Grief and Loss Counselling – Amanda Hansen

Amanda Hansen   Quals: B Psych, MAPS

Grief and Loss Counselling:  Whilst we most commonly associate the loss of a loved one with feelings of grief, other events can cause these same feelings. These can include the loss of employment, a relationship breakdown, loss of a friendship, illness, and even the loss of a pet.

Loss is a deeply personal experience, rarely following a predictable schedule, and presenting unique reactions for each individual. Grief is not a linear process, and most often people experience grief in waves of emotion.

Counselling Approach: Amanda can assist you through grief and loss by helping you to process your feelings, implement strategies to help you cope with the loss you have experienced, and by providing emotional support during a difficult time.
