Grief and Loss Counselling – Susanne Gilmour

Susanne Gilmour     Quals: BA, Cert Teach, Grad Dip Social Science, Grad Dip Psych, MAPS.

Grief and Loss Counselling: Grief is not a mental disorder, but a normal response to a loss that has great significance for an individual, usually associated with the death of a loved one.

However, many other kinds of loss can also plunge us into grief: the loss of a pet; the end of a significant friendship; the permanent loss of health and ability; separation and divorce; the involuntary loss of a home or business we have put our heart and soul into; having to give up any long-held dream that proves impossible to realize.

Counselling Approach: Susanne Gilmour is an experienced psychologist, who listens empathically to her clients. She accompanies them through the journey from grief to acceptance, to eventually arrive at a place where a different life can be contemplated with the expectation that there are joys to be had again.

If a client’s grieving appears to become consistent with a diagnosis of a depressive disorder, then Susanne will work with the client’s GP or psychiatrist to provide an integrated approach to therapy.
