Grief Recovery: consultations in English
Grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss of any kind. It is also the most neglected and misunderstood experience, often by both the grievers and those around them.
Grief is defined as the “conflicting emotions that follow the ending or change in familiar patterns of behaviour.”
To be willing to grieve properly is to be willing to feel pain. Avoiding pain will only compound it.
Grief waits on welcome, not time, to be appeased.
Sadness does not want to be healed; it wants to be held. In my experience as I bear witness to a griever’s deep sadness and hold space for it with them, they find that they can face and feel their sadness without drowning in it.
“The best way out is always through”
The word “emotion” comes from the Latin ēmovēre: ē = out, and movēre = move, motion; meaning “to move out”, “move the feeling”. When we allow emotions to freely move in us, through us, between us, they gradually change.
The Grief Recovery Method is an action plan. It is a series of small steps that when taken by the griever lead to the completion of all the unresolved feelings linked to the loss.
