The Grief Recovery Method®

The ONLY Evidence-based Action Program for Moving Beyond Loss

 

Whispering Hope specialises in the internationally-recognised Grief Recovery Method®.

 

More than 500,000 people across the world, in Australia, Sweden, UK and USA, have benefitted from the Grief Recovery Method®  in the last 40+ years.

 

Research conducted by the Kent State University in Ohio, USA, has shown that the Grief Recovery Method®  approach is “evidence-based” and effective. It is the only grief support program to have received this distinction of being evidence-based!

 

Just as a small key can unlock a large door, the Grief Recovery Method®  hinges on strategic key choices that anyone can make, to take that 1% responsibility to open their heart and head to recovery.

 

THE PROBLEM:

We are uncomfortable with grief

We just want grief to go away!

 

This makes us prone to dispensing clichés and prescribing ‘quick-fix’ advice such as:

  • “Give it time; you will feel better soon”
  • “You must stay strong!”
  • “Don’t cry; he is in a better place now”
  • “Keep yourself busy and you will feel better”
  • Isn’t it time you moved on? It’s been so long.”

 

These are not only unhelpful, but are actually harmful, because they hinder healing and recovery.

 

For someone who is blindsided by tragedy or engulfed in grief, moving on is not merely an act of the will. Grief is a natural and emotional response to loss. Grief is not logical; it is emotional. Heartbreak requires healing, and that’s where we must begin.

 

We start on the road to recovery by acknowledging the full extent of our loss, and articulating all the things we never got to say and do. Only then we will find emotional completion.

 

Why prolong your pain when you can move beyond the grief? Get in touch with us today.

  • Most of us are at a loss when confronted with someone in grief. We struggle with knowing what to say.
  • What’s worse, in trying to avoid awkward conversations, we end up avoiding the person altogether — at a time when they need us the most!
  • Purpose: To equip leaders and managers with practical tools and tips on how to relate with those in grief
  • Goal: More supportive teams and communities, with healthier and more productive individuals, who are able to recover from life’s losses and bounce back from grief and failure.
