The Grief Recovery Method Certification Training was created over 30 years ago in the USA and has since spread to every continent on Earth. Training started in the UK 10 years ago when American founders Russell Friedman & John W James visited to bring this revolutionary approach to this country. In 2010 Carole Henderson founded Grief Recovery UK and the training became routinely available here for the first time.
Quality Checked by a range of Professional bodies
The National Counselling Society
This counselling professional body reviewed our programme and passed it as being of suitable quality for their members. Graduates of our training who are not counsellors can become associate members of the NCS if they choose.
The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
This counselling professional body used to run an endorsement programme and our training passed their assessment every year until they ended the scheme. BACP members can still ask for this programme to count as 30 hours of their CPD.
We are featured on the Good CPD guide for teachers where we scored the maximum possible for evidence based quality.
An Evidence Base
While users of the Grief Recovery Method have recommended the programme for decades for its effectiveness we now have independent research that has proven the James Friedman Theory of Grief Recovery has a postive impact on grief recovery. More information here.
