Grief is normal and natural. It is not a pathological condition or a personality disorder.
The Grief Recovery Institute has been guided by a primary principle: to deliver grief recovery assistance to the largest number of people in the shortest period of time. Grief Recovery will allow you to choose completion and recovery rather than isolation and avoidance.
As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist from the Grief Recovery Institute I will listen and walk through the grief with you — you are not alone! You don’t need to be fixed because you’re not broken – you’re simply grieving.
While grief is normal and natural, and clearly the most powerful of all emotions, it is also the most neglected and misunderstood experience, often by both the grievers and those around them. Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior.
“The key to recovery from grief is action, not time! Most people associate the word grief primarily with death, but it actually applies to more than forty human loss experiences.”
