GRIEF & LOSS

Grief comes in many forms

Whether you’re coping with the death of a loved one, a terminal or chronic illness, a miscarriage, menopause, divorce, job loss, retirement, an empty nest, or another painful loss, the sadness, confusion and despair of transitioning from one phase of life to another can feel overwhelming. 

Grief and mourning are the same experience.

Myth:

Fact: Grief is what we feel on the inside after we experience a significant loss. Mourning is the outward expression of that grief.

Important life transitions are often filled with unpredictable emotions: crying one moment, angry or anxious the next. You may feel like you're wandering in the wilderness, just trying to make it through each day. The ups and downs can be unbearable. 

While your situation may be the last thing you’d have chosen for yourself, you can choose to face each day with courage and self-compassion. 

Nobody can help you with your grief.

Myth:

Fact: Those in the midst of grief need other people – supportive people who understand the process of grief – to talk to, to listen to their story. 

Taking steps to process your emotions and mourn what you've lost can lead to deep healing and a new sense of purpose and meaning. A professional coach can help to guide and support your healing journey.
