Testimonials for our Certification Training Program

In the certification training, we were given the opportunity to delve deeply into the method by reflecting on our own losses and relationships, and completing the actions of Grief Recovery. I have now experienced directly how deeply healing this method is, and I am really glad I attended. Before taking the certification course, I had my doubts as to whether I would feel competent doing this work after only four days of training, but Laura's expert instruction along with all of the reading and reference materials that were given to us with detailed instruction for conducting both the one-on-one and group formats gave me a firm foundation and the confidence I needed to begin sharing this work with my community.

Formerly serving in the U.S. Marines, my ability to share feelings and remorse remain limited. The truth regarding existence of subterranean feelings and grief have blossomed into a working, growing, and fruitful garden. Quite often, gardens need some fertilizer to flourish...and my garden certainly held a huge pile of potential. Thank you , GRSCT, for allowing me to be human, that I might help my fellow community members.

I had a tremendously powerful experience uncovering a hidden loss that was very painful. The Grief Recovery Method helped me free myself from the pain and burden of that loss.

The Training was intense and helpful both personally and professionally. We had a wonderful group and an exceptional trainer. We not only learned from our instructor, Laura was fantastic, we also learned from each other, something that was constantly encouraged. Thank you.

I came to the weekend, with a bit of trepidation. I have resisted working on my brother's Suicide for seventeen years. I would start and stop, as it was too overwhelming. I prayed that God would give me the perfect instructor that I could trust, and he did. I really didn’t believe I could be from the torment and destructive behavior I subjected myself through for so many years. Laura, gently, sensitively, yet confidently guided me through the process, when support was needed. I can say that I am free. I can for the first time in 17 years celebrate. I Know that I can facilitate this method with conviction and confidence, because it works. Thank you Laura.

The Grief Recovery Method allowed me to heal from an incomplete loss in a way that I never imagined possible! It is action focused and prioritizes ownership and vulnerability. It's magical and worth every penny.

The Grief Recovery training is invaluable! The experiential nature of the training makes this method and work rich and personal. And it works! That is the most exciting thing to me -- having a tool to teach people that is effective and healing.

The Grief Recovery Specialist Training is well worth the time and financial commitment. Processing my own grief reminded me to continue working on my own losses and gave me tools to help others

To call this certification class "a positive experience" would be an understatement. Fellow classmates become lifelong friends and confidantes. The process is extraordinary, cathartic and important. I was skeptical at first but, I am a true believer. I can't wait to share with anyone and everyone!

The Certification training was life changing, emotional, powerful, profound and many new relationships and networking was established. I'm glad I pursued this.

Lois Hall is a gift, not only to the grief recovery community, but to the world. Her passion for helping others heal from loss and live a full live is contagious. After 14 years as a professional counselor, the grief recovery method is the best program I have discovered to help others connect with their heart again and heal from losses. I would not hesitate to recommend this training!

I would highly recommend the Grief Recovery Method Certification for anyone who works with people. I thought I was coming to learn about a program but I left with a new lease on life because of the process. The GRM is not about death; its about living fully.

The Grief Recovery Method is truly a life changing, value tool that will be an asset for any professional. I have several certifications and have taken numerous classes. The Grief Recovery Method Training is the most beneficial and can be applied to everyone. We all grieve.

I absolutely loved the experience of becoming a GRM specialist. I have felt immense growth in personal and professional from taking this training. I look forward to all the people I can help heal from this experience. I HIGHLY recommend taking this training course to anyone who deals with the loss of life or marriage within your career.

Going through the Grief Recovery Method training has been a very rewarding experience for me on a personal level. Doing the Loss History Graph, the Relationship Graph, the Final Statement, and the Completion Letter have worked wonders for my personal journey through my grief and loss. This is a program that I will recommend to every person who's dealing the many loss that life throws at us. If you are dealing with the challenges of your own personal loss - whatever those challenges may be - going through the Grief Recovery Method program will change your life, and help you to regain control of your everyday experiences.

My experience at the training was overwhelmingly positive. The trainer’s patience, compassion, and empathy with us, individually and as a unit, was in evidence all throughout the training. The emotional honesty each person shared turned 14 strangers into a family - I have never experienced this type of transformation so totally so quickly.

As a pastor, I had been using the Grief Recovery Handbook to help members of my church deal with death and divorce. (Even though the Handbook explicitly says not to - see page 2 - I apologize GRM!) I finally decided to get certified and was amazed at how much I still needed to learn as well as discover some of the mistakes I was doing in using the Method. On a personal note, taking the training revealed a blindspot to me that I was engaging in the Myth of "Be Strong for Others." As a pastor I am comfortable being there to support grievers, but never take the time to deal with my own grief. After 11 years of holding onto grief, I was finally able to feel safe enough share my emotions over the loss of my dad.

I have had the desire to take this Training Course for 7 years. But life and finances did not permit until now. Let me tell you, it was worth every penny spent and budget cut I took to make it! I honestly, cannot imagine, enjoying it any better, or learning what I hoped too. My Instructor (Bobbie Rill) was AMAZING! I truly feel confident in the process and in what I learned in just a few days, to carry this message forward to as many people as I can. The class time is well spent, the materials are presented with ease and if you have a willing heart, you will learn and gain much! ~ I came away READY to hold my First 8 Week Session ~ You Will Too!

Working with patient and family dealing with Chronic and Serious illness for 10 plus years, this method works if you are true to your self and follow it seriously!

09/11/2018

Without a doubt this is a phenomenally effective method and a noble cause which I am honored to now be trained in. It helped me tremendously when nothing else has and I am so inspired and excited to be able to truly help others in the future.

I had a really good experience at my 4 day training. It was hard work and emotional but well worth the time and energy. It changed my life.

Provided coping tools to understand the grief process and start living life again instead of merely existing.

08/29/2018

I found the Grief Recovery Method Training to be applicable, genuine and very helpful. I wish I had found this program 20 years ago when my Dad died, it could have spared me years of fatigue, grief and confusion. Thank you for this superb training.

08/28/2018

Wow--just "recovering" from my 4-day training. Tons of information shared during the training that was in addition to the material shared in the handbook and will be helpful in presentations. It's going to take some time to "sink in." The material supplied was exceptional. The sincerity of the presenter (Jocelyn) was evident from the time of our introductions. I would highly recommend the experience.
