What is a Grief Coach
Coaching is the only co-creative partnership model: Let me find out what you know first.
Psychotherapy and counseling ascribe to the more hierarchical model: I know what you need. Grief Coaches have an expertise in deep active listening, to what is being said and not said. We ask questions to clarify your individual thinking to evoke new insights, needs, wants, beliefs, and companion alongside you through the process of sorrow without leading the way.
Navigating grief is the transition to mourning as you realize what your life will now be. This process should not be hurried. Sorrow is the counter-weight of love and therefore should be given the grace it deserves. To rest in the wound is to know it’s depth. In this way you honor the person who has died, and given yourself permission to authentically feel.
