Grief Support

...because life doesn't go in straight lines and often takes more work than you think. Loss exacerbates existing anxieties and can really throw your life off course leading to behaviours that undermine a healthy life.

David was fundamental in helping me unpick the overwhelming grief and shame surrounding a traumatic parent bond after my mother died. His support, empathy and kindness were critical factors in me being able to understand and process the damage, and to move forward in life with compassion and strength.  He has helped me carve an open, loving path for the future that acknowledges yet closes the door on the trauma, leaving it in the past where it belongs.  I feel very lucky to have found David and cannot recommend him highly enough.

How I Help

With over 30 years experience, I help people cope with the loss of a loved one or any other significant life change. I provide support, guidance, and coping strategies to help the grieving person process their emotions and move forward with their life. I do not offer therapy or counselling, but rather act as a companion and a mentor for the bereaved. Some of the things that I can do are:

  • Listen to your story and validate your feelings

  • Help you to understand the stages and tasks of grief

  • Assist you in finding meaning and purpose in your loss

  • Help you to set goals and action plans for your recovery

  • Provide resources and referrals to other sources of support

  • Encourage you to engage in self-care and healthy coping behaviours

  • Support you in creating a new identity and a new normal after your loss

I can work with individuals or groups, and can use my experience across a wide landscape of loss, such as death, divorce, illness, or job loss. I can also work with clients who are anticipating a loss, such as those who have a terminal illness or are caring for someone who is dying and help clients to prepare for the inevitable and make the most of their remaining time.
