If you are reading this, it likely means that you, or someone close to you, is suffering from a broken heart. It may have been caused by the death of a family member, friend, or beloved pet. It may have been caused by a divorce, break-up, or an estranged relationship. Or it may have been caused by the loss of a job, a move, or any number of other losses. This sense of loss and the emotional pain you are feeling is the normal and natural reaction to any major change in life!
Grief is emotional, not logical
The grief that comes with emotional loss can be overwhelming and incredibly isolating. You may find the people you normally count on for emotional support are ill equipped when it comes to offering effective and meaningful help. You will often hear logical reasons why you should not feel bad, but that rarely helps because grief is emotional and not intellectual! You are suffering from a broken heart, not a broken head! The fact you are seeking help in dealing with grief is not a sign of weakness, but rather a recognition on your part you are interested in taking recovery actions!
Private, Comfortable Setting
While some people prefer to work in a group setting with other grievers, many find it easier to work with a trained GRM Specialist one-on-one. This allows you the privacy to discuss your emotional pain, with someone who has used the same tools they are offering you, in order to deal with heartbreak that has impacted your life.
Our GRM Specialists are trained and certified to help create a safe environment for you to discover and complete the emotional pain of any type of loss, and they become a "heart with ears" to listen and support you through the Grief Recovery Method process without analysis, criticism or judgment.
Learn how to recover from loss with supportive one-on-one guidance every step of the way.

Reviews for Grief Recovery Method One-on-One Support
The program has helped to work through my grief and see that there is a better and brighter future. The loss of my close friend put me into a slump, but this program pushed me to complete that part of my life and learn to move forward while still remembering my fond memories of my friend.Participant in Saipan, MP03/30/2023
When I was first given the book by a counsellor, I reluctantly started to read it. I was reluctant because I had researched grief and believed that my problems were centred around grief, but I didn't really fit into the model of the 7 stages of grief...so I gave up on the idea of grief until I started to read your book. When I first starting reading the book, I was skeptical because the book initially seemed too simplified, and I initially thought that the book would really have nothing to offer me, but none the less I continued to read it, and do the activities. What I didn't have was a partner to work with and initially, as part of my scepticism, I thought it will be fine to do this on my own. I got to the part of the book where I would write my loss graph and I dutifully mapped out my loss graph, and suddenly when looking at it on paper, I realized the magnitude of my losses and grief. It suddenly became very clear to me that, indeed, I am suffering deep loss and grief. It was also at this point that I realized that the book had a great deal to offer and in fact was not oversimplified. In fact, I realized that there was no way I was going to be able to do this alone, and that I needed direction and guidance to find my way through this ocean of grief. I emailed the institute and was willing to travel from Canada to take a workshop or do sessions with someone qualified in this method, and my email was promptly returned saying that there was a grief specialist in my area. I reviewed the different counsellors and choose one. I have not looked back. Marcia and I started at the beginning and even that was helpful because I realized how much misinformation I had and I also began to really think about my STERBS in meaningful ways. When I initially did the work on my own I was dismissive, so it was only once I got into the loss graphs that I fully understood how those first chapters are critical to my understanding and my relationship with grief and loss. I came to this program after suffering a deep loss around my divorce three years ago. I was consumed by this loss, stuck, paralyzed for 3 years...I couldn't navigate my way through it. I was critical of myself that still after 3 years, I was not moving on. I told my story of grief and woe so often to anyone who would listen that even I was tired of my story of grief and woe. Interestingly, I did not begin my first relationship graph with this loss, I started with the loss of my relationship with my father. A toxic relationship that I suffered through my entire lifetime, and still suffered through as I approach 60 years old. Going through this process and dealing with the relationship of my father has released me in ways that I never imagined possible. Dealing with this particular grief has started to ease me from my stuckness. The image I like to use is for the last three years I have been encased in sand with only my head sticking out. Unable to move, but after dealing with this first and important loss, the sand is falling away, I can move a little, there is some ability now to make decisions and to feel that I am healing. So even though I haven't yet dealt with my most significant loss, dealing with this one has provided me a way to begin navigating my life post divorce. I will be forever thankful that I no longer carry the burden of the toxic relationship with my father into my future. Releasing me has saved me and now I am feeling confident that I can move forward and there is hope and faith that the future will be ok. I have not felt