Professional Grief Counselling
Loss Through Death Group
Offered In association with the Vancouver Center for Loss and Bereavement and Living through Loss Counselling Society of BC, this group is for people experiencing the loss of a loved one through death.
The loss of someone you care for may bring the greatest emotional pain one can ever experience. For many people, the resulting feelings of loneliness, sadness, fear and abandonment are overwhelming, and one’s identity, self-esteem and sense of purpose in life may also suffer.
Through lectures, sharing and written exercises, group members learn to adjust to the pain of loss, restore their self-esteem, and regain hope and energy for the future.
Facilitated by professional grief & loss therapists. Groups have a limited enrollment.
Duration: 6 weeks
This is a closed therapy group. Registration in advance is required.
