I recently had the absolute privilege of being coached by Jane Cann of Time to Grow. Jane is a thorough professional who instantly made me feel comfortable to reveal the deepest issues that were holding me back in many areas. Without judgement she made me aware of what I had control over and we worked together to develop new strategies and goals that have led to huge breakthroughs and a big lurch forward in my life through her gifts of drawing out insights, motivation and growing my confidence. I felt totally supported with Jane's coaching style - a blend of humour and damn straight honest feedback holding me accountable to achieve my outcomes and championing me across the finish line. Thank you Jane for being such an inspiring and empowering Coach.

Dealing with unresolved grief

Grief is a natural human response to losing someone or something.

Grief can be associated with death of a loved one and may be human or animal (sometimes the love we have for pets may transcend the love we have for people).

Grief may also be associated with losing a position in society. For example; retirement, retrenchment or redundancy.  The feelings of shock, denial, anger and resentment are equally as strong as losing a loved one.

There is no “right time” to stop grieving. Grief can occur over many years and it is up to the individual to decide when the act of grieving is no longer resourceful or sustainable. 

Often, the greatest barrier to releasing unresolved grief is the assumption that the intensity of grief is proportionate to the love felt for the individual or situation.

During a Life Coaching Intensive the main aim is to release the grief with great compassion and gentleness and replace it with love and gratitude for the person/situation. This allows you to reconnect with the deep love and gratitude felt before the grief and to release the strong emotional response of sadness and regret.
