Mental & Emotional Wellness with Grief Coaching
Contact us at 785-364-9617.

Grief is a deep and important part of being human. It shows us we can heal and change after losing someone or something important. This journey of change can help us find new meaning and purpose in life. It’s important to understand that everyone feels grief differently. Each time we face a loss or a big change, it’s a unique experience.

Four Compelling Reasons to Choose Grief Coaching:

1. Starting Out: Grief coaching helps you figure out how to begin healing. It encourages you to make steps towards growing and healing.

2. Finding Purpose: It guides you to use your grief as a way to find purpose. This helps you move forward on your journey with a clear direction.

3. Discovering Joy Again: Grief coaching helps you become stronger and find happiness even as you heal from your loss.

4. Looking Forward: Unlike therapy, which looks inward, grief coaching helps you look ahead. It’s for those ready to embrace the future, holding onto the good memories as they adjust to changes.

This approach aims to make the concepts more accessible and the steps easier to understand.

Remember, people dealing with grief aren’t broken. They often just don’t know how to deal with this big change. They might wonder, “Where do I start?”, “What will happen next?”, or “Am I doing this right?” Grief coaching can be a big help. It gives support and a place to talk about their feelings as they work through their grief.
