Testimonials for our Certification Training Program

I attended this training to further help me deal with the loss in my life & to create another avenue to help others. The information presented has covered both areas. If the other coaches are as good as my coach, Laura Jack, then everyone taking this seminar is going to be pleased.


I will use the Grief Recovery Method in my work with clients. The training has provided me with a golden toolkit that will increase the outcomes of my clients significantly. Thank you Laura and the GRI!


The training and the trainer were amazing! I went into it with a fair amount of skepticism, however after completing the training I truly feel changed in how I view and feel about the loss of my mother. I feel more energized than I have felt in months and look forward to sharing what I learned with others dealing with grief. I highly recommend the grief recovery method!


The Grief Recovery Method ranks up there with "all the things we should have learned in school but didn't." Every person will encounter grief in their life, and this process should be required learning in life. The only thing better than applying its wisdom and value to your own life is becoming a Grief Recovery Specialist and passing that healing forward to others. Steven Reeder Certified Professional Coach


Having been a silent griever for many years but never knew how to go about a recovery, the opportunity to learn more about the grief recovery method was too good an opportunity to miss. However even before then I had thought that if I ever got the opportunity to help others in the future and learn from my experience then I would as there was nothing available when I first started to grieve. As I went through the course, I was struck by how many other people might also suffer in silence, so I decided that this was something I wanted to focus on once the course was complete. I am pleased to be a certified instructor now and can't thank my instructor enough for opening me up to the opportunity to learn the Grief Recovery Method it has certainly been an intense but worthwhile journey and I would recommend it to anyone who is suffering as it has already changed my life for the better.


I attended the Grief Recovery Training as both a widow and a therapist. My "tools" only helped me to a point, but this method has taken me to a different place, a place of peace. Really looking forward to working with clients and helping them find their peace.


My Training was concise and well organized. Laura Jack is an excellent facilitator and knew how to stay on target. Really helped me feel confidant about my decision to do this as my new vocation.


It was a great experience, it gave me a new goal in life and the possibility to share the method with others !!!!


Highly recommended, it is incredible what we can achieve in such a short time for ourselves and others.


My heart has quieted and grown. I have the tools because of taking part and learning the Grief Recovery Method to become the change I want to see in the world and to effect change in others.


The training was very helpful. From what I have seen so far I am impressed with the philosophy and approach which presents grief as a normal part of life and provides non-"therapeutic" tools for completing the losses associated with grief.


I just completed The Grief Recovery Specialist Certification Training in Pittsburgh, PA. I loved working and training in a group setting. While we learned we also worked on past losses that we experienced in life. Through this experience and training we really came to appreciate the beauty of each person in the group and understanding the gift of how this really works in recovering your happiness after the pain of loss. Grief recovery is healing hearts that have been broken from loss. I really look forward to working with and helping others in the future with this certification.


This program helped me tremendously! I am a 56-year-old woman who had some trauma as a child. And I have kept it ALL hidden inside for all of these years. I was affected by these unresolved communications--in my behaviors, my relationships, and the way that I communicated with others. And lastly, I was angry! During the GRM training, I was able to open up, share, and put hose negative feelings from the trauma to rest. I found closure, and completion. I felt FREE! So, the process, and the techniques work--if you want it to work, and if you want help. And I did. So, thank you for the opportunity and the great experience. I plan to share this with others, and apply it.


The Grief Recovery Method Training was great! I learned a wealth of information that I can use in my everyday life, as well as in times of grief. I feel very prepared. Lois Hall has such a vibrance about her that makes her an amazing trainer. She is so knowledgeable and patient. I had a great experience and I can't wait to use the materials to begin my first group!


The grief recovery method training was intense and incredible. I was able to identify and work through my own loss and in doing so learned how to help others. I also created frienahips with some amazing people. Walking in I didn't know what to expect and wasn't anticipating the amount of emotions I had. This process allowed me to gently unpack the past and put it all away. Thank you Lois, all the attendees, and the grief recovery method for allowing me to participate. I will now go forward and help others. Rebecca Voelker


Trough the training sessions I could better see and feel the grieve of people and search for mine, and clearly take notice of the help the Grieve Recovery Method give when the person is willing and open enough to make their own recovery.


For me personally the safety and confidentiality created by our trainer meant I was able to touch on parts of my life whose impact I'd almost forgotten and be heard for the first time. No pressure, no embarrassment. This is truly powerful and transformative work.


I love the simplicity of the method and that it's non-analytical. Very powerful.

These four days had such a big impact on me. Through my life with losses and grief I always felt there had to be something better for people. I was thrilled to learn the tools that the Grief Recovery Certification training taught me. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to be in the moment with loss and grief. I can highly recommend this training program to anyone who seeks further knowledge and the ability to help others through difficult times.


I'm not sure what I thought the experience would be, but I quickly saw the value in it. It was a unique experience that benefited me personally and professionally.


I have completed the loss of my father whom abandoned us as children. It is such a wonderful feeling!


The Grief Recovery Specialist Certification Training far exceeded my expectations. I am a widow and lead a widows support group. My desire was to further equip myself with tools to further assist widows to move from surviving to thriving.

I would highly recommend it for anyone.
