Loss and grief are a normal and integral part of life. Each person needs to move through the grief cycle and do so in a healthy manner.

There are many types of loss that we may experience, including: breaking up with a loved one, moving far away, divorce of parents, losing a friendship, questioning spiritual beliefs, challenging an illness, death of friend/family member, or developing a disability. Grief is often accompanied by feelings of pain and suffering. Our goal in our program is to help our clients move through the experience and heal and resolve from the loss. This includes helping individuals manage with reaction, adaptation, and process.

Typically, the bereaved person will move through a challenge in identity. The person will naturally have to distance themselves from the attachment they had to the event/person and recognize that the situation has changed by moving towards acceptance. At times the situation can be viewed as positive, as it often facilitates personal growth, but initially it can be difficult and the person may describe feeling a sense of loneliness and helplessness.

We all experience difficulties adjusting to change from time to time. Some of us experience more difficulties than others. Our program well help individuals develop the appropriate coping strategies to help our clients challenge or effectively deal with obstacle(s) in their life.

Our goal is to empower our clients with the necessary skills and resources to challenge habits, attitudes, emotional responses, and behavioural patterns that play a part in adjusting appropriately.

What we know from psychological research focused on adjustment is that those who are willing to conform, adapt and possibly accept will likely find it easier to accept change. Our therapy program helps individuals recognize that change is an opportunity for growth that requires constant conscious evaluation and habitual behaviour modification. Ineffective habits should be examined and possibly discarded for the facilitation of new or more effective established behaviours.

Our goal at Counselling Services for York Region is to see that you succeed in reaching your therapeutic goals. If you have any questions about our counselling program specific to adjustment issues, please feel free to contact us (416-999-3437 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

As you may have heard before, stress is an unavoidable part of life. Throughout the years, studies have observed the effects of stress on our physical wellbeing. Many studies suggest that long-term stress increases the likelihood of individuals developing medical conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and reproductive disorders.  Clinical research has offered a number of approaches or theories that could help individuals better cope with day-to-day stress/anxiety.

Our approach to stress management is to help individuals better understand each variable that may be influencing their difficulties. This includes an evaluation of their environment, thoughts, behaviours, and physical symptoms. Together, we work on developing a treatment plan that will help our clients find balance and ease.  Our approach uses new techniques and theories from psychological and biological research, which includes (mindfulness, narrative, and cognitive behavioural therapy).
