Help, with Heart, for one and all.

Group & Personal Support Services

Roads to Healing (formerly called Living With Loss)  is a two-hour presentation that gives an overview of how grief is experienced and introduces ideas on how to deal with one’s own experience. It is offered in various Edmonton-area venues throughout the year.  There is no charge for Roads to Healing; donations to Edmonton Healing Centre for Grief & Loss are gratefully accepted. For those who wish to delve deeper, Roads to Healing serves as an introduction to Navigating the Rivers.

Navigating the Rivers (formerly called Walking With Grief) is a series of seven two-hour sessions offered weekly for seven weeks following most of the Roads to Healing presentations. In a small group with a skilled Bereavement Facilitator, participants share their experience with others, learn how to acknowledge and reconcile with their own grief experience and learn techniques for self-care in this difficult time. In lieu of fees, we ask participants to make a donation to the Edmonton Healing Centre for Grief & Loss upon completion of the program.

Participants who have completed the Navigating the Rivers series may wish to continue being supported with their grief in a group setting.  Periodically we offer a “Level 2” series called Finding Meaning-Finding Me.

For those who have suffered the death of their child, at any age, we offer Roads to Healing and Navigating the Rivers for Parents.  For those wanting to continue their journey in a guided fashion in a group, a “Level 2” of  Finding Meaning-Finding Me for Parents is offered periodically.

A series geared particularly for Youth who have suffered a death loss is offered from time to time.  If you are interested in a Healing Circle, please call or email for more information.

Seasonal and Special Information Sessions are offered from time to time for those who need a boost during times made more difficult by holidays and other events.

Individual Counselling is available to those who need this kind of support, for a short term, or for longer as necessary.
