My top grief education and support questions and answers are listed below, if you do not see your question answered below, then please contact me for more information. 
What is a Grief Educator? 
I like very much my teacher, David Kessler's definition of a grief educator. 
"A Certified Grief Educator is committed to providing the highest level of grief support through education, experience, and insights into the often unacknowledged rocky terrain of grief. Certified Grief Educators completed a certificate program designed by world-renowned grief expert, David Kessler. They bring his unique methodology, tools, and decades of experience to help people navigate the challenges of grief." 
What do I do as a grief educator? 
As a grief educator, I understand that: 
- Grief can be traumatic and transformative. People in grief are not broken, and I do not need to fix them. I offer people in grief my utmost respect and serve them based on their needs and their unique experience. 
- The foundation of serving comes from a place of connection. Empathy, genuineness, honesty, and respect are essential elements of being a grief educator. 
- True expertise in grief lies with the griever. 
- Connection is important to our well-being. I use a mind/body/spirit approach to grief and remind people of the importance of connection to themselves, their friends, family, and community as well as cultivate an ongoing relationship with their loved one who had died. 
- We are committed to providing a safe space for those in grief. 
- As a grief educator, I offer a holistic approach to grieving. I focus on the past, present, and future and understand that in addition to the loss, culture, community, spirituality, and beliefs play a role in the individual’s grief. 
- As a grief educator, I understand that the responsibility for change lies with the griever. I can inform, reflect, and support others. But their journey is ultimately their own. 
How many sessions of grief education and support will I need? 
This is a unique process based on each individual's needs and as such the number of sessions will vary from person to person. While people can make huge progress in just a couple of sessions, grief work is a process very unique and personal to each and everyone of us and there is no timeline in grief. I have a client-centred approach and I will always work alongside you and at your own pace. 
What are the fees for grief education and support? 
We always begin with a 30-minute complimentary discovery call to discuss grief support, your needs, what types of services I offer and my approach to client service. This introductory call will also allow us to get to know each other.
