Life changes come in many forms. The death of a loved one, a promotion at work, moving, illness, and marriage are just a few examples of major life changes. We all experience change. It’s just a part of life that can’t be avoided. And change, whether good or bad, can trigger a variety of responses.
Grief is one response that is often misunderstood. Most people associate grief with the emotion following the death of a loved one. And it is. But that isn’t the only time we experience grief. Grief is an intense feeling of sorrow or distress after experiencing loss. Any type of loss can result in grief. It doesn’t have to be death. Change that improves our lives can also lead to grief as how we react to the loss of our normal routine varies from person to person.
What do you do when you are struggling with adjusting to life after a major change? Any change requires developing a new second nature. But, training your brain and body to behave and respond in new ways is difficult. When you’re already struggling this can seem like a monumental- and even insurmountable- task.
Allow me to help you.
Working with a grief & loss coach
It’s never shameful to ask for help. If you’re struggling with adapting to changes in your life, you don’t have to suffer in silence. As a certified life coach I’m here to listen to you. I do not approach our relationship with preconceived notions regarding what’s best for your life. Only you can make those decisions. I listen to you and guide you in honoring yourself and making the tough decisions on how to heal. I will guide you through the experience of processing your change and moving to the future defining your new normal.
Coaching Is Not Therapy or Counseling
Coaching is designed to focus on where you are now and how to get to where you want to be. It does not focus on the past. In dealing with grief and loss it will be essential to understand the past, but how the past lead to the present will not be the focus. In therapy and counseling, the individual works with a licensed health care professional to analyze the behaviors of the past and how to change them to break patterns and beliefs with the goal of leading to a better future. As a life coach, I will ask and listen to your interpretation of the past in order to understand the change you are working through. From there I will guide you to determine where you want to be and help you formulate a plan for how to get there.
