Grief Coaching

 You Deserve to be Heard in Your Grief,

...no matter what that grief may be. By shifting the focus from grief as a problem to be solved to an experience to be tended, providing you what you need: understanding, compassion, validation, and a way through the pain.


Grief is a natural response to intense sorrow, especially caused by someone’s death or a great loss. Feelings of grief are not experienced exclusively through the death of someone. Sometimes you may feel loss when a relationship ends or when a relationship wasn't as it should be.  You may feel loss when someone you care about is terminally ill, someone you care about moves away, loss of an animal, loss of a job, loss of your home and even loss of a personal dream.  Grief Coaching provides an effective way to learn to cope with the stress associated with the loss and to manage symptoms so that you can heal and cope with the loss.


 How Does Grief Affect People?

1. Grief can affect people in different ways. Grief may leave you feeling deeply sad, angry or alone. You may find yourself feeling numb and detached from everything around you. Feeling bitterness and resentment is also commonly associated with grief. This can lead to a lack of joy in life.

The Mayo Clinic lists these emotional symptoms found with grief. These can include:

  • Increased irritability
  • Numbness
  • Bitterness
  • Detachment
  • Preoccupation with loss
  • Inability to show or experience Joy

While these emotional symptoms are normal in the days and weeks after the loss, they can be indicators of a more serious disorder if they do not fade over time.  Contact your doctor if you experience any severe emotional symptoms.

2. Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time. It’s natural to feel a yearning for the other person, even if it was a negative relationship in your life. Regret and guilt can also come into play. Depending on the type of grief you are going through you may have a strong feeling about how the persons’ connection to you ended. While these emotional symptoms are normal in the days and weeks following grief, should they persist over a long period of time it is worth reaching out to a helping hand.

3. Physical symptoms of grieving are very real. It may come as a surprise that grief is not entirely emotional. There are very real effects that grief can have on the body.

 Some of the physical symptoms of grieving, according to the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, are:

  • Digestive problems
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Chest pain
  • Sore muscles

Though these symptoms are normal during the grieving process, you should remember to contact your doctor if you experience any severe physical symptoms.

4. You can expect that going through grief can leave you unable to attend work, school or any social events for a period of time. If this is an ongoing response, then their grief may lead to more concerning physical and mental health issues.


How can I Help?

 

The most inaccurate of statements is the commonly used, ‘’time heals all wounds.’’ The truth is that when it comes to grief, time heals only a little. When you lose someone or something that was significant to you, it can feel as if there is no way of moving forward without them or without it. Healing from grief does not mean that you will stop feeling the loss inside of you or fill the void that is open. Healing from grief means that you learn to live around it. You remember the good times and the positive aspects, you surrender to the ending of that time and draw strength from the pain and anguish you have been through.

 

When you are ready to reach out for a helping hand. When you are ready to start your journey of healing, there is kindness and support waiting for you. As your coach, I hold space for you where you can work through your emotions and understand your journey.
