One-On-One Individual Peer Support Sessions
At the Grief Healing Support Centre, we offer 1:1 sessions using the peer-to-peer model facilitated by trained Grief Healing Support Facilitators. These sessions are designed to provide individualized support and guidance to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
Please be reminded that we do not provide counselling, therapy, or crisis support. For immediate support, please call 1-855-310-2673 (COPE) or dial 911.
Our trained facilitators are compassionate and understanding individuals who have received specialized training in grief peer support. They are experienced in creating a safe and supportive environment for individuals to express their emotions, share their stories, and navigate the complex journey of grief.
During the 1:1 sessions, the facilitators employ a peer-to-peer approach, which means they approach the sessions as equals rather than adopting a traditional therapist-client dynamic. This approach fosters a sense of connection, empathy, and understanding between the facilitator and the individual seeking support. The sessions are an hour long giving the individual an opportunity to talk about their personal grief journey after loss.
The sessions are tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual, acknowledging that grief is a highly personal and individual experience. Facilitators provide active listening, validation, and non-judgmental support, allowing individuals to explore their feelings, thoughts, and concerns at their own pace.
In addition to offering emotional support, the facilitators may also provide education on the grieving process, coping strategies, and self-care techniques. They can help individuals identify and process their emotions, develop resilience, and find meaning and hope in their lives after loss.
Confidentiality and privacy are highly respected in these sessions. Individuals can feel comfortable sharing their deepest emotions and concerns, knowing that their information will be kept confidential as pre all privacy and information sharing laws and regulations.
Overall, the 1:1 sessions at the Grief Healing Support Centre provide a safe and supportive space for individuals to receive personalized support and guidance as they navigate the challenges of grief. Our trained facilitators are dedicated to helping individuals heal and find their own path to a continued life experience of hope and healing after loss.
