Renee Magri - Dip. Couns.
Hello to all,
Welcome to the FIMH Website. I would like to share my story with you. In November 2016 I lost a very important part of my life, my Boxer Buckley. He is the true meaning of unconditional love and loyalty. He was and will always be my very best friend.
Buckley was diagnosed with a terminal illness and I cared for him the best way I could until I had to make one of the most heart breaking decisions of my life.
When my vet came to my home and my boy said goodnight forever the pain I felt was excruciating.
I've now recovered from my loss and learned so much about Pet Loss/Grief that I want to now help others on their healing journey.
Losing a beloved pet can be one of the most difficult things we can go through in our lives and often it can feel like a very "lonely grief". We can feel lost and alone and it's very common for others not to fully understand the depth of our loss.
I'm a qualified Counsellor and have a passion for Grief and Loss particularly Pet Bereavement. I do ongoing Professional Development to continue to broaden my knowledge which then allows me to share that with my clients.
Through my own personal experience, I can relate to you as I have been there also and may have experienced some of the things that you are currently going through.
I work collaboratively with my clients to guide and support you to reach your therapeutic goals. I share coping strategies to assist you with what your feeling and apply suitable therapies to help and support you on your recovery journey.
My support is not only there after a loss, it's also there before a loss. Knowing that your Forever Friend has limited time can be very stressful (I can really relate to that).
Together, we will work towards acceptance of your loss which will help you to have a wonderful relationship with your treasured memories.
