Testimonials for our Certification Training Program

As an ordained minister, I like to think that I know a fair amount about grief and helping people who have experienced loss. However, the Grief Recovery Method is a refreshing approach that actually empowers grievers to recover in a healthy, whole-person way. I can't wait to offer Grief Recovery Method Groups at my church.

Taking the certification training has prepared me to help those I meet with deal with grief and loss that has consumed them for too long. I was personally changed and look forward to being an instrument of change in someone else’s life.

I had a fantastic experience participating in the Grief Recovery Certification Training. Not only did I process a very heavy loss that has been weighing on me, I also received immeasurable support in being able to help others on their journey to recovery.

Strongly recommend the material! It is practical, nonjudgmental and helpful.

Having wanted to do this training for over a year, it did not let me down. It was very emotionally raw but I left feeling like I was leaving such heavy weights in Brighton and that I could go forward and do so much good from what I had learned.

This training is a must-do! Grief is all around us, and we (therapists) are so often on the front lines. This method armed me for my work and I can't wait to begin using it with the people I try to help!

The Grief Recovery Method is a life-changing programme that is doing so much good in the world. This course gave me the tools to deal with my own grief and to move forward and help others. I have made lifelong friendships with the people in this course. I can't recommend it highly enough!

If you 're passionate about helping yourself and others to recover from feeling stuck, lost and broken this is amazing and will enable you to turn yourself the right way up again.☺

Well, yes: The training was so rich and giving that I'm actually thinking about shifting my business from mainly coaching to mainly grief work.

I gained so much both personally and professionally by attending The Grief Recovery Specialist training. I went with an open and and was completely blown away by the whole experience. I now feel completely at peace with grief that I now realise was unresolved. Through taking part in this I now feel energised. I feel passionate about wanting to helping others. I have met some amazing, strong and wonderful people who I now am proud to say will be my friends for life. Don't hesitate in taking part - just do it!!

I have been a nurse for the past 38 years. I wish I had known about the grief recovery method years ago. I think of all the patients and families I could have helped, as well as the earlier intervention for myself. I am very grateful that I now know about it, and for the help it gave me. I am now certified and have the tools so I can help others. This is a program that works!

The Grief Recovery Method has given me tools in enhancing my clinical knowledge and understanding to help others. My experience in this area shows how unresolved issues is a factor in mental illness and emotional stability. In moving forward, I believe grief recovery is the first step in confronting our fears in dealing with PTSD and losses. i.e. (death, divorce, careers, illness & health and aging).

I'm truly amazed at how the pain that was associated with my father was completely removed though this method - what a blessing and gift. Thank you.

Working as an Hospice Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator for over 12 years, I've facilitated hundreds of one on ones, support groups and workshops about processing grief. My tool box is huge, but I still felt that something was missing. After attending the Grief Recovery Specialist Training it is now complete. Thank you Laura for bring this work to life for me. I look forward to starting my program.

The instructor, Jocelyn Williams, was very knowledgeable on the subject and displayed that to all. Ms. Williams was more than willing to share her experiences with the group and entertain any questions that we had. I would recommend this training to anyone who is interested in learning more about grief recovery and the method used by the Institute. Great job Jocelyn and Lois.

I was able to voice with my own repressed feelings around my grief.

Sometimes we have so many losses in our lives that we can't properly deal with each loss at the time they occur. The GRM helps to determine which emotions need to be addressed. You can get to the root of whatever it is that is truly keeping you from finding joy and happiness again after a loss.

This course I would highly recommend to everyone who has had losses or just wants to help other. I have searched for counseling but still remained very broken since the loss of my three sons in the last three years. I came away from this course different in the way that I felt about each loss but also much more stringer and healed in my heart to the point of realizing how I can now help others. Ian forever grateful for the gift this course was to me and know that I can say I am equipped with the tools I need to help others.

If you're on the fence about whether to invest in the Grief Recovery Method Specialist Certification Training, do yourself a favor and ENROLL!! You'll be so glad you did! I had previously participated in a 12 week Grief Recovery Method class in my hometown. It was amazing. However, the training I received as a specialist completely equipped me with the proper tools necessary to help others heal and to identify deep rooted grief that hasn't even been identified yet. The instructors are engaging, professional and bring tons of valuable information to a personal level. We walked away from the four-day-training with confidence and completely inspired! Thank you for making this educational and emotional experience available to anyone who has a heart for assisting others in finding hope after loss of any kind!

When I took the Grief Recovery Method Training I had no idea it would take me back to evaluate my relationship with my brother. I discovered the unresolved grief I had with him began when I was 13 years old. At 56, my grief was manifesting in the form of resentments and anger. At the end of writing him a letter with apologies, forgives and significant statements, I called him and apologized and we both had a good cry on the phone. I am now in the process of rebuilding my relationship with my brother because of taking this training.

Jocelyn embodied the essence of the Grief Recovery Method and was able to present the class information in a fluid understandable way. The training course was a life changing experience and converted me into a believer in the Method. The work is worth the journey!

The certification training was very well organized, executed and processed. The training model was exceptional.

8 members of my immediate family have died, 4 by disease and 4 by murder. I had the advantage of a family that was not afraid to discuss the pain of grief. The Grief Recovery Method validated some of the practices we learned and corrected others. One professional directed me to the "stages of Grief" but i could not see them happening in me. The Grief Recovery Method has solidified the lessons learned through experience. I feel validated, supported. I still have work to do myself yet I am now prepared to do it. I feel ready to help others complete their pain and cherish their good memories!

07/24/2018

This training was phenomenal!! I learned so much in this training that helped me personally, but also learned from this so I can help others work through their grief experiences! Very good information throughout the training and it helped me learn the common misconceptions we have about grief. Amazing training and definitely worth the money to attend!
