Testimonials for our Certification Training Program

Laura understands all too well that grief must be taught and understood by the heart and not by the intellect. She is an outstanding teacher precisely because not only does she make sure that her students learn the importance of not intellectualizing grief but teaches with an understanding and compassionate heart. Laura has that rare combination of covering an enormous amount of knowledge in a four day workshop slow enough so it is not confusing while keeping a pace that makes it fun and interesting to learn. There is no doubt in this student’s mind that Laura is doing her calling. Her teaching has touched my life. For this I am forever grateful. If you have an opportunity to attend her workshop on grief recovery, take it! You will never regret it!! Truly a magical learning experience!!!

Ashley is the most amazing facilitator. She has a true passion for Grief Recovery and speaks from the heart. She is open to self disclosure which is very powerful! I learned so much from Ashley and I am so happy I had my training facilitated by her. Having completed a loss of my own through the training I am 10x more competent do go out and do this work. Although we all have our unique experiences with loss I will be able to empathize to the challenges my clients may face while on the journey to finding completion!

This training completely blew my heart and mind wide open. The Grief Recovery Method is by far the most revolutionary way to heal grief and loss and to teach people how to successfully complete relationships and get back to living and loving life after grief and loss. Ashley is the most phenomenal trainer and truly shared not just her knowledge but her incredible heart and passion for this work. I am forever grateful to have been through the training and cannot wait to bring this to everyone that I can. This is one of the most beneficial trainings I could think of for allowing people to fully heal after loss of any kind. Thank you so much for this amazing transformation and the work you do in the world.

The training exceeded my expectations. Although mildly skeptical that this process and the course content would be much different than previous grief training I have had, I found the Grief Recovery Method to be extremely helpful and effective. Not only was a I personally able to complete a relationship during this training, I learned the skills needed to complete others. Now I am very confident that I can take this process and provide individuals and groups with the tools they need to move forward. Thank you!

Within a hospice setting I facilitate grief support groups. For a couple of months I have been aware that I was becoming more emotional and had to take more breaks after the sessions. My own grief was rising to the surface. I had unfinished emotions attached to my former husband. I had things I still wanted to say to him. Going through the Grief Recovery Training opened my eyes to where my emotions were coming from and gave me a way to have completion. I was able to say the things I needed to be heard then I said goodbye. I had an ending finally.

I'm awe struck how this very simple concept truly works to complete a loss that I've been hanging on to for 50 years. I can't wait to work on my other losses. This grief recovery method is brilliant.

This training has enriched my personal life. I have learned how to deal effectively with grief and issues in my life so that they do not burden me down. I took this training because I wish to enter the profession of helping people overcome grief. I was not aware of all that grief entailed, but, I now know that grief is not just because of a loss due to death, but, there are many other areas of loss that cause a person to grieve. I am very happy to have received this training, and, I look forward to setting up practice so that I can help others have a happier, fulfilled life.

I was apprehensive about my ability to be able to facilitate a Grief Recovery program but our trainer and the materials provided have given me the confidence to begin training people in my community.

This training cuts right through the pop-psychology of grief as we have known it, and goes right to work at the emotional level where pain begins to transform into healing. The GRM is a most beneficial process to work through. It helped every member in our group.

The training was more than I expected. Laura did a fantastic job at presenting the material. She actively listened to our concerns and always provided feedback that was supported by the Institute's philosophy. My most profound moments were identifying my STERB's. I am forever grateful for the teaching. My plans are to continue my own grief work and to introduce grief recovery to my local community. I named my first two days of training - "Grief Detox." Thank you for the tools to recover from grief and move forward with life.

The Grief Recovery Method is NOT a gimmick or Oxy-Moron. It can apply to so many different losses and a variety of situations. Most impressive to me is it's universiality (?) in it's application across race and gender and age. Thank you all.

My time at the Grief Recovery Method Certification Training Program, far exceeded my expectations. I learned so much about myself and my own personal journey of grief. It was so wonderfully presented with energy, love and compassion. Well worth the time and financial investment.
