See Notes and Testimonies in separate sections  further below) 

 

                     Myths about Grief: 


Time heals all wounds                            Replace the loss •           Grieve alone •          Gotta be strong for others       Bury your feelings       Keep busy                      Move or Change Location     Suck it up buttercup          Move On


Your feelings are normal and natural.   The problem is that we have been socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural. 

 

          Whatever your LOSS is from 

  •  Death          Divorce or End of a Relationship            Loss of a Career  
  •            of Trust            of Faith         of Safety 
  •  Loss of Health              of A Pet         ....or more than 40 other  Losses


People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method® Outreach Program not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to ensure that it happens.

SPECIAL NOTE NOTE BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 2017:  

I have resumed Services after being sidelined  my own immediate family related grief journeys 

I am pleased to announce that I became a Certified Grief Recovery ® Specialist, 

whose flagship handbook helped me and thousands of other grievers with a variety of loss experiences.

I am eager to share this specific Method to help fellow Grievers. 

New Groups can be formed anytime and in different locales. 

You can also contact me to be included in groups or for one to one counsel. 

Also, check into The Grief Recovery Institute website:. 

 www.griefrecoverymethod.com.  

  

Having explored and used Grief Recovery resources personally and as one of my Services, 

I accessed more training for its Certification. 

 Shortly,  I expect to be able to add Ontario Marriage Officiant to my Services.

  Meanwhile, I continue to create, accompany,  and facilitate Memorials and Funerals at 

any place of your choosing as well as at any of our fine Funeral Homes.

Call me directly  705 493 9784 or ask your Funeral Director to do so on your behalf.


NOTES OF APPRECIATION RECEIVED
(May 15)         "Dear Jeff: 
I would like to thank you for your help and support while making the funeral arrangements 

and for the beautiful service that you conducted.   It was very meaningful. 

We received many wonderful compliments from the people who were there."         (funeral)


CLOSED & COMPLETED Nov. 21   Four ALUMNI Group Sessions:   
. (Sturgeon Falls / 4 Tuesdays 10:00 a.m.).

(May17)   "Jeff, the most important moments of life are often shared with special people.                                         Thank you for sharing in this time of sorrow.                                                                                  Thank you for the beautiful Celebration of Life you gave for Bruce Rodgers"

I have had the profound honour of accompanying families 

through the planning and conducting  of

Funerals, Memorials, and Celebrations of Life events.

Each has been as unique in tone and flavour as the person remembered. 

Most occur in a Funeral Home, but others have been in locations special to the persons gathering to remember. Call me, or ask your Funeral Director to request my help.     705 493 9784  (with text).


Ask your Funeral Home Staff to contact me, or contact me directly.
