Grief Recovery Method

Overcoming Grief & Trauma Through Grief Support

The Grief Recovery Method is a groundbreaking program designed to help you overcome life’s challenges with a Grief Recovery Specialist, certified through the Grief Recovery Institute. After losing my fiancé in 2016, I participated in the Grief Recovery program myself. The impact it had on my life is indescribable, and the responsibility I felt to share it with others is what led me to seek certification as a specialist. If you’ve experienced the loss of a parent, child, spouse, or loved one or trauma of any kind, and you’re ready to begin the healing process, I strongly encourage you to give this method a try. I offer grief support in Calgary or wherever you are via a secure virtual platform called Jane.

What is The Grief Recovery Method?

The Grief Recovery Method was developed by a man named John James, who suffered the loss of an infant son. This tragedy is what inspired James to develop a resource to help people not only cope with but move forward following loss. Like me, most Grief Recovery Specialists have been certified following a significant loss in their own lives.


The Grief Recovery Method is the only evidence-based grief support program in the world and deals with using concrete tools to aid in the recovery process. Though not the same as grief counselling, The Grief Recovery Method is utilized by several therapists with grieving clients.


Unlike other methods, it requires participants to take an active role in their recovery journey and involves digging deep emotionally. The Grief Recovery Method also heavily focuses on overturning the common myths and beliefs that surround grief and the grieving process.


I know all too well how grief can get in the way of living your best life. If you’re ready to take the next step forward, give me a call today.

The Grief Recovery Method Will Help You . . .


John W. James founded the Grief Recovery Institute as the result of being unable to find the resources he needed to assist him in dealing with the overwhelming grief he was experiencing from the death of his own infant son.
The term “Evidence-Based” means there is research that looked into how The Grief Recovery Method works and is published in a peer-reviewed journal.
The Grief Recovery Method can help you overcome the grief and pain associated with loss. However, we recommend it for those who are ready to take the next step forward.

Meg Roberts - Life coaching Calgary - quotes

Evidence-Based Grief Support

The Grief Recovery Method is a powerful approach that focuses on empowering participants. The program is not about forgetting the painful experiences, but moving forward in spite of it. The Grief Recovery Method has earned the claim “evidence-based” because of the research published about the results. So far, it is the only grief support program with that distinction. As a life coach based in Calgary, I am passionate about offering the program to my clients, not only because it’s evidence-based, but because I know from personal experience that it works. The Grief Recovery Method is not for everyone, but it could be for you; contact me today to find out.

“Grieving people want and need to be heard, not fixed. It is never too soon to heal your heart.” ~ The Grief Recovery Institute
