FAQs

Q?

Never considered or heard about bringing in a grief coach to assist you in addressing your loss issues?

A.

The work environment today is a lot more complex than ever before. Employees want to feel that you care for them, that you will give them understanding and "empathy" surrounding their feelings of loss. Many issues affect your employees today. Everything from downsizing, job loss, retirement, death in the workplace, serious illness of a co-worker and family issues impact them at home and travel with them to the office. Training sessions are designed to work in conjunction with your managers as an additional resource to your human resources department or staff. All too often, HR managers are not in a position or trusted by your staff to discuss issues of this nature.

Q?

Is grief coaching the same as therapy or our Employee Assistance Program?

A.

Grief coaching is not therapy or a replacement for your Employee Assistance program. It is also not designed as a replacement for psychotherapy or counseling from a mental health professional if such medical attention is needed by the affected employee or those he or she works with. If there is a need for such services, we recommend using your EAP support services in conjunction with the grief coaching sessions at your workplace.
