Drive, Halifax, NS B3L 4H9

When someone we love dies, we may feel many emotions and it may seem like this time will never end. Sometimes the grief we feel is complicated, conflicting emotions can add guilt, anger confusion, or a host of other feelings which can make an already difficult time seem unbearable. I help my clients understand that their experience of grief is ok no matter what they are feeling, that there is no right or wrong way to feel, no time frame for when you "Should" be over it. I believe it's important to help clients identify other losses, whether that be a loss of a relationship, a lost childhood, identity, or an addiction, these are all REAL losses which should be acknowledged and understood.

Janice A. Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist - Professional Therapy by Phone & Email

Within Driving Distance of Halifax, NS

Grieving is one of the most painful experiences you can have. It may be caused by the death of someone you love, illness, disappointment or for many other reasons. It may start even before the loss and usually continues long after it. You may feel devastated, abandoned, angry, sleepless, depressed, miserable, in pain or lonely. You may think you will never feel happy again. Sometimes grieving is delayed or denied for a long time. Maybe you don't even know why you feel so unhappy. Dr Janice is an expert in general bereavement counseling with special expertise in child death and post abortion grieving. I will ask you to tell me the whole story of your loss and help you find comfort and relief.
