Hello I’m Chris McIndoe. I am an Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist, based in the North West of England.
My professional life has centred around providing high quality holistic care. During the 20 years of my nursing career I have cared for and supported both patients and families, often through the most difficult times in their lives. In 2015 I made the transition into the funeral industry, which enabled me to continue this supporting role and work with grieving families, often in crisis situations. Through this work I was introduced to the Grief Recovery Method and was inspired. Working as an Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist consolidates my professional and personal experiences with loss from a very young age. This means that I am well placed to help others on their Grief Recovery journey in a sensitive, confidential and non-judgemental way. I have had the privilege of working with a wide variety of clients, dealing with grief caused by bereavement, divorce and many of the 40 + causes of grief.
I offer Grief Recovery Method sessions both in person and online, for 1-1 sessions as well as in-person groups for up to 8 people. I am also available for public speaking events and open to other enquiries.
If you are currently dealing with loss of any kind and feel ready to let go of the pain that it is causing, please feel free to contact me and we can take the first steps together.
Chris was very knowledgeable about the grief recovery method, she showed real passion for the subject. She was able to demonstrate real empathy for the participants in the group as they struggled with their own unresolved griefHelping Children With LossParticipant in Lytham, Preston01/08/2024
I embarked on the GRM with an open mind. I felt apprehensive but hopeful that it would help with the grief I had been experiencing. And it has. I feel I have gained a real and effective “coping kitbag” to be able to work through the grievances life brings: big and small. Chris is wonderful. She has such a way that makes you feel you can be completely open and honest, without analysis, without judgement and ultimately helps get the most out of the programme. I highly recommend.One-on-One SupportParticipant in Lytham, Lancashire12/16/2022
I feel like something has shifted but not as much as I’d hoped yet - this might be because my grief is connected to other losses which I haven’t worked on yetOne-on-One Online SupportParticipant in Macclesfield, Cheshire11/13/2022
I entered the programme because I wanted to deal with problems in a relationship, the root of the problems was historical. I wanted to try to find a better way forward. Working with Christine allowed me to explore the past in a safe and positive way. On completion of the programme, I have gained understanding and insight and feel confident in a better future for the relationshipOne-on-One Support05/18/2022
The program has really opened my eyes in how I view grief and I will 100% use it for other grief areas in my life, it has allowed me to accept the loss and grief and come to terms with my feelings.One-on-One Online Support12/19/2021
