MEDIUMISTIC PASTORAL GRIEF COUNSELING
Both therapists and people seeking treatment may hesitate to include spirituality or religion in the practice of therapy, due to the potential of differing beliefs and the possible controversy of the topic. But research suggests that when the inclusion of an individual's spiritual beliefs is included, it can assist in the process of healing.
Most of us have experienced some form of loss in our lives -- whether it be a beloved animal, family member, friend, or even just being affected by the loss of someone we may not even know -- the emotions related to death and dying are strong and life changing. We can find emotions that range from profound sadness and shock, being worried or feeling scared, to even feeling unprepared or confused. Clients have shared feelings of strong anger, feeling cheated, to being relieved, feeling guilty, and just plain empty. Whatever the emotion is, it’s a very personal and real experience, and can be natural reactions to the passing of someone. They are part of the process of grieving.
The grieving process is very personal and individual - each person goes through his or her grief differently. Some people reach out for support from others and find comfort in good memories. Others become very busy to take their minds off the loss. Some people become depressed and withdraw from their peers or go out of the way to avoid the places or situations that remind them of the person who has died.
I work with individuals that are in the active dying process (to help them make peace with their transition and take the fear out of that transition), families who have just lost loved-ones (establishing the connection with their loved-ones soul to facilitate healing and peace), and also people who are still grieving their loved-one even years after their loss. With Mediumistic Pastoral Grief Counseling, each client is unique from the perspective that I combine the connection with their loved-one on the other side, where they are in the individual grief process, and a communicated goal where their healing is concerned. No two sessions are alike. Contact me directly to set up a session to see how I can help you with this transition in your life.
