Cancellation or Rescheduling Appointments:

By making a counselling appointment you are agreeing that you will give a minimum of 24 hours’ notice if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment to avoid paying for the appointment. This is because 1 hour of time has been reserved for you and your counsellor's time is very valuable, and time is required to offer an appointment time to someone else.  There is a fee for unattended appointments. 

It is wise to get help with issues that are causing us emotional distress early on so that they don't escalate in severity. Call Lynette today to book your appointment or to talk to her about your counselling needs on her mobile:  021 422 400

There is no right way to grieve and the timeline for grief can vary greatly. Your experience of grief is dependent on many factors such as the nature of the loss, your faith, your life experiences, your method of coping, and your personality.

It is important to care for yourself and to be patient as you allow the grief process to progress naturally. Grief can be enormously painful. You may become overwhelmed by a range of difficult emotions and it can feel as though you will never cease to be consumed by sadness and pain. These feelings are often a normal response to a significant loss and it takes time for the reality of the loss to be incorporated into one's life.

Some people get stuck in grief and their grief becomes complicated. People with complicated grief need professional counselling to discover what has caused them to become stuck in their grief, so that it is addressed properly and then they are able to move forward in the grief process and with their life.  Lynette has helped many people with complicated grief to discover what was causing them to be stuck and resolve it successfully. Even those who have been stuck in their grief for 2 or 3 decades have been able to resolve issues causing complicated grief and move forward with their lives through doing grief counselling. You can read their testimonials on the testimonial pages.

Other people that are grieving seek the empathic understanding of a Counsellor to support them through the trauma of the grieving process and to help them to find their way to live with their loss. In some circumstances, the natural grieving process can generate secondary issues such as depression or anxiety.

Lynette at Springs of Life Christian Counselling can offer assistance and empathic support to people experiencing grief by providing grief counselling.
