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.

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.

Our certified grief coaches are making a difference in the lives of grieving individuals, families, and communities.

The From Grief to Gratitude Coach Certification Program is celebrating four years as an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited program! Love and gratitude to our grief coaches for making a difference in the lives of grieving individuals. Because of you, the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching (IOPGC) is now represented in 38 states and five International Territories. Thank you for answering the compassionate calling and for all that you do. Your service to all of humanity will never go unappreciated.
