Grief Counselling in London Ontario

When someone dies, we are changed. We must face a painful emotional, intellectual, and spiritual process of adjusting to a world in which someone who was significant to us is physically absent. In many cases, we are able to move through this process on our own, given time and support. At other times, however, we may become stuck – overwhelmed or frozen in our grief – and feel unable to move beyond this loss. Rebecca Machado is passionate about supporting individuals and couples through bereavement, helping them to move forward while still respecting their continued connection with the person who has died.

Rebecca Machado offers specialized support to individuals and couples who are greiving the death of someone who died through "unnatural causes" (e.g., suicide, homicide, accident, war). When someone has died through violent means, we are faced with the double challenge of adapting to the loss of the person from our lives as well as dealing with shock and horror related to the way in which they died. Enormous questions – including challenges to our beliefs about the way the world works, fears about our safety and the safety of those we love, and nagging guilt over what we think we could or should have done to prevent the death – often emerge in the wake of this type of bereavement. Rebecca Machado is dedicated to assisting those who must untangle the threads of meaning and grief that relate to such an experience, retaining wanted memories while healing the traumatic impact of the death.