that the future holds anything but despair for three years now. I am going to be ok. My next step is to deal with my loss of my marriage, but funnily enough, I am changing the name of the loss. Initially I called it "Steve", but now I realize that it is not "Steve" that I lost, but my marriage. I don't have to give up "Steve", but I do have to let go of wishful thinking, the hope of more or better as it relates to my lost marriage. I was reluctant to even deal with this loss a couple of months ago because it was still so raw that I thought I wouldn't be able to do it, but now I know I can, and more importantly, I am ready to do it. I also know that once I start the process of dealing with the loss of my marriage that many of the other losses will also come into play. Financial loss, life style loss, friends and family loss...an ocean of losses I will be released from so that I can move forward without laying a claim to what could have been. It is this "could have been" that I am grieving...and just knowing this has released me of my despair.Participant in Calgary, Alberta03/23/2023
The program helped me to move forward but never forget Sergio. Some of the homework was hard and I honestly didn’t have any interest in it but then I found that everything just poured out. Anna Cook my facilitator was absolutely amazing.Participant in Solvang, CA03/22/2023
I learned how one incident affects another situation without us even realizing it. Once I figured that out, I got to work in each situation individually.Participant in Wheatland, Wyoming03/16/2023
The idea of completing grief should be taught from a very early age. The incorrect strategies we are taught create so many more issues on top of the grief. I did this program because my therapist recommended it as my only way forward, either I complete it with her, or I complete it elsewhere, because I kept coming back with the same complaint: I'm not happy and I should be. I have a great life and on paper, I know this. But the feelings of joy and happiness were so muddled and I couldn't figure out why. I knew I had experienced many major losses, most in the last few years (I practically used the list of types of losses as a checklist if I'm being honest..death of pets: check, death of parent: check, major job loss: check, divorce: check, moving: check...you get the idea.) With no mental health insurance, I chose to complete it elsewhere, but I did it so that I could go back to therapy with her. It started as a means to an end. I can't say I was skeptical, I just simply "had to get it done." She and the GRM specialist I did the program with told me it was life-changing. I figured if I could stop being sad about one or two things, it might be a success. What happened was so much more. Although the homework often felt silly, each step of the way I learned something new about myself and each step, even the earliest ones, helped me realize I could close the door on some of the losses I'd experienced. Learning these steps of completion, in a structured Step A, Step B, Step C way puts the chaos of emotions into a useable, organized box so you can unpack it the right way. I've already recommended this to multiple people and I will continue to do so. There isn't a person out there that can't benefit from this information and having the skills to possibly complete grief as it happens instead of letting it accumulate can only create happier humans. Happier humans are better humans and the world needs that.Participant in Garden City, KS03/15/2023
I have been holding on to hurt by my parents for a long time. This program has helped me let go and move forwardParticipant in Garden City, KS02/26/2023
The later stages of the workshop were especially helpful in guiding me towards a less consuming sense of loss. The facilitator I worked with was super supportive and made sure that I felt safe and not alone. She encouraged me to dig up and write about my feelings rather than just my thoughts.Participant in Auburn, California04/02/2023
The program went deep and made me aware of several childhood issues I had carried all my life. It was a great journey of self development and to get in touch with some unaddressed emotions. I felt relief after the program and lighter.Participant in online via, Zoom03/21/2023
When I first began the Grief Recovery Method, my grief was in one big emotional soup pot. By following the GRM with Denise, my emotions became organized and I have been able to come to terms with the different aspects of my loss. This process has brought such relief to me and I can now move forward with the future. I am grateful and recommend this program.Participant in Londonderry, NH03/14/2023
The program helped me process the issues that I was still struggling with in regards to my divorce. I found that taking the time to go back through my timeline, helped me let go of negative aspects that were holding me back.Participant in online, online03/12/2023
After my father died, I realized I needed new skills and tools to address my grief. The Grief Recovery Method program as well designed, each week built upon the previous lessons. It was a privilege to work with my facilitator Kristy Anderson who is exceptional. Kristy's commitment to creating a safe, confidential and honest environment allowed me to relax and focus on the assignment and learning the new skills and tools presented in the program. It is rare, in life, to be truly listened to, Kristy has a gift she gave me her full attention and presence. I am grateful for her willingness to share her expertise and support me through being complete with a relationship that was so dear to me. I will highly recommend the program and working with Kristy.Participant in Charlotte, North Carolina03/11/2023
