Loss may happen in a variety of ways. Moving through the emotional toll of loss of a family member, relationship, pet, job, or community can be difficult to navigate alone. I have experienced profound losses that led me to develop skills around grief and bereavement that have benefited others. Grief is very personal and each individual needs the space, time, and support to move through their personal journey of loss.
As a mentor, advisor, and educator, I have worked with many individuals that have experienced depression. At times in my life, I too have been treated for depression. My training as a practitioner, 20+ years of experience supporting others, and personal experience has helped me develop very useful skills to support others experiencing depression.
Anxiousness, anxiety, panic attacks may all be words that you are familiar with. We live in a very anxious society and all have experienced feelings of anxiousness or anxiety at some point in life. Deep breathing, mindfulness, meditation, and cognitive reframing are techniques that I commonly use and recommend. I work collaboratively with clients to discover what techniques and strategies work best for them.
I find that CBT is a very useful therapeutic approach to use with my clients. With this approach, we work collaboratively to unravel certain thoughts and beliefs to identify what is at the core . Once we have discovered the origin of a particular thought or belief, we can challenge it through a series of conversations and identify ways to reframe it so that it better aligns with your values and goals. It is a very helpful way to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
