Experiencing a bereavement and coping with the grief that follows the death of a loved one are among the most painful life events most of us will face. Grief recovery coaching provides a safe space to talk about the loss and explore ways to manage our feelings.
It is normal to feel a range of emotions, such as sadness, anger, numbness and anxiety. It is also usual to experience grief sometime after your bereavement. Grief can occur after other forms of ‘loss’ such as divorce, the ending of a relationship or a child leaving home. These can also bring up deep emotions.
Mourning is a healthy and necessary process when an ending is painful, and sometimes we need support in the process.
We use the Grief Recovery Method to create a compassionate space for those who have experienced loss, to move through their grief and help them heal from that emotional pain. This approach helps people to remember and cherish their memories with more love rather than sadness.
When you walk alongside grief without pain and suffering, you can move from surviving to living life differently whilst continuing to honour your loved one.
By it's very nature, grief is our inward thought and emotional response to bereavement or loss. And as such, we must first heal on the inside before our world heals on the outside.

It can take some time for the reality of death to sink in. You don’t want to believe that someone you love has died. The truth can feel almost too much to bear.
You’ve lost so much – the person, their love, their friendship, intimacy, opportunities, hopes and dreams. And this loss may bring tremendous feelings of sadness.
You may feel guilty about things you said or did. Or maybe for stuff you didn’t say or do. You may also feel guilty that you are still alive or that there are times when you feel happy or when you focus on something other than your loss.
Death can seem very unfair. Many people find it tough to make sense of personal loss.
Sometimes bereaved people can feel angry. This anger is a normal part of the grieving process. Death can seem cruel and unfair, especially when we think someone has died before their time or when you have had plans for the future together.
You might feel anger towards yourself for what you did or did not do. But perhaps most difficult of all, you might feel angry with the dead person for dying and abandoning you and for the pain you are suffering because of their death.
Grieving can be a lonely process. You may feel that no one can understand what you are going through. And you may feel reluctant to talk to friends about how you’re feeling. This is the time when you should talk about your emotions.
Grieving can bring both physical and mental pain that can be overwhelming and frightening. Some people are surprised at how painful grieving can be.
You might feel relief, specially if the death followed a lengthy illness or if the person’s life had been difficult or uncomfortable in their final months.
