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.

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.
