Spring has sprung where I live and work as a life coach in Washington, DC. Flowers have opened and the earth is abuzz with new growth. It has me thinking about nourishment and the elements that are essential for growth. The sunlight, water, and mud that characterizes springtime are all essential to creating the lushness of life. They are just as important as the darkness and rest that occur during winter and fall.
What kind of nourishment does this season of your life require? To live wholeheartedly, to feel in balance, to enjoy a fulfilling relationship, to have a purposeful lifestyle and career, we must explore and acknowledge where we are sourcing our nourishment right now.
Ambiguous Loss: the Grief We Don’t Acknowledge
What is Ambiguous Loss?
- Physical loss of someone you love by death, moving, or changing jobs
- Loss of contact with a friend, death of a pet, loss of a job, loss of control
- Loss of a sense of confidence, security, goals, or a life plan.
Grief and Loss Coaching can help clarify your situation, process your grief, and face your life as it is now. Clients have come to me for coaching with unsettling, sad, troubling feelings that arise from:
- Loss of a relationship (friend or romantic)
- Loss of a friendship
- Loss of a pet
- Loss of a business
- Loss of job security
- Personal physical losses due to illness or the natural aging process
- Climate grief
- Grief related to racial injustice.
Perhaps you’re feeling it’s a season when the garden of the heart needs tending. Remember, when we are active participants in processing our life experiences, nothing is truly “lost.” It simply gets cleared, placed on the compost pile, and becomes nourishment for new growth.
Work With Me: Life Coaching for Grief & Loss
Helping people move through transitions of all kinds including grief and loss is nothing new for me as a coach.
I understand from my extensive client work and my own personal experience that grief is an important part of the human experience.
Coaching with me provides:
- A listening ear
- A “container” to process loss / safe space friends & family can’t provide (or we don’t want to “burden” them by asking)
- Access to one’s own inner resources.
- Learning to work with your grief instead of against it
- Building a relationship, setting goals, making changes, building on what works for you
- Increased freedom and a better sense of personal identity
- Access to a non-judgemental space and powerful questions that allow you to find your own answers.
