You don’t have to navigate it alone.
Confronting grief is painful and challenging and there are many reasons grief may find its way to your door.
Loss of a loved one
Loss of job or retirement
Inability to have children
Loss of a pet
Change in health
Loss of a particular way of life
Sometimes we need help to process our grief
I use different tools and modalities to support people move through their denial, anger, bargaining and depression until they finally arrive at acceptance.
Many people underestimate the time it takes to work through grief, but it needs to be fully experienced to allow healing on the other side. Healing from your loss doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, it just means it no longer controls your life.
You don’t need to suffer alone. My role is to provide emotional support, by holding space for you to unpack your pain. I’ll help examine your thoughts and feelings and provide insight into how to move through grief in healthy ways. Navigating the grief process, in a compassionate way that honours you, your grief and the process.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Grief counselling necessary?
Grief is something we will all face at some time, for a variety of reasons. It’s unique to each of us and we all experience grief differently. Grief like trauma sits in our body and if we don’t move through it and process it in healthy ways, it can result in unresolved grief, which can cause us many health issues.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COUNSELLING AND COACHING?
Most of us if we are truthful have things we can work on and changes we could make. Our belief system is formed by the age of around 7 and some of those beliefs we hold no longer serve us. Interestingly, they sit in our unconscious mind so rarely do we know what is triggering certain feelings and behaviours in us and they can effect all parts of our lives. We call them limiting beliefs as they are beliefs that are no longer healthy for us and limit our thinking and lives. For example a belief carried often is “I’m not enough” and this can really cause issues. Getting underneath these beliefs are critical to move forward and grow.
It’s a safe space to talk about your feelings and pain, as we work together to find the best modalities and tools for your individual needs. Our inner world is so often neglected because we focus so heavily on our outer world, when in reality if our inner world does not get the attention it needs, it can and does cause havoc on our whole world.
How many sessions do I need?
It really depends on the issue, what modality we choose to work with and how deep you choose to go. We will discuss the options available and how they work. Sometimes when therapy commences other issues arise, which is great as we can address them. My goal is to support my clients in the most efficient yet thorough way as possible.
