Healing Hearts from the Start
You might be wondering if being a Grief Recovery Method Specialist is a somewhat morbid, depressing or miserable type of work. The truth is it is the exact opposite.
For clients dealing with painful emotions there may or may not be tears and either is ok. There is no judgement, criticism or analysis of you, your feelings or your life. I believe tears are cleansing and positive, like washing yourself from the inside out.
As a Specialist it is amazingly rewarding, uplifting and wonderful to witness clients go from a place of deep pain, heartache and sadness to one of relief, peace and happiness. As every Specialist has been through the program they are able to assist you from a totally different emotional place. Just as personal trainers need to maintain their fitness, a Grief Recovery Specialist continues to use the life long tools to remain in a healthy position to help clients.
If you misdiagnose you will mistreat
Grief is a normal reaction to loss, yet often the feelings or symptoms of unresolved grief can be similar to those of depression. A 5-minute visit to your doctors to tell him or her you’re having trouble concentrating, you can’t sleep, you’ve lost your appetite or feeling out of control as you experience a roller coaster of emotions can lead to misdiagnosis and therefore mistreatment.
Obviously the potential dangers in taking unnecessary medication can be huge. Antidepressants often have many side effects and can also be addictive. Neither do they resolve the underlying problem which is unexpressed grief. Feelings of sadness can be overwhelming and come in waves. Having a way to process and channel those feelings is essential. Suppressing them is dangerous for your mental, emotional and physical health.
It’s so much quicker, easier and healthier to speak to a Specialist regarding grief and loss.

Another thing many don’t realise is that grief is both cumulative and negatively cumulative. Often by the time people reach out for help they have already experienced multiple losses in their life.
What we call the ‘Presenting Loss’ or the life event that has caused you to finally seek help is almost certainly not your first loss. This is why healing your heart from the start is an essential part of the process. As discussed in my previous blog anything else is simply equivalent to putting a bandaid on a broken limb.
Every client I have worked with discovered they’d experienced multiple losses. They simply had not realised how much pain they were carrying until their ‘Presenting Loss’ became the ‘straw that broke the camels back’ so to speak.
The most common response and comment from clients after doing the Grief Recovery Method is how a weight had suddenly been lifted, they felt hopeful and lighter. 100% say they highly recommend it.
