Grief and Loss Counselling – Lauren Burrow

Lauren Burrow       Quals: B. Psychological Science (Hons); Grad. Cert. Health Promotion

Grief and Loss Counselling: A life without loss is a life without love – so if we have loved something, be it a person, an animal/pet, a marriage or relationship, a job, or a lifestyle, we will all end up experiencing loss and associated grief during our lives. We will all respond in our own way to these losses; there is no set way or timeframe that we should adhere to when grieving a significant loss in our lives. If you or someone you care about seems to be stuck and not able to move through the stages of grief, then you may find it helpful to talk to a professional who can gently guide you through these stages, who will respect you as an individual and what is meaningful to you in regards to whom or that which you have lost.

Counselling Approach: As with all her clients, Lauren approaches grieving clients with respect and empathy, and listens to their needs first and foremost. Lauren incorporates active listening, building on strengths/achievements, positive psychology techniques as well as some Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques where appropriate in sessions with these clients. Lauren’s aim is to encourage her clients to grieve in their own meaningful way, offering them a compassionate and supportive space to work through their grief at their own pace.
