As a child of divorce, I experienced at a young age, a deep sense of loss - loss of safety, of trust, and of family. It left a hole in my heart, not knowing I was suffering from grief. I made my life small, never feeling enough and safe in the world.
I have first hand experience with self-sabotaging behaviors, suffered from body dysmorphia, and alcohol abuse.
I have had pets die which has been painful and heartbreaking. Too many to list.
When I heard about the Grief Recovery Method, and what it could do to heal my grief and broken heart, I knew intuitively that this experience would guide me to a happier more fulfilling life.
Through my Advanced Grief Recovery Method training, I found hope, love and understanding of the grief process. My life-changing experience propelled me to pivot professionally and acquire the deep and comprehensive training that now enables me to guide others who feel alone, find new meaning in their lives, and to live their lives to their fullest potential.
I attended GRM as I unexpectedly lost my mother and had a very positive experience going through the course. As a result, I am at peace with her passing and feel a sense of closure I wouldn't otherwise have had. It has enabled me to go through her estate with a different attitude and approach - objectively able to review her and our family's lives. I'm feeling sentimental at times when I discover various treasures but in a good way. Claudia Gill has been a pleasure to work with. She is empathetic and compassionate and I don't know how I would've gotten through this period without her. She would check in on me in between the sessions to see if I was doing ok and always available if needed. She was genuinely concerned for my well-being. Being vulnerable and showing my feelings doesn't come naturally, but I always felt safe with her and have grown immensely through doing this work with her. I've learned I was never allowed to have a voice growing up until my mother's death, but now finding it again and taking the steps to become an even stronger version of myself. She's a wonderful asset to your team of facilitators and I highly recommend her.One-on-One Support01/25/2021
I feel that this program helped me complete some complicated feelings about my father that have been upsetting to me and contributing to a sense of low-grade impotence and despair. Do feel a bit lighter and that possibility is more available to me.One-on-One Online Support12/31/2020
It has been over a year since my Mom passed away. I was producing a podcast - Life In The A-Zone where I share my bittersweet stories of love, life and loss as my mother's caregiver from her diagnosis of Alzheimer's to her death. As I wrote and shared the stories I was struggling with so many feelings and knew I needed counseling to help me heal through the process. The grief recovery process allowed me to heal the loss of my mother in a profound way. It has been a gift to do this work with Claudia who created a safe space for me to walk through my feelings and come out stronger on the other side.One-on-One Online Support12/10/2020
