Grief Counselling


"Each person's grief is as unique as their fingerprint. But what everyone has in common is that no matter how they grieve, they share a need for their grief to be witnessed. That doesn't mean needing someone to try to lessen it or reframe it for them. The need is for someone to be fully present to the magnitude of their loss without trying to point out the silver lining."

David Kessler

Signs seeking grief support may be beneficial:

  • You just need someone to talk to about your loved one or your pain

  • You're crying more often than not

  • You're having difficulty functioning at work, in school, or in parenting

  • The grieving process feels overwhelming, intense, or prolonged, lasting for an extended period without any improvement.

  • You're finding yourself isolating from family and friends

  • You're experiencing sleep issues that are making it difficult to function

  • You're finding it challenging to express your emotions

  • You are experiencing excessive guilt

What can you expect from grief counselling?

Research shows that our grief needs to be witnessed. Grief therapy can be a safe, compassionate place to talk about your grief, share in memories of your loved one, and ultimately find a way to honour them. In doing these things, typically clients will feel a reduction in their emotional pain and describe an ability to move forward.
