Grief and Loss Counselling

Grief is our response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone or something to which there is a deep bond or attachment. Every culture specifies a response to grieving suggesting particular rituals, styles of dress, or emotional expression.

Grief counselling can help a person get through the challenging phases of this very important process. At Waypoint Counselling and Referral Centre, we are here to help.

The “work of grieving” is both emotional and physical, and for many of us, we are not even aware of the effects all the time.  It is also very personal – everyone grieves in their own way, in their own time. Sometimes it is a very private experience, and for others it impacts their relationships with others and their ability to work and experience everyday joy.

Grief counselling can make a significant difference in helping a person face the day to day pain of missing a loved one.  At Waypoint Counselling and Referral Centre, we can help you get matched to the most appropriate counsellor for what you are experiencing.  The counselling process is highly personal and the match to the right counsellor is the most important factor in experiencing good outcomes.

There are two ways to get a counsellor at Waypoint Counselling and Referral Centre:

  1. Contact us to speak with the Clinical Director George Bielay.  He will spend a bit of time on the phone with you to get a good idea of the right grief counsellor for you. Then you can book into a complimentary session to see if the counsellor is the right “fit”.  If not, no problem and no questions asked. We will continue working with you to right the best counsellor for your needs.
  2. Select your own therapist by looking through our team of counsellors.  Many of them have a specialty in greif counselling. Book a complimentary session to see if it is a good fit.
