New 5 week coaching family estrangement support group

New Group Coaching Course The Living Loss: Family Estrangement & Stages Of Grief

What's it about?

A coaching group is with others who are estranged from a family member. There are two separate groups - one for parents, one for estranged children and siblings.

Many of you have read my piece on the Living Loss and Stages of Grief in Family Estrangement.

After requests for more online coaching retreats, I decided that this 5-step estrangement grief concept would be a good structure to work through in a coaching group.

The group will run for 5 sessions of 1.5 hours from mid-September 2023. It is limited to 12 places and I've made it time-zone friendly for North America and Europe (where most of you are).

Each session will be structured with activities to work on at each stage of estrangement grief as outlined in the piece. If in agreement, you will be assigned a partner to discuss activities between sessions. In each session, we'll spotlight a consenting group participant to share their experience/strength/hopes and where they feel they are at. There will, of course, be open time to discuss, share and reflect.

Who is it for?

This is suitable for anyone at any stage of estrangement grief and all emotions, feelings, questions, voices and curiosities are welcome. It's aim is to be warm and supportive. The transformative coaching method is future-facing by nature, and it is about gentle but empowered steps forward on your path. There are separate groups for estranged parents and adult children?

Is it therapy?


It may feel therapeutic to be in a group setting with people who understand, but it's ethical to stress that this isn't a replacement for one-to-one support with significant trauma. As a coach, I work in a trauma informed way. This can be a helpful complement to other modalities to feel less alone, and meet others having this human experience.
