Grief cannot be fixed, but there are ways to help.
Grief Guide Consulting offers assessment, education, and counseling to help grievers, professionals, and organizations understand the grief process and navigate loss.
What We Do
Assess and develop a supportive response to the grief needs of your organization or community.
Grief is a natural response to loss; a process that can be understood and a skill that can be taught.
Grief is a journey; when the path is unfamiliar or uncertain, it can be helpful to have a guide.
Understanding the Grief Process
Benefits for Helping Professionals
Overcome the awkwardness of not knowing what to say when patients and clients express grief emotions related to significant loss.
Advance the quality of your care by learning simple yet compassionate responses, tools, and interventions that offer guiding support.
Improve relationships with patients or clients by understanding the grief process and developing skills that help others navigate a difficult journey.
Excel as a preferred health care provider in the wellness industry by knowing appropriate responses to the grief emotions that are natural loss reactions.
Why Helping Professionals Need Grief Education Services
EVERY patient who is navigating a life-changing or life-ending diagnosis is grieving.
EVERY client talking to a therapist about a painful loss is grieving.
EVERY person facing a major life transition is ending a familiar season of life and they are grieving.
And yet, most academic programs do not adequately instruct helping professionals on how to respond to the normal grief responses intertwined with treatment.
As a result many professionals ignore or minimize natural grief emotions, not due to lack of care but because they are unequipped to offer a skilled response.
