Hi, I'm Kathie Powell. I retired from corporate management to really enjoy being a grandmother which I LOVE. I live in Sherwood Park, Alberta with my husband of over 40 years and our gentle giant rescue dog Wendel. I love being a wife, mother, doting grandmother to 7 amazing grandchildren, a dog mom to Wendel and an entrepreneur. I am so proud to add Advanced GRM Specialist to the list of things I love. I found my passion, helping other grievers move through the pain of their loss to feeling better using this amazing evidenced based program.
In my over 60 years on this earth I have experienced significant loss throughout my life. Some of my losses include the death of both my parents, a tragic accident of a dear friend, the death of beloved pets, moving many times and retirement. Since embarking on this journey of healing through the GRM, I have learned that there are over 40 different types of loss and that each loss is unique to each individual. Through this program I found hope again. I have also gained a vocabulary to express and voice my feelings. This program was like the missing puzzle piece for me in my journey through grief recovery. I found me. My life significantly changed for the positive after completing the GRM in August of 2020. I got my life back, the one that had been hidden in all the coping mechanisms I used to function before my grief recovery occurred. I feel more at ease in my emotions and am finding I can freely express them. I began to enjoy life again for real, no more pretending.
I have a big heart and am driven to give back. I instantly felt compelled to share this new found understanding of Grief Recovery Method (GRM) with others. There is recovery from the pain of loss. This led me to complete the training to become an Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist. I am so honoured to share the amazing tools of this program with fellow grievers and listen as that heart with ears as they move through their unique grief experience to healing from the pain they carry.
Currently I am practicing online and I love the ease of this for my clients. Being online makes it so easy to connect no matter where you live we are not limited by location. You can be in the comfort of your own space and still feel heard and connected.

The program gave me the tools I needed to resolve the relationship with my dad who passed away several years ago. It gave me insight to see how I was carrying what happened in that relationship to all the other aspects of my life. It was a lightbulb moment for me. The work was challenging but definitely worth it. I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders once I had completed the process. I am looking forward to and hopeful about resolving the other relationships in my life that I've been carrying so I can experience freedom and live my life to the fullest. Kathie was an excellent guide through the program. I am so grateful for her and the way she listened. She was a safe place for me through it all and I am incredibly thankful for her help.1-on-1 Support10/15/2021
I have carried the weight of my divorse for 20 years. I was finally able to have healing and completion. I already notice a huge difference from the first session till know. I learned that grief is not just for physical loss of a person but many different events or experiences we go through in life. I am looking forward to completing other losses, and relationships in my life.1-on-1 Online Support09/13/2021
I was able to let go of the pain and constant going over and over the relationship. I was able to see I did my best as a mom and that I never ever intended to hurt my child. I can now stop the constant going over and over how I went wrong. Now I can remember all the good times and I see they far out weighted the bad.1-on-1 Support06/16/2021
What we discussed during these four weeks makes sense but when you are in the midst of it, life feels heavy. I needed someone to articulate what I needed to do to support my child as their life drastically changed and the information was like a lightbulb. It's a no brainer what you should do, but reading it and discussing ideas and tools to inject into your parenting was exactly what I needed - not only for our situation but for the future as well.Helping Children With Loss06/05/2021
The program has helped me learn and unlearn how to properly help my children with grief. It was extremely helpful and informative!Helping Children With Loss06/05/2021
There was a lot of things that I already practiced without realizing it but I would say that there was tons of great questions to get me to my “why”/ also there were lots of good tools to help me narrow down my responses to Grief and loss which very much will help slowing down my unhealthy muscle memory habits1-on-1 Support04/19/2021
