Grief and bereavement are natural responses to a loss after someone significant in our life dies. The nature of grief after a death loss and its intensity depends on the person experiencing grief. The relationship to the deceased person and, in some cases, one’s culture can play a part. Grief is unique to everyone.

The grief after a death loss can often be a very painful experience. Loneliness and isolation, a sense that no one understands, a longing to get back to life as it was, and questioning how to move on from here, to name a few are some of the common themes identified after the death loss of someone significant to our lives.

Many argue that unsupported grief may lead to poor coping skills, addictive behavior, depression, and other mental health disorders. Therefore, most believe services supporting one’s grief are essential for healthy post-bereavement growth.

Although in-person and virtual support groups may be beneficial to alleviating some of these common themes, they may not lend themselves to help one answer the common questions of where do I go from here? Or how do I move forward while still mourning? That’s why so many people seek support in the form of counseling or other professional help as they navigate the ever-changing experience of grief.

Yet now, there is a new trend, a more recent tool to help you find answers to these questions.

It’s grief coaching. Equivalent to the cost of most co-pays, a qualified grief coach can help grieving individuals find ways to cope and navigate life after a death loss.

How is Grief Coaching different from Clinical Therapy? 

Designed to help people suffering with their grief after a death loss, a HealGrief Coach provides tools and support when dealing with the waves of big feelings that can show up at any time. A HealGrief Coach may not be a licensed therapist and may not even be professionally trained. Yet, they have a profound experience with grief.

Clinical therapy is for mental health issues, depression disorders, and other illnesses that require licensed professionals like psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed mental health social workers. Although these professionals are clinically trained, they may not necessarily have the unique experience of grief after a death loss.

Whereas clinical therapy may include a focus on grief-related emotions and conditions, a HealGrief Coach focuses on getting you back on your feet after a significant setback so you can achieve healthy post-bereavement growth.

Clinical therapy may focus on one’s past or provide necessary tools to explore unresolved feelings towards one’s relationship with their person. A HealGrief Coach supports you to move forward and focuses more on what comes next after suffering a death loss.

Clinical therapy is provided by a licensed mental health professional. HealGrief Coaches are compassionate individuals trained to understand grief deeply.
