There are over 40 different types of losses one can go through.
Are you someone who is grieving a loss and having a difficult time overcoming it because you have so much guilt built up inside of you because of how you feel?
Are you someone who is grieving the loss of a loved one and feel stuck trying desperately to move forward and find peace in your life yet you fear forgetting that person?
Are you someone who is grieving the loss of a relationship because it has ended and don't know how to overcome it whether it's due to a breakup, divorce, or death?
Are you someone who is grieving the loss of a pet and feel overwhelmed with grief because you can't possibly imagine your life without that special friend who was always there for you through thick and thin?
In addition to counseling, I provide The Grief Recovery Method® in both individual and group settings as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist (CGRS). In this education program, you will work through grief and loss according to what you are going through or have been though.
PURPOSE: The goal of The Grief Recovery Method® is to help you complete your relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by significant emotional loss. While death and divorce may seem to be the most obvious losses, our groups are not limited to those losses. There are more than 40 life events that can produce feelings of grief.
GUIDELINES: We have a few guidelines to preserve our group’s safety and harmony. It is essential that there be no judgment or evaluation of each other. We should be careful not to compare our pain and losses with each other’s. All relationships are unique, therefore each person’s grief is unique. It’s also important to know that grievers are not broken, therefore they don’t need to be fixed. They don’t need to be analyzed, criticized, or judged. They need to be listened to with dignity and respect.
HOMEWORK DIRECTIONS: The key to your success in this grief support group hinges on your willingness to apply yourself to the weekly homework assignments designed to help you move beyond loss. Homework is based on The Grief Recovery Handbook, so everyone should have a copy. We can guide you in the actions of The Grief Recovery Method®, but we can’t do them for you. Your participation is the key to your recovery.
