It’s a once-a-week face-to-face meeting that gives you the tools, space, and support to work through and release the pain of a major life loss. The program lasts seven to twelve weeks, depending on the size of your program (one-on-one vs. group). One-on-ones usually last seven weeks and group programs usually last eight to twelve weeks.
In a one-on-one program, you’ll work directly with me. You’ll hear my story and get direct support from me throughout.
In a group program, you’ll work with me as well as others. You’ll hear my story as well as the stories of others and get support from the group through the later weeks of the program.
All losses are welcome! Death, divorce, and diagnosis are the most common, but there are over 43 losses that can cause grief.
During each session, you’ll be welcomed into a confidential, non-judgmental space where you’ll be expected to share the truth of your story as it happened to you. You’ll also be expected to complete weekly reading and homework assignments.
From me, you can expect open ears and an open heart ready to receive your story. I’m also available to answer logistical questions about the program.
A notebook and something to write with. Books and worksheets will be provided for you.
Yes. If you miss a one-on-one session, you’ll be asked to reschedule your session with the possibility of incurring a fee. If you miss a group session after the first two weeks, you’ll be asked to leave the program with the opportunity to finish with another group at another time.
The Grief Recovery Method® is a series of steps specifically designed to help you recover from major loss within a set time frame. Unlike traditional therapy, The Grief Recovery Method® comes with a pre-established framework, a distinct focus on grief, and a limited number of meetings.
