Grief isn't just about death and divorce.

People can grieve over anything or anyone they’ve lost. And, how they cope with these mental and emotional changes impacts every choice they make...

  • Is someone you know hurting from losing a job? 
    Disappointment and anger make it hard to find the energy to look for a new job or consider a new career.
  • Is someone you know struggling to turn around a once profitable business? 
    Worrying over recent performance and fear of further losses can be debilitating.
  • Is someone you know broken-hearted from the end of a romantic relationship?
    Fear from the past keeps people from opening themselves to new love.
  • Is someone you know afraid to try new things because of past failure?
    Regret holds people back from exploring new possibilities.
  • Is someone you know struggling with sudden or chronic health issues?
    Frustration and fear make it hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Benefits of using the Grief Recovery Method (GRM) as a professional or just someone who wants to make a difference with others


There are multitudes of others out there with offerings. Having a grief certification by the Grief Recovery Method provides an invaluable service that is different and
highly effective.

A more effective
and strategic practice

Since unresolved grief is a block to reaching goals, having the right tools to navigate grief allows for more effective outcomes.

Evidence based

Providing the Grief Recovery Method, a programme backed by research, is an advantage to both you and your
potential clients.

Networking for referrals

The GRM can provide a bridge to build referral networks between all those who want to make a difference regarding
mental wellbeing.

Client referrals

Historically, more than 50% of people who have gone through the Grief Recovery Method have been referred by others who had life changing outcomes themselves. This is because the GRM often solves problems other wellbeing offerings do not address.

Grief Recovery Institute

The GRI has been established for more than 40 years and has a recognisable brand and exceptional reputation. By completing our Grief Certification Training, you are associated with a wealth of experience
and resources.
