Personalized Approach

We understand that each person's grief and trauma journey is unique. Our therapists take a personalized approach, tailoring therapy to address your specific needs, emotions, and goals. We provide a safe and supportive environment where you can express yourself and heal at your own pace.

Virtual Counselling for Convenience

Our virtual counselling option allows you to access therapy from the comfort and privacy of your own space. Through secure and confidential video sessions, you can receive support conveniently, eliminating concerns about travel or scheduling conflicts.

In-Person Counselling for In-Depth Support

We offer in-person counselling services at our offices in Mississauga, Toronto, and Milton, and offer the convenience of home-visits across the GTA. In-person sessions provide a deeper level of support, allowing for a more immersive therapy experience and fostering a stronger therapeutic relationship.

Validation and Emotional Support

Grief and trauma counselling provide a safe and empathetic space where individuals can express their emotions and experiences without judgment. Therapists offer validation and emotional support, acknowledging the pain and validating the individual's grief or trauma. This validation helps individuals feel understood, acknowledged, and supported on their healing journey.

Processing and Expression of Emotions:

Grief and trauma counselling help individuals navigate the complex emotions associated with loss and trauma. Therapists provide tools and techniques for processing and expressing emotions in a healthy and constructive manner. Through therapy, individuals can explore and release pent-up emotions, facilitating the healing process and preventing emotional suppression or avoidance.

Coping Strategies and Resilience Building

Grief and trauma counselling equip individuals with coping strategies to navigate the challenges and triggers associated with their experiences. Therapists teach practical techniques, such as deep breathing, grounding exercises, and self-care practices, to manage anxiety, stress, and overwhelming emotions. By developing effective coping mechanisms, individuals can build resilience and regain a sense of control over their lives.

Integration of Loss and Trauma

Grief and trauma counselling help individuals integrate their experiences into their lives in a meaningful way. Therapists guide individuals in understanding the impact of loss or trauma on their identity, beliefs, and worldview. Through therapy, individuals can find meaning, make sense of their experiences, and create a narrative that allows for growth and healing.

Healing from Complex Grief

Grief and trauma counselling provide specialized support for complex grief, which occurs when the grieving process becomes prolonged or complicated. Therapists help individuals navigate the unique challenges of complex grief, such as unresolved emotions, guilt, or a sense of detachment. By addressing these challenges, individuals can find healing and move towards acceptance and a renewed sense of purpose.

Addressing Trauma Symptoms and Post-Traumatic Stress

Grief and trauma counselling assist individuals in addressing trauma symptoms and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) related to their experiences. Therapists employ evidence-based techniques, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), to help individuals process and reframe traumatic memories, alleviate distressing symptoms, and restore a sense of safety and well-being.

Restoring Trust and Connection

Grief and trauma can strain relationships and erode trust. Counselling provides a space for individuals to explore and heal relational wounds resulting from loss or trauma. Therapists support individuals in rebuilding trust, enhancing communication skills, and fostering healthy connections with loved ones. By addressing relational challenges, individuals can restore and strengthen their support networks.

Rediscovering Meaning and Purpose

Grief and trauma counselling assist individuals in rediscovering meaning and purpose in their lives. Therapists help individuals explore their values, strengths, and passions, enabling them to find new sources of joy and fulfillment. By reconnecting with personal values and aspirations, individuals can move forward with a renewed sense of purpose and create a meaningful future.

I am grateful to have had Shani be a resource and support during a difficult transition in my life. I had enough self-awareness to google 'therapy' and Hatch-Me came up. It was the reviews that led me to finally submit a request to connect with someone, and I met Shani. I understand why he encourages his patients, once we are in a better headspace, to share our experiences here in order to potentially attract other souls searching for support. There is no pressure, but an understanding of how reviews drive awareness - I am here for it. If you are looking for some guidance, support, or a path to a better headspace, I encourage you to check HM out and meet with anyone on the team. Shani - you are an angel. You provided appropriate therapeutic support and relevant guidance to me during a dark time in my life. Your dedication is unparalleled. You are so accommodating, work around my timings, when I'm late, hungry or when I am in a situation where I need a call or text - you do your best to be there, and you are. It tells me that you actually care about me, my wellbeing, and you want to see me thrive. I hope I am fortunate enough to know you forever. I can assure you I will continue to visit HM whenever I need to kick my negative thoughts in the 'behind'and focus on budling the life I know I deserve because, I Love myself enough to try a little more each day. Thank you for that. From my experience, Shani is patient, but he will also confront your thought patterns when needed. He will support you with reassurance and also challenge you to move outside of a comfort zone. He will be clear and forthright about what one needs to do (unique to them) for overall health and wellbeing. If you care and love yourself enough to want to make some positive changes in your headspace, I encourage you to make an appointment. I can assure you, you won't regret it. Thank you again Hatch-Me and Thank you always Shani. Love, an exposed Gill.

The best therapists around. My entire family has felt heard and supported. Shani is the best therapist/guide we’ve ever had. Other therapist are full of themselves and the advice they give is right off of google. Shani is direct and the way he breaks concepts down is just brilliant. We found our therapist for life.
Shani's incredible! He's very patient and understanding.
Very helpful and is very patient when things aren't going as smooth as they should be. Been a long time coming and I'm glad I started.

When you’re in a big city, it’s hard to find services that are incredibly professional, custom tailored to your needs AND leave you feeling hopeful. Hatch-Me’s approach to their services are heart-centred and personable, with exceptionally prompt and clear communication. Cassidy is a gem. Walk in with some trepidation and walk out feeling so very loved and cared for. My first ever cuddle session healed layers of my heart, gave me space to speak my truth about past hurt, and was welcomed by a compassionate and empathetic soul who gave me the confidence to continue healing myself. I am deeply grateful, thank you.
