I found this program to be beneficial to me not just in coping with the loss of my own pet but providing me with resources to help my clients deal with the loss of their pets as well. Working in oncology in a veterinary specialty facility means that each one of my patients is likely to have a terminal disease, and owners need to come to terms with losing their pet. I feel that I am now more capable of talking through grief with owners and providing them with healthy ways to cope with their loss, rather than just sending them to a website or home with a brochure.

It wasn’t until I met with Gwen did I realize what “grief” actually meant. Gwen is the most compassionate person I have ever met. She is kind, understanding, non-judgmental and so caring. Gwen explained the Grief Recovery Method and the work involved over the next 6 weeks. I immediately signed up to meet with her one-on-one. Finally, a safe place where I could cry and openly talk about my pet losses and not feel judged or crazy. Why was this grief for my dogs more paralyzing to me than I had for some “human” relatives I recently lost? Working with Gwen and going through the suggested exercises in “The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss” was invaluable. The chapters on creating a Relationship Graph, discussing Recovery Categories (apology, forgiveness and emotional statements) and the Completion Letter at the end of the program was life changing for me. There are no words to adequately describe how Gwen helped me through the most difficult time in my life. The key to this program was having an experienced and compassionate listener who made me feel safe and comfortable when I was pouring my heart and soul out. This program will help you gain valuable tools and insight to help you decide if and when you want to welcome another pet into your life. My heart is at peace now. Yes, I still get sad every so often but I don’t get “stuck” in that sadness like I use to. I can now recall stores of Oreo and Spencer and smile (or even shed a few tears) because my heart is no longer shattered.
