The grieving process is highly individual, and there is no set timeline for how long it takes to “get over” grief. The duration and intensity of grief can vary greatly depending on factors such as the individual’s relationship with the person or thing lost, the circumstances of the loss, the support system available, and personal coping mechanisms.

Grief is a natural and necessary response to loss, and it is a process that unfolds over time. It often involves experiencing a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, confusion, and even relief. Some people may find that their grief subsides gradually over several months or years, while others may continue to experience waves of grief for an extended period.

Roslyn is deeply committed to walking alongside her clients to help them recover in a manageable and sustainable way.

Roslyn’s primary objective throughout her counselling program is that you feel supported, most especially at the very early stages of engagement.  At this time, your emotional state may resemble an open wound, and it is critical that extra tender care is taken.  Roslyn will work with you to focus your emotional recovery efforts, understanding that this may be an hour-by-hour or day-by-day proposition.  In the most serious of cases, Roslyn may even be working minute-by-minute with you.

Each of Roslyn’s packages provide for online video face-to-face sessions of one hour and frequent additional direct contact via a choice of phone, email or SMS.
