Grief and Loss Counselling

NOTE: there are some insurance companies who cover my services

Barbara provides counseling and guidance for a variety of losses.  Some people only need to know they are not going crazy when they feel so out of control in their life and don’t know what to do to take the pain of grief away.

For many people talking about their loss is difficult and the most difficult part is finding someone to talk with who will listen and care.

What about the loss experiences that go hidden from conversations?  The “secret” losses or those societies appear to be less willing to talk about such as;

  • Abortion loss experience by a men or women (yes, there is help for men too)
  • Illness (loss of independence, future dreams etc.)
  • Loss of a job (sometimes this changes how people see you)
  • Miscarriage or infant loss
  • Pet loss (many times pets are seen and loved as part of the family)
  • Relationship loss (depending on the relationship)
  • Sexual abuse loss (self, relationships, fear, anger etc.)
  • Suicide

The list above is not limited to what has been stated.

There are many times when one loss experience triggers grief and sadness from previous losses or an individual doesn’t grieve a loss for many years.

Counselling can be an avenue to release past hurts, fears and sadness that may be the cause of health related problems not initially related to grief.

GRIEF IS THE BASIS OF MANY CONCERNS IN LIFE BUT FEW PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THIS.

Talking with family members about a loss may not be the best decision since they;

  • May be experiencing their own grief reactions
  • May not want to hear the story of your loss over and over again
  • May not have the capacity to help in the manner you need at the time
  • May not be an appropriate resource given the situation
