Office & Groups in South Burnaby

 

You do not have to grieve alone

 Creative Climate Counselling Group is now offering ongoing bereavement support groups in South Burnaby on a monthly, drop-in basis:

I  AM  1 - a widow/widower group for those whom have lost a spouse or love partner through death - this group meets the last Wednesday of every month from 11:00AM to 1:00PM.

FALLEN BRANCHES - a group for anyone who is mourning the death of someone they love - This will be an evening group, meeting monthly, beginning in September 2015

WALK OF COURAGE - a group for Adults whom have lost a Parent - this group meets the first Monday of every month from 6:30PM to 9:00PM.

When someone you love dies, everything in your world changes.  Many people believe that they are going crazy, they feel "out of control".  These are normal responses to grief. The most beneficial thing that we can do for ourselves is to allow for the experience of our grief, express the emotions that we are experiencing and practice good self care.

Members of a support group typically share their personal experiences and offer one another emotional comfort and moral support. They may also offer practical advice and tips to help you cope with your situation.

Benefits of participating in support groups may include:
  • Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
  • Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
  • Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
  • Speaking openly and honestly about your feelings
  • Reducing distress, depression or anxiety
  • Developing a clearer understanding of what to expect with your loss
  • Getting practical advice, suggestions, and information about treatment options
  • Comparing notes and resources

Preregistration is required as we like to keep the groups under 12 participants.

 

Groups are open to adults, over the age of 18 and a fee of $30.00 is charged at the time of service.

 

All groups are run in South Burnaby and are open to all those whom have suffered a loss through death, regardless of the length of time since the death.

 

If you are interested in attending either individual grief support or a grief support group, please contact us by phone at 604-564-6222 or email at sarah@creativeclimatecounselling.com
