How individuals and families cope with dying, death, grief, loss, and bereavement is unique to each individual. Those who are bereaved experience grief, or a person's response or reaction to loss, which encompasses physical, psychological, social, and spiritual components. Historically, many grief counselors and grief therapists have chosen to follow the popular "grief counseling theory of the time." However, in the twenty-first century there are constantly changing theories regarding grief and loss, and new challenges and questions raised by researchers, clinicians, and the bereaved themselves regarding what is or is not helpful during the bereavement process.

Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

301 Bank St. (at Somerset St.) In Centretown, Ottawa, ON K2P 1X7

Many of my clients have a very difficult time assimilating a deep loss in their lives especially when they have lost a dearly beloved family member. At the time of their loss they require immense support and a "listening" ear". They often fear that they will never recover. What I offer them is some hope for their future and I suggest some techniques to them of how to "take the long view." I also assist them in finding relevant resources in their local community that can support them through the following months and years. I remind them that the last thing that their departed loved one would want is for them to lose their motivation and zest. I empower them to go on fully living.

Clients experiencing grief and loss can often benefit from a supportive therapeutic process. It can allow a space to explore feelings without having to take care of anyone else-it is just for them. Clients can also explore blocks or complications to grieving that might be contributing to their struggle, for instance older traumas, difficulty with feeling or expressing their emotions.

Grief is a normal reaction to loss, whether it is due to the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of job or any other loss. Grief impacts us emotionally, physically, and spiritually. How we grieve is affected by earlier experiences going right back to childhood, as well as by other experiences of loss. Grief is a process; part of the process of grief is ‘meaning making’. Psychotherapy and counselling can support and assist a person through the process of grief.

Michelle Bentley, MA, RP, RMFT

Registered Psychotherapist; Individual and Marriage & Family Therapist

2948 Baseline Rd #206, Ottawa, ON K2H 8T5

Losses are a part of life, whether of a loved one or a lost job or missed opportunity, and yet can be very difficult to navigate through and find our way back to ourselves and our “new normal.” Having a compassionate and skilled professional to journey with you can be very helpful in processing losses, remembering loved ones or lost dreams, and understanding the meanings this loss holds for you. I am experienced with supporting individuals and families in a caring manner as they determine how to journey through grieving in a way that meets each one's unique needs and experiences, including possible spiritual concerns.

Liesel Aranyosi, Registered Professional Counsellor

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, ON K2H 5Z1

Clients benefit from the approach I use in addressing Grief and Loss because it addresses the root cause of making it a complicated feeling of loss. There is a lot of validations and support of the painful feelings the bereaved is going through. And, the approach does not stop there. I go further by bringing into the clients' awareness why he/she is feeling the way he/she is and teach the client how to go through the normal painful feelings without going into complilcated grief or depression.
