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 feel like the training assisted me with tools for myself in all kinds of loss and gave me even hope and passion for helping all kinds of people with grief and loss. I would highly recommend it for anyone.


Grief is the missing puzzle in peoples recovery with out this pice recovery can be a roller coaster.i received this training and i recommended.


Writing a testimonial on my experience with this training is hard...it's hard because the weekend impacted me on such an emotional level. In four days Steve was able to lead a group of us through our own grief journey, allowing us to feel the grief recovery method for ourselves, so that we can then go out and positively impact the lives of countless others. When we started on Friday morning I knew nothing about the grief recovery method and I only had personal experiences and myths about grief to fall back on when talking to others. By Monday afternoon I left the training feeling confident - and excited - to bring this method back home and to so many who can benefit from it. Thank you to the Grief Recovery Institute and to Steve!


I really did not know what to expect at this training. I came away with not only knowledge of grief recovery, but the love of the group that was training with me. I am so very thankful to have had the opportunity for this certification.


The Grief Recovery Method works. For me, standard therapy never worked, but the GRM has tools in place that increase interaction with understanding your losses and help you learn more about how to live a happy and more fulfilled life. I would recommend the GRM to anyone struggling, it does work.


This Grief Recovery will TRULY take you through RECOVERY. Not phases - no steps but ultimate Recovery. If you, like me, know the heaviness of what grief can do to your mind, body and soul if left unresolved, the Pure FREEDOM of it will change you and those around you forever. We live in a hurting world. Attend this perfected method and recover. Once recovered yourself, you can be a part of the blessing of setting those in unresolved grief FREE! It's AMAZING!

The GRM taught me a lot on what I thought I already knew! The process is incredibly powerful and I can see how it can help people move away from their pain onto recovery. Phyl was a great facilitator and made the experience so much more personal and close to the heart than I could have ever imagined. Thank you!


It was great, and I look forward to using what I learned in the future.


I had a great ex pereance. I finally did the recovery of my real mother. I was really emoting over the whole prosses, did not want to do it at first but it happened. I would recommend this method hyly to any one who is readdy. The method part is easer then I thought. this happen to me at the right time. I am glad that the recovery Prosses happen first.


The Grief Recovery Specialist Certification Training will prove to be one the most valuable trainings I have ever taken.


I am born after my parents lost their son. A typical example of replace the loss. After working in the training with my sister ans at home withmy parents a curious pain of the muscles in my legs occured. There was no explenation for this happening other then the work I did. So I am sure this was the effect of doing this. For the first time in my life I'm standing on my own to feet. My place and my steps are lighter now. Although it feels strange I also feel very strong and sicure after this completion. This is a present that I hoped to get and therefore I'm so grateful. I've done a lot of stuff to get myself in place, this really was the missing piece of the jig saw.


The Grief Recovery Method Training was powerful and intense. I went in with one idea of specific expectations and left with a whole different revelation! This method gets to the heart of the matter! Thank you!


I made a decision to invest in this program based on everything I read. I was worried that somehow, it would not give me enough tools to be ready to rock and roll very quickly. I fel that I was given all of the tools and the tool box. It is up to me to use them, but if I get stuck, all I have to do is ask. I am so glad I did this training.


If you have an inclination toward this field, I recommend you take this certification training to enhance and expand upon your understanding of grief and how to help care for others who are experiencing loss in their life.


Very powerful and emotional experience, delivered extremely well and sensitively. I feel much more empowered now when dealing with loss. Fantastic!


I enjoyed my discovery of the Grief Recovery Method and how to deliver it. Phyl's delivery of the training was inspirational and has left me feeling confident to "get out there" and get going! I am looking forward to helping so many with their loss!


My suggestion would be if someone would like to come for the training to come already with self experience of using the method.


The Grief Recovery Method Training has been life changing! I am SO excited to be able to share with others what we have learned. The training could not have come at a better time in my life. I am facing my father's terminal illness and my mother's mental illness at the same time. I am so grateful for the gifts that I have been given by my employer/church for sending me, and by the materials that were taught.
