Grief and loss

... and Prolonged Grief

If you’re an adult navigating the profound and often overwhelming feelings of grief and loss, it can seem like no one truly understands the depth of your sorrow. Grief can envelop every part of your life, affecting your emotions, physical health, and daily functioning. Recognizing your need for support during this difficult time is a vital step toward healing.

We’ll also explore how to maintain connections with others and support systems that can aid in your healing process.

My expertise in this area ensures that you will receive sensitive, informed, and effective guidance as you move forward.

When Grieving Takes Over your life

Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one. For most people, the symptoms of grief begin to decrease over time. However, for a small group of people, intense grief persists, and the symptoms are severe enough to cause problems and stop them from continuing with their lives. Prolonged grief disorder is characterized by intense and persistent grief that causes problems and interferes with daily life.

When strong feelings of yearning or longing for your loved one and/or thoughts and memories of them are so persistent and intense that it stops you from living your life in a meaningful way

Prolonged Grief

At La Ronge Counselling, we also focus on providing counselling for intense grief using an evidence-based therapy called “Prolonged Grief Disorder Therapy.” 

Prolonged Grief Disorder Treatment (PGDT) is a short-term therapy that addresses the issues that complicate grief and helps strengthen a bereaved person’s natural adaptive capacity. There are components of the therapy to help people get to know grief, manage strong emotions, think about the future, rebuild strong relationships, think about the death, revisit reminders of the loss and access living memories. PGDT delivered in 16 weekly sessions can make a dramatic difference in the life of someone with complicated grief. After PGDT, 70% of people are much improved (Columbia University).

La Ronge Counselling provides individual PGDT sessions. For PGDT counselling to be effective, clients should be dedicated to following a framework of around 16 sessions. Each session lasts about one hour.
