Grief Counselling

Grief is a normal part of your humanity, but it is deeply painful. It may show up as sorrow, despair, loneliness, confusion, anger, disillusionment, and more. You might face regrets for the past, questions about the future, and difficulties staying in the present.


Learning to honour your emotions is an important part of grieving, because turning away from them can keep you stuck in your pain and create new symptoms. But you must also learn how to be with your grief in a centered and steady way so that you are not overwhelmed by your feelings. 


​I offer a process that is gentle, holistic, and based in spiritual psychology and philosophy. Grief is sacred work, and must be treated as such. You can connect to a deeper awareness within yourself that offers a wider perspective, intuitive answers, true acceptance, and healing.
