Grief and loss

Grief and loss are certainly some of those universal human experiences that affect all of us. Whether it be the death of someone close, the end of a relationship or the loss of a job, there is an array of complex feelings, behaviours and thoughts that occur that challenge everyone.

Everyone’s experience of grief and loss is different, but talking to a psychologist may provide an anchor in a stormy sea where everything seems rocky and unpredictable.

If you are struggling to adapt to the grief of someone close to you, seeking support from a psychologist may make what is a challenging process that bit smoother.

We can’t take away grief and loss but we can help you move through the process effectively

We can’t take away the pain, but we can help you understand what is normal and what you may do to move through the process effectively and adapt.

We can teach you strategies that will allow you to cope more effectively and manage daily activities more easily, while achieving each of the tasks of grief successfully.

Most of all we can provide that safe space for you to express your grief honestly and openly without fear of burdening others or being judged.

Our preference is to speak with you because that helps us pair you with the most appropriate psychologist while avoiding a number of emails going back and forth. However, we are happy to communicate with you using either method. And for your convenience, we are here in person after hours until 9pm Monday to Thursday, and on Saturday until 2pm - or feel free to leave a voicemail message if calling outside those times. We look forward to hearing from you.
