Grief Coaching: Our Comprehensive Review

by Jill

Loss. Who hasn’t experienced it in their lives? If you’re like most people, you probably have experienced loss more than once in your life. Just like with most things in life, different people respond to loss differently. Coping mechanisms are as varied as the people who experience loss. One common response to loss, though, involves grief. Grief is natural. Grief is often automatic. However, how one manages grief can significantly influence how quickly a person gets over grief.

In many cases, responding to grief is like trying to pinch a balloon. No sooner have you pushed one end of a balloon when the other end of the balloon swells up. Sadly, many people don’t realize that grief works the same way in their lives if they deal with it in an improper or unhealthy way. Addictions, emotional issues, and less than optimal lifestyle choices often result from our unconscious efforts at coping with grief. Professional grief counselor, Pauline Laurent’s, grief coaching site, Grief Coaching, helps individuals identify the influence of grief in their lives as well as coaching them toward more positive resolutions.
