“Thank you for such an inspiring program! Three weeks after the Program, I went through all my late husband’s stuff, which I hadn’t been able to do for more than a year. It was hard to do, but I’m glad I did it. Then I decided to bring in all my doggy stuff into the bedroom. He loved the doggies. He would have been so happy to have this doggy corner in the room. The Program gave my grief a voice, and I managed to let the pain go. You gave me hope that grief can be complete, and that memories can stop causing pain.” – F.Y., March 2018

“I’m truly glad that I came for this Program. I am not afraid to recall the memory of my son anymore, as I’ve learnt how to deal with my emotions in a more constructive way. I am now more confident to move forward because I know what to do. Thank you for setting a good example in overcoming grief. We see strength and courage in the personal experience you shared with us.” – S.L., May 2019
Grieving for an animal can be a lonely place. The loss of a beloved pet is hard to put into words, but the grief is real for everyone, including young children and grandparents in the household. It doesn’t help that there is still a stigma attached to grieving over an animal. Those who grieve over pets often encounter avoidance, which adds to their pain. By acknowledging your loss, recovery can begin.
“I was stuck in an emotionally abusive marriage for more than 30 years. This Program has given a voice to my years of misery. It has allowed me to cry my heart out. That was the start of being able to move past my hurts, wounds and memories. I am a changed person today. I have moved on and am able to go back to being a lively person once again.” – A.C., March 2018
“It was great to be able to talking through the loss of my baby girl, and it was a relief to be able to converse without being interrupted or judged. I felt listened to. My emotions were acknowledged and I was affirmed. At first, I could not think of any good memories of my baby. Then I was able to recall happy moments when she was in my womb, so I could draw upon these positive memories, and cherish them.”- T.T., Jan 2019
The loss of good health, and the freedom and mobility that comes with it, can bring the onset of grief, whether it is an acute health condition, the diagnosis of a terminal illness, or the loss of limbs due to accident or disease.
Business failure and job retrenchment can bring about the onset of grief, especially as it relates to one’s identity, ability to provide for the family, and the loss of one’s home, savings and financial assets.
