Grief

offers you choices.

Learn how

to deal with grief, and

apply the skills for life.

Grief is a challenger and will not be ignored. Grief support can help.

Grief can make it hard to move or think, to focus, to put a complete sentence together and may even cause pain and aches in the body. In fact, the effects of grief on body and brain are often mistaken for depression. 

A griever with a broken heart (and maybe even a broken body), with little or no support, is bound to have a hard time being present with what’s going on at home, or work, or in their community.

Learn how to deal with grief and stop the hurt with online grief training and support.

As your grief coach, I guide you through a practice of life skills using The Grief Recovery Method®, to address grief and loss one step at a time, in a way that makes you feel able to move on and move forward.

Losing people (death, diagnosis, divorce), and 

leaving places (moves, graduations, job loss or retirement) and 

losing states of being (belonging, security, safety, mobility, independance) 

are just a few of the over 40 losses any human may endure in one lifetime. Some losses happen in clusters, making grief even more challenging.

Does Grief Weigh You Down?

As your Grief Coach, I help you get a grip on grief so grief doesn’t get a grip on you.

 

First of all, know that your grief is a normal and natural  emotional response to loss (ends or changes in familiar patterns). 

If you aren’t treating grief as normal and worthy of attention…

If you would rather not open up and honor the [often conflicting] emotions that grief is bringing to light… 

then you are bearing the weight of unresolved grief. 

 Unresolved grief can look like

  • wishes that you or someone else woulda / coulda / shoulda said or done something differently.
  • regrets or resentments that something didn’t happen  better than it did.
  • hopes, dreams, and expectations that have little or no chance of happening the way you want.

 

Grief will hang on for life, weighing you down until you learn how to deal with it effectively. 

Grief support will take less time than waiting to feel better.  

 

Time doesn’t heal grief, and action does. Getting through grief to relief is about making a series of specific choices one practical step at a time. We meet weekly for 8-12 weeks, 2 hours/week online, to learn the Grief Recovery Method®.

Six 

Common 

Strategies 

to deal with

Grief

 

We’ve been taught to deal with grief the wrong way, 

all the while thinking we were doing the best we could.

Replace the loss 

(with a new person? A new place? A new thing? We are taught how to acquire things and not what to do when we lose them.)

Don’t feel bad

(Why not? Loss hurts. Does it go away when you pretend it doesn’t?)

Grieve Alone

(Why? Feeling like we’re the only ones can cause even more suffering.)

Just Give It Time

(Have you seen folks grieve for years without end? Time doesn’t heal grief. Action does.)

Be Strong for Others

(Just like airplane protocol, we are collectively safer when we put on our own oxygen masks before securing others.)

Keep Busy

(Being busy often makes us even more tired, and at a loss and does nothing to relieve the hurt/ache or heartache).

 

None of these tactics we’ve been taught across generations provide relief from grief.

With Grief Coaching and learning The Grief Recovery Method®, you to face your loss and grief in a way that works for life.

 

Using our heads to address matters of a broken heart is like using a hammer to paint a wall. It’s not the right tool and can make an even bigger mess. 

 

As your grief coach, I’ll train you in the life skill of processing the unresolved grief that is weighing you down. Learn Once, Apply, Repeat when necessary.

   

Grief support will take less effort than pretending everything is fine… or will be eventually.

Grief support via The Grief Recovery Method® trains you to better deal with your grief, and it also helps you be there for others who grieve. 

 

It’s hard to live a day when one doesn’t meet a griever in our midst. It’s common to not know what to say or do. 

The grief support you receive in this training also helps you to feel more knowledgeable and prepared to serve as a comforting presence for those who are grieving around you.

At Home. At Work. And in Your Community.
