SPACE IS STILL AVAILABLE 


Summer Certification Class Begins June 7, 2022


“This is really an important topic that most people never receive any education about, yet every one of us is going to have to deal with it probably at multiple times in our life. You are doing important work and you have such an interesting story.”  −JACK CANFIELD, Co-Author of the Bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul™ Series

WHY DO WE GRIEVE ANYWAY?  WE GRIEVE BECAUSE WE LOVED.

Grieving is not a disease. It is a necessity that follows no linear pattern. Grief coaching, an untapped non-therapeutic paradigm, shifts the perspective that grief is an illness that needs to be treated, fixed, or cured. Instead, it empowers individuals to open themselves up to allow the normal and natural responses to loss … giving themselves permission to grieve. Thereafter, helping them to navigate through and thrive in their own personal sense of new normalcy. Grief coaching does not infer, provide, or replace professional counseling, therapy, or mental health services.


Become a From Grief to Gratitude Certified Coach and offer a service that never goes unappreciated.  Learn to work through personal unresolved grief and help others move from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible. Become certified as a From Grief to Gratitude Certified Coach by the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching on the From Grief to Gratitude Coaching Program, accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).


Our mission is to educate on the misunderstood and often avoided sensitive topic of grief; train and certify professional grief coaches to help individuals move from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible; and, to help organizations create compassionate and grief-informed workplace cultures.

“It’s insane when you really think about it that we give months off for maternity and paternity leave but not for the death of a family member.”  −JACK CANFIELD, Co-Author of the Bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul™ Series
