About Regimol Joseph, MSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker, Grief Counsellor
I am a Registered Social Worker( MSW, RSW) with a Certificate in Grief and Bereavement Studies. I have both voluntary and involuntary social work experience. Due to my subject interest in the areas of the psycho- social aspects of aging, cancer care, death and dying, grief and bereavement, I have completed my further education with Certificate in Aging (Boston University School of Social work) and Certificate in Grief and Bereavement Studies ( King’s University College at Western). I am open to work with those who desire to implement spirituality or faith aspects into their therapeutic process and keeping my work philosophy as being a companion to other's healing process. I have Christian faith views and I maintain a belief that our life is not free from struggles or challenges. But how do we manage those inevitable matters, often determines our quality of life at difficult times. Although we all have our own strengths or resources, sometimes we have to lean on others to carry on our life since we, are interdependent. Here comes my role as a grief counselor to be a companion for other's grief journey or healing process.
"I am a companion to your grief."
