Why Work With a From Grief to Gratitude Certified Coach?

Your grief journey is unique to you, but you don’t have to grieve alone. Lots of useful information is available online to help you cope with your grief, but sometimes you desire more. You desire someone to talk to without telling you what you should or should not do. You desire someone to listen without trying to fix you or your grief. You desire a non-judgmental, caring person to share your unique concerns in private. You desire someone to chat with by telephone in the privacy and comfort of your own home. You desire to talk to someone other than your family or close friends, who are trying to help but say all the wrong things. You desire a virtual shoulder to cry on and a virtual ear to simply listen. Our compassionate and empathetic team of certified grief coaches are here to journey with you as you navigate this wilderness of grief to help you pull from your inner strength with powerful, effective coaching tools and exercises to reduce the grief-related pain, fear, stress, and anxiety and propel you forward to a fulfilled life of meaning and purpose. We won’t try to fix you… You are not broken. We won’t try to heal you… You are not sick. We won’t judge you… You are not to be judged. We won’t tell you what to do. We won’t push or pull you. We will journey with you and help you take forward-moving action. When you work with a From Grief to Gratitude Certified Coach, you get the best results, the biggest breakthroughs, and the greatest transformations.


Our Workplace Grief Coaches offer inhouse and virtual workshops, seminars, webinars, and consultations.  We work in partnership with you to ensure your staff members have a greater awareness of the unspoken impact of grief in order to better support and respond to bereaved employees, colleagues, clients, customers, friends, and family members.


All coaches operate independently and do not have an employee or contractual relationship with the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching.
