Each of us can experience loss in our lives in various ways, and the effects can be different for every individual. One of the biggest and most difficult forms of loss is the death of someone really important to you. There are however many types of loss where you might experience grief.

- Separation from a parent, both parents and your family.
- Separation from friends or your community.
- Moving away from home or leaving your country.
- Loss of your childhood.
- Splitting up with your partner.
- Having a miscarriage.
- Being forced to give up something you don’t want to (like your job, child, or home).
- Losing your job.
- Leaving school or university.
- Losing or not having the ability to have children.
- Losing the ability to do some things through disability.
- Having an abortion.
- Becoming really sick or seeing someone else become really sick.
- Even when we experience change that is positive to us such as leaving school and starting work we can also experience some feelings of grief for what we’ve left behind.

How Do You Treat the Pain of Grief?
What if you could move through the emotional pain of grief and gain relief from its debilitating symptoms? Similarly, to clients experiencing trauma and PTSD, we use emotional relief therapy to cut short the repetitive loop of grief symptoms. This therapy helps the brain to process information more fully so that one can stop reliving grief and loss and over again. We get to the root of the problem at its core.
We know what it is like to be in the repetitive grip of grief and loss. We have used this successfully with a countless number of clients and they feel they can walk out of the office with a weight off their shoulders. Let us spare you some of the pain. We can help you get through this. The pain of loss is highly responsive to treatment and we can help you.
