Grief and Loss Counselling – Laura Fleming

Laura Fleming    Quals: BA&Sc, Grad Dip Psych, M Psych (Forensic).

Grief and Loss Counselling:  Laura works with clients who have experienced grief and loss. There are no hard and fast rules of how someone will experience grief or even when. Popular culture usually portrays grief as someone falling to the ground and crying buckets of tears immediately after someone has passed. However, grief can also be expressed by numbing of feelings, loss of enjoyment in activities, or dread and can occur even years after an event. Loss is not necessarily related to the death of someone but could be the loss associated with life changes, such as redundancy, major illness, divorce, or changes in custody arrangements.

Counselling Approach: Laura works from a client-centred perspective – listening to the story of the client and letting the client set the goals, whilst utilising her psychological skills to assist the client to develop their own skills to achieve their goals. This can incorporate aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) including Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Narrative Therapy. She is experienced in working with young people from various cultural backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
