I’ve alluded in recent posts to a new project I’ve been working on, and I’m ready to spill the beans….
I’m pleased to announce a new coaching project I’m launching – a grief coaching group for women who have lost their mothers.
I’ve partnered with another coaching colleague, Dee Bailey, to
create and co-lead this unique coaching group for women who are beyond the first
year of grief.
For me personally as a daughter who has lost her mom, it’s an
honor for me to serve others by using my coaching skills in this way.
While this group starting in November will be based here in Minneapolis/St. Paul, we hope to offer a virtual group starting in early 2006.
Please see below for more information, or feel free to contact me with any questions.
MotherLoss: A Journey to Meaning
Reinventing life after the loss of your mother
A unique group coaching experience for women beyond the first year of grief
Once beyond the acute stages of grief, listening ears, caring
hearts and support systems disappear and grievers are left alone with
their loss. This uniquely designed group coaching provides a safe
space for further understanding ones personal grief journey.
Co-lead by two experienced coaches Hanna Cooper and Dee Bailey,
this group experience will focus on the present and possibilities,
rather than the past. As coaches, we consider participants to be
naturally creative, resourceful and whole, not as problems to be fixed
and believe that we all create the lives we want by welcoming new
perspectives and making conscious choices. While coaches will be guides
on the journey, group members are the experts in their own grief and
By attending this group participants will be able to:
~ Discover a variety of ways to be with their grief
~ Learn self-coaching skills to manage the stress that grief brings
~ Experience a hopeful and future-oriented perspective on grief and healing
~ Explore the next steps in their grief journey.
Dee Bailey, MA, PCC is a workshop leader, life coach and grief
specialist who has worked with people in transition and grief for 22
years. In the ten years since her mother’s death, Dee has developed a
unique approach of walking (literally and metaphorically) her clients
through their grief process.
Hanna Cooper , MPH is a professional coach, facilitator, and
public health educator. She comes to co-leading this coaching group as
a means of honoring the life of her own mother who died in 2003, five
weeks after she became a mom for the first time.
