Grief & Loss

Elizabeth Hepworth, HBA, MA, RP, OACCPP, CCPCPR

Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Markham, ON

We live in a mortal imperfect world and the grief process is about let go of the pain and remembering the person and allowing them to continue on in you. My approach is to set up time everyday to deal with the grief and balance that sadness with routine to help slowly overcome the pain. In the case of loss the process is much the same but we work on learning from the emotion around the relationship/job and preparing ourselves to move forward.

Angela Colangelo, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

Markham Road/Hwy 48, Markham, ON L6E 1A3

Feelings of grief or loss account for a great deal of sadness experienced by people, including loss of a loved one due to death, loss of a relationship that has ended, loss of a dream of what might have been, loss of something that you have relied on for a long time. I help my clients see that the process for dealing with this is similar to loss through death and that each person has their own way and timeline for grieving. I help my client chose healthier ways of coping and to be compassionate about their individual process.

During the times of losses, we are often overwhelmed with sadness. Moreover, moving forward in life after experiencing a loss could be a daunting task. In grief and loss counselling, I offer a safe space for you to mourn and express your hurt. Together, we will unpack the meaning of the loss to you, and seek consolation. Meanwhile, I will offer support to you when you are ready to move forward and cope with some changes in your life after the loss. Sessions can be conducted in English or Cantonese.

Counsellor/Therapist

68 Peter Street, Markham, ON L3P 2A6

No one needs to feel isolated or alone when coping with loss. The death of a love one changes our lives forever. The end of a relationship, job loss, retirement, can leave us feeling saddened, overwhelmed or changed as well. Finding your way through loss, transitioning to healing, hope and new purpose in life may seem like an endless journey. Grief counseling and an understanding professional can help. During this difficult time, Christine works alongside you to provide support, encouragement and compassion.

Registered Psychotherapist; Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

1 Valleywood Drive, Markham, ON L3R 5L7

There are many forms of loss we encounter in life - relationships, places, work, meaningful engagements, roles at work or at home, etc. The deeper any of these mean to us, the harder it can be to process the loss. I offer a place to sit with loss, to explore what's going on with it, to learn what's normal & what to expect in this type of journey. Grief has it's own schedule, it's important to honour this, and to grieve well.

Losing a partner, a parent or even a job causes us to go through a period of grieving and adjustment. I will walk alongside you through this process and help you to move towards a positive future. Using compassion and experience I will assist you in developing tools for your future life, and also explore your new life and what it will mean for you.

Alexandra Bond, Hon.B.Sc, (psych), M.S.W., R.S.W

Registered Clinical Social Worker: Indvidual & Couples Therapist

Markham, ON L3P 2T2

Feeling grief and loss is unique to each person, but it is felt more or less as a form of depression. Grief and loss is felt not just from the death of a loved one, but also from divorce and relationship losses. I find that clients often begin to feel isolated in their grief, relationships become affected, and moving through daily activities can feel overwhelming. As a Specialist in Depression, I help my clients move through the stages of loss, and I help them to feel pleasure and hope in their daily lives, rebuilding self-esteem and self-worth. I offer kindness and support, and my clients often comment that they "feel lighter" and "hopeful" after each session.

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

Within Driving Distance of Markham, ON

Acceptance is the hardest part to get to when someone you care about dies. For everyone, the grieving process is very different and unique to them. I hold the 'space' for a person to talk about their feelings, to acknowledge the loss, the anger and the guilt that comes with death, and for them to feel their way into a new way of living. I offer rituals, ways to remember a loved one, and ways to accept their feelings and emotions.

Social Worker, Psychotherapist, ADD Specialist, Life Coach

199 Snowdon Cir., Markham, ON L3P 7S7

I define grieving as: "Your body is healing an emotional break and/or bruise". A loss of any type will create emotional bruising or an emotional break - such as the loss of a loved one. Grieving is a normal emotional healing process. Our emotions will heal, just as a broken leg will heal. However, we are to nurse the bruise/break properly, otherwise the emotional body can not heal itself. I will help you develop a healthy emotional wound care system. I provide a safe place for you to vent your feelings. Venting feelings or I like to call it "washing your emotional wound" is the first step. Then I teach the emotional nursing steps which will guide and support the healing process.

Registered Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Markham, ON

I have personally suffered a great loss in my life, as a result, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to work with clients who have also suffered similar tragedies. Textbook grief therapy is not enough. My experience has helped me formulate a deep understanding of the particular fears, sadness, and problems one faces while dealing with a profound loss.

Grief is a normal and natural reaction to loss of any kind, so the feelings you are having are normal and natural for you. We can work through your grieving process when you lose a beloved pet, when you move and are trying to begin again in a new place, when someone you love dies, when your health is threatened, when you retire or face an empty nest.
