Learn how to help others with grief following death, divorce and any other losses. 

A word from a Specialist 

Aoife Douglas Grief Recovery Specialist
 
Debi Richens 
Certified in 2019 
 
I have a friend, an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist, who observed me supporting members of my alienated grandparents group, who told me I should train as I was doing it instinctively, and it would give me an opportunity of creating an independent income for myself. As an alienated parent and grandparent I was living with the grief of my loss on a daily basis and although it was easier than past years, there was still a lot in my life that I didn’t need to be carrying around. 
 
I signed up within days of the conversation, and when my training pack arrived I devoured the book from cover to cover, it made so much sense. During training, I was blown away by how in-depth it was and the changes I noticed over the few days of being with such a widely diverse group of trainees was a joy to experience, as it really showed the true power of GRM. Within a few days of completing the training I noticed that I had started to sleep properly and at 54, that was a complete shock to me. I haven’t slept properly since I was an infant. I have only had two disturbed nights since and now regularly put my head on the pillow going straight to sleep, no more books to read, or writing, or just lying there awake! I also noticed a huge difference in my fibromyalgia pain levels, such a huge bonus as I am allergic to pain medication, so had nothing else. My life is changing irrevocably, and I am not looking back! 
 
I have recently started to see my own clients and am amazed at the wonderous journeys they are taking on their road to recovery…this has been the seminal most important change in my life.

11 Reasons to Choose Grief Recovery Certification Training If you are looking to invest in your ability to help others then you want to know you're choosing wisely. Here are some of the best reasons to choose our programme over any other course

1. Any loss 

You will learn the process and techniques to help people move beyond ANY loss. While bereavement is the most common reason people seek help, those grieving other significant losses such as divorce, pet loss, job loss, loss of health and over 40 other life events that invoke grief can benefit hugely from the Grief Recovery Method. 

2. Learn quickly 

Because the Grief Recovery Method is psychological education not therapy, we can train you to lead people safely through it in our intensive 4 day training.. 

3. Reputable 

Because the Grief Recovery Method is psychological education not therapy, we can train you to lead people safely through it in our intensive 4 day training.. 

4. Immediate 

You can start working with clients as soon as you have completed training, in fact one of our graduates drove straight to her first client meeting at the close of day 4! 

5. Accessible 

No previous qualifications are necessary as Grief Recovery Certification Training is a complete qualification in its own right. The only pre-requisites are a willingness to help others and an open mind. 

6. Ongoing support 

While we can teach you a lot in 4 days we can’t teach you everything so we include unlimited support /supervision via phone or Zoom at no extra charge. 
This means that when you start work with clients you know we’ve got your back. 
You’ll also have access to closed Facebook groups to interact with others who have completed the training from all over the globe. 

7. Lived experience 

All our Instructors are highly experienced at delivering the Grief Recovery Method to grieving people in their private practice as well as delivering the Certification Training. Each of them came to the work because they experienced significant emotional loss themselves and realised the power and transformational nature of the Method. 

8. Life changing training 

The 4 day workshop is a mix of experiential and interactive sessions which combine to create an uplifting and motivational experience which many of our graduates 
describe as life changing. 

9. Structured programmes 

Because the programmes you qualify to deliver are structured, you and your clients will know exactly what time they need to commit to complete the process. This is particularly helpful for charities, hospice, education or co-production settings where resources are finite and need careful planning. 

10. Global brand 

Once you have completed your training you will have access to free Marketing Support to help you get your Grief Recovery Practice off the ground and access to highly cost effective marketing support materials should you choose to use them to make the most of being part of a well-established global brand. 

11. Scientifically proven

Is Grief Recovery Certification Training right for you? Our mission is to help the greatest number of people in the shortest possible time. We are looking for people to help us achieve this mission. We recognise that our training isn't right for everyone - to help you decide if this is for you we answer some common questions 

Are you ready to learn through personal experience? 
 
Grief is a very human experience and we try to make our training as well as our programmes as human as possible. The first step in training is to learn the steps of the Grief Recovery Method® by working on a personal loss. The loss may be very recent or happened many years ago. You get to choose which of your losses to work on. The loss needn't be a death - it could be a romantic break up, family estrangement or any other loss. 
 
Not having had a major bereavement does not preclude you from this work. 
 
Is your main motivation to help others? 
 
Whilst most of our graduates offer the Grief Recovery Method® as a Professional service we make no claims as to how much money you can make doing this work nor offer it as a business opportunity. While it is possible to generate a revenue stream this should not be the main reason for doing this course. 
 
Are you working for a hospice or other charity? 
 
The Grief Recovery Method® not only offers effective tools for your beneficiaries, the structured nature of the programmes means you can plan your resources precisely. 
Do you want to be part of something global? 
 
There are thousands of Certified Grief Recovery Specialists on every continent. The programme was established in the US over 35 years ago, in the UK since 2010 and the book is available in 22 languages. 
 
Once qualified you can interact with 100's of Specialists via our closed Facebook group. 
 
Do you want ongoing support? 
 
Support from your trainer is available via Zoom or phone and if they don't know the answer to a particular issue we can access the global network of trainers for guidance. If you should move to another country Grief Recovery Support will be available in almost any time zone. 
 
Do you want Continued Learning? 
 
After qualification, you will have exclusive access to videos and articles for continued learning at no extra cost. There is no compulsory CPD element although we do recommend retraining at some point to refresh your skills. This is offered at a significant discount. From time to time we also run conferences and webinars for graduates which are entirely optional. 

What is in the Training Programme? This 4 day programme will take you through the steps of the Grief Recovery Method then teach you how to take your clients safely through these steps. This is through a mix of lectures and hands on exercises. In addition to the classroom based learning there will be approximately 45 minutes of assignments to do each evening.

Face to Face or Online 

Increased choice in how you train 
For 10 years in the UK, we have offered high quality face to face training which has earned us fantastic feedback. The experience of being led through the process in a group of up to 12 people plus your trainer is truly life transforming. 
 
The lockdown situation caused us to look again at whether we could genuinely offer a training with an equally positive experience online. We decided with a few “tweaks” we could, and our pilot online Certification programme took place in May with very positive feedback. 
 
Key Differences: 
4 days is a long time to be looking at a screen, especially given our subject matter so we’ve split the course into two blocks of 2 day training. This gives you a chance to rest & regroup in between part 1 and part 2. 
 
We use multiple cameras which means the trainer moves around and uses trainer support materials in the same way as they would in a face to face setting. This means you’re not simply looking at a head and shoulders for hours on end making it more dynamic and easier on your eyes. 
 
Your training materials will be shipped to you ahead of time so you get a sneak peak! 
 
We will ask you to book a “tech onboarding call” with us to ensure that your internet speed, webcam & sound are suitable before you get started. You will need a laptop or computer. Tablets and phone won’t allow you to see the whole group and so are not viable. 
 
If you are a non-UK resident then we can refund you the VAT as you are not in the country when you access the “product.” 
 
“the most professional thing I’ve seen on Zoom yet” 
 
“As a trainee on the inaugural on line course, I can say from direct experience how awesome, professional, and inspirational this work was. Thanks to Carole & her magnificent team for showcasing the power and potentiality of this work.”
