Grieving is a process with twists and turns rather than a straight line.

Bereavement is a major life stressor. The death of a loved one can have a tremendous impact on the lives of those left behind. There is no timeline for grief and one’s experience can be affected by a variety of factors, including whether or not the bereaved has a support system in place. The journey through grief is different for each person. With understanding and support, most people are able to resolve their feelings and make some sense of their experience over time.

Group counselling can be helpful for those who find solace in the reciprocal sharing of thoughts and feelings, and can be essential to the healing process for many. For many individuals, group therapy can be more beneficial than individual counselling. While it’s true that each individual is unique and may have unique circumstances with their grief and loss, group counselling serves as a reminder that no one is alone in their struggles.

Our organization exists to ensure individuals, families and communities have access to resources and additional supports during their journey of grief. Our grief groups offer mental health and wellness supports, companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss, and are experiencing the similar challenges that living with grief brings.  In a group setting, members have the opportunity to share stories openly without judgement, develop skills to help cope with their grief, and build their own network of supports in our community.

Being with those who understand the nature of our loss can bring us healing and comfort.  Together we create a circle of Hope – a safe place where we can begin to heal.

We're dedicated to your professional growth and development. Our education sessions cover a variety of topics.
