Helping People Cope

The purpose of Personal Grief Coaching is helping people cope with their loss  based on each individual's unique situation and concerns. Everyone grieves in his or her own way after the death of a loved one. Here are examples of issues and challenges for which people commonly seek help (this is not an all-inclusive list)
  • Experiencing intense and painful emotions
  • Dealing with life in the face of loss and change
  • Handling family and social relations
  • Finding meaning in what has happened
  • Understanding the roles the deceased played in one's life
  • Considering the nature of one's relationship with the deceased
  • Memorializing the deceased
  • Looking toward the future
