If you’ve found yourself almost inconsolable after your pet died, please know that you’re normal. If you’ve found that your family and friends don’t seem to understand the level of your grief, please know that, too, is normal.
Without comparing our relationships with our pets to those with people, we know that, because of the unique emotional relationships we have with our pets, their deaths produce a level of pain that is difficult to describe.
If you relate to any of these sentences, this class is for you.

The goal of The Grief Recovery Method® is to help you complete your relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by significant emotional loss. We have been there and most probably will be there again. We will be with you on this journey to help your heart deal with the absence of your cherished companion.
Your relationship with your pet is special—it’s a bond that is very different than those that human beings share with each other. When a beloved pet passes away, people often resort to incorrect mechanisms to deal with the grief, such as trying to move too quickly past the loss (dismissing the real impact), or even attempting to replace the pet immediately. However, these are merely two myths out of six that we discuss and dismantle in the Grief Recovery Method®. This class addresses how losing a pet is different from losing a human loved one, and ultimately, how to move on with life.
“I had read countless books and looked everywhere for exactly this. GRM gave me a profound awareness of how I’ve dealt with loss over my lifetime. Barbara held a space of quiet compassion for me to express my feelings without judgment as I learned how to complete and release unresolved feelings. I feel so grateful that Barbara offers GRM.”

We make a commitment to total honesty, absolute confidentiality and recognition of the uniqueness and individuality in every relationship.
