Grief Recovery Method® 7-Session One-on-One Program

 

An individual approach to Grief Recovery® allows you to work through your grief at your own pace. Because everyone grieves differently, you may require more than 7 sessions to complete your relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by the loss.

 

You are asked to commit to 7 sessions minimum to effectively complete the program and allow sufficient time to benefit from the emotional work you will be doing.

 

The text that is used to guide you to recovery is The Grief Recovery Handbook - 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition - The Action Program for Moving Beyond Death, Divorce, and Other Losses by John W. James and Russell Friedman. The text will be provided to you upon commitment to the program.

Grief Recovery Method® 8-Week Grief Support Group

 

A group approach to Grief Recovery® allows you the opportunity to connect with others who have also experienced significant emotional losses in their lives and are ready to take action to heal their hearts.

 

The groups are not a drop-in style format. You are asked to commit to the 8-week program as weekly attendance is vital for maximum benefit in the healing process.

Grief Recovery Method® 6-Week Pet Loss Recovery and Support Program

 

There are approximately 40 million new pet grievers every year. Given this astounding statistic, you would think that there would be an enormous number of resources available for those who have lost a pet. Sadly, there is very little guidance for grieving pet owners to achieve long-term completion of the grief caused by the death of their pet.

 

Our relationships with our pets are almost always exclusively positive. They don't hurt our feelings, lie to us, betray us, or rob us. We can tell our pets anything without fear of judgement, criticism, or analysis. The unique relationships we have with our pets is the closest thing to an unconditional relationship that we will ever have. They are unconditionally accepting of us, just the way we are.

 

The groups are not a drop-in style format. You are asked to commit to the 6-week program as weekly attendance is vital for maximum benefit in the healing process.

What am I investing in?

 

With over 35 years in existence, The Grief Recovery Institute® has helped hundreds of thousands of people across the world heal from significant emotional loss.  The Grief Recovery Method® is a tried, tested, and true way in which to acknowledge and become complete with losses of any kind.

 

 

What is unique about The Grief Recovery Method®?

 

Grief support groups provide a safe and non-judgemental environment for you to verbalize the thoughts and feelings you experience following a loss. While there is an absolute benefit to that kind of expression, it may not be enough. Talking about how you feel often does not complete the unfinished emotional business that is attached to your loss. The Grief Recovery Method® Programs are designed to guide you through a series of actions to not only verbalize your feelings, but to also help you complete the pain associated with those feelings. It is not time that heals our wounds, it is the actions we take within time that does. This action-oriented program requires total honesty and commitment.

 

 

How soon after a loss can you begin Grief Recovery®?

 

Effective Grief Recovery® can begin immediately. We tend to create larger-than-life memory pictures in which we either enshrine or bedevil the person who died or the person from whom we are now divorced, estranged, etc. This phenomenon increases with time, making it more difficult to discover the truth within our relationships. It is never too soon to address your grief.

 

 

 

 

Our sessions can be conducted in person at my office or we can also meet via phone or video chat or on email. Whatever is the most convenient for you. Please do not let distance be a factor for getting support
