Grief Counselling

We may outlive our pets: but the joy, love and wonder they bring can last a lifetime. The grief of losing a pet speaks to the richness and depth of our connection to our furry friends. Seeking support to process the complicated emotions that accompany that loss is an act of strength. It’s important to honour the space pets occupy in our hearts, and the unforgettable role that pets play in our lives. If you have lost someone or something precious, you may wish to find a therapist. Therapy can help with any sort of loss, whether society validates the grief or not. Therapy is an opportunity to explore your feelings and memories without judgement. People can be deeply upset after losing a pet, experiencing heightened sensitivity of sadness and rawness of emotions. No loss is too big or too small to warrant support. You do not have to endure your grief alone.

Experiencing loss is an inevitable part of owning a pet, but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain, come to terms with your grief, and perhaps even open your heart to another pet. Our pets provide us with so much unconditional love and companionship, and we immediately feel the pain and absence of the pet upon their passing away.
