Grief & Loss
There are many kinds of grief, not just in relation to death and dying. Any loss can be attributed to grief.
You might want to explore an older grief that is still on your mind or a current loss.
Whatever it is, we can talk about it together.

We meet one-one weekly, if you decide to continue beyond the initial session. I suggest to continue for at least 6 weeks, but it is up to you to decide. I work for limited sessions and also open ended.

It is not known ahead of time when you might feel differently, clarity about your situation is revealed over time.

We will continue to review how things are going, and work accordingly. It’s up to you how long you want to work together. I suggest it takes at least 6 sessions to get something worthwhile, this allows any initial feelings, like nervousness to dissipate.

This can be discussed.
