How is the Grief Recovery Method different to bereavement counselling? 

Any Loss 
 
Bereavement is the #1 reason people contact us but it's not the only life event that creates grief. Because the Grief Recovery Method acknowledges this and gives you the tools to help heal a broken heart no matter what the cause, even if someone contacts you because they have been bereaved, you can offer comprehensive support for ALL their losses. Grief is cummulative and cummulatively negative. In reality most people have multiple losses and the presenting loss is the one that leads to the realisation they need help. 
 
Head v Heart 
 
Counselling is a wonderful tool to help people discover why they feel a certain way and can help them reach an understanding of their feelings. It is our view that while an intellectual understanding takes us some way to feeling better, the human heart is not rational and doesn't respond to intellect. Therefore in order to heal hearts we need to take actions that address the heart, rather than the head. 
Actions v talking 
 
While talking about how we feel can be cathartic it can also leave us feeling "well what's changed?" As any coach will tell you it is actions that bring change. Just as talking about going to the gym doesn't get you fit, although it might get you into the right mindset - you actually need to do the exercises to get fit and to feel the benefits of being fitter. The same is true for your emotional fitness. Talking and planning can get you into the right mind set but to see results you have to take the correct actions. The Grief Recovery Method teaches the correct exercises, step by step that actually allow the release of the pain, the end to all those "I wish I'd said/not said, I wish I'd done/not done" that tend to keep grievers trapped on the mental hamster wheel of pain. 
 
Empowering 
 
The Grief Recovery Method is a set of tools that, as a Grief Recovery Specialist, you teach your client over the course. Once they have completed the course they are then empowered to use the tools as often as they need as more losses occur. This means you are teaching them a skill of real value in their future life and while they may choose to return to do more losses with you they don't have to. Right from the start they know exactly what they are in for when they book a programme with you, unlike traditional talking therapies where the number of sessions maybe open ended.

What is involved in the training? 

Grief Recovery Method Certification Training is unlike most training you will have undergone before. Working with grief is a very human experience and we like to keep the training as human as possible. Therefore we use extremely little technology in the workshop, instead most of the time you will either be listening to your instructor give information, participating in discussion or working on your own or in small groups on practical work. 

2-part programme 
Part 1 - the Personal Workshop 
 
We strongly believe that it is wrong to ask someone else to do something we haven't done ourselves. Therefore the first half of the training is a personal workshop where we ask you to temporarily park the desire to help others and help yourself. Your trainer will lead you through the Grief Recovery Method step by step as you work on a personal loss. You will also get additional information about why the steps are there to help inform you to be ready to share these steps with your future clients. 
 
Part 2 - the Certification 
 
Having completed the Grief Recovery Method we then proceed to teach you how to teach it to others, covering additional skills that you'll need along the way. 
Outcomes 
 
By the end of the programme you will be able to: 
 
understand the GRM definitions of grief 
identify the 40+ life events that invoke grief 
understand how misinformation surrounding grief and loss impedes recovery 
recognise Short Term Energy Relieving Behaviours that appear to help recovery but actually suppress it. 
understand the actions required to complete recovery 
know how to help others achieve the actions required, leading them safely through the process with compassion 
recognise that you are the guide to a person's recovery - you can't do it for them 
demonstrate how each action is achieved remembering that in Grief Recovery "leader always goes first" 
understand how to promote the benefits of Grief Recovery to maximise participation

Frequently Asked Questions 

Will I need insurance? 
 
Yes. A condition of the licence agreement between us and you as a Specialist is that you have current professional and public liability insurance. You are free to choose your provider although we do have a scheme set up with Holistic Insurance Services to provide cost effective cover (approx £60 per year). If you already have cover you should find that adding Grief Recovery is a no cost add on as we are extremely low risk. 
 
Is this a franchise? 
 
No. We have a licence agreement which sets out how we support you after your training and the rules under which you can use our brand and our programmes but there are no territories or other constrictions and costs that a franchise brings. 
 
What qualifications do I need? 
 
None. All we ask is that you have an open mind and a heart willing to help others. 
Are there further costs? 
 
The training does not include accommodation so if you are not local* and have booked in-person training you will need to budget for somewhere to stay, breakfast and an evening meal as well as your travel costs. Other than this in 12 months' time there is a licence renewal fee which includes another 12 months unlimited support and renews your website and email addresses where applicable. 
 
All other costs are optional - as each client will need a copy of the Grief Recovery Handbook we recommend you buy copies to sell on. These are available at whole sale prices after the training. There is also the option to buy other books, promotional materials, leaflets & business cards etc. None of these are compulsory. 
 
*the training is very intense so if your journey is longer than 30 minutes we recommend finding somewhere to stay.

Our Credentials 

The Grief Recovery Method Certification Training was created over 30 years ago in the USA and has since spread to every populated continent on Earth. Training started in the UK 10 years ago when American founders Russell Friedman & John W James visited to bring this revolutionary approach to this country. In 2010 Carole Henderson founded Grief Recovery UK and the training became routinely available here for the first time.
