Frequently Asked Questions
What losses can you help me with?
All losses are welcome! There are over 43 losses that can cause grief.
How is this different from therapy?
Unlike traditional therapy, The Grief Recovery Method programs come with a pre-established framework, a distinct focus on grief, and a limited number of meetings.
Do I have to attend every session?
Yes. The recovery programs are not drop in meetings. Your commitment and faithful attendance is essential.
How do I get started?
It’s important to take action and proceed at a pace you feel comfortable with. We invite you to schedule a FREE consultation to answer any questions you have about the programs (1-on-1 or group) and what might be the best course of action for you.
What can I expect during sessions?
Each recovery program is facilitated by a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. All programs are action-based and involve reading and writing assignments. You will be welcomed into a confidential, non-judgmental space where you’ll be expected to share the emotional truth of your story as it happened to you. You will learn about all types of loss and you will choose what loss you want to focus upon.
Is there an age requirement?
Though designed for adults, TemperedFit’s resident Certified Grief Recovery Specialist is authorized to guide teens through the programs. If you have a mature 16 or 17 year-old who would benefit from grief recovery, we can help.
What’s the difference between 1-on-1 and group programs?
Group: Work with a Specialist in a group setting, hear the Specialist’s story as well as the stories of others and get support from the group through the later weeks of the program
1-on-1: Work privately with a Specialist and get direct support, utilizing the same proven materials as the group programs
What else should I know?
While you may come with a specific loss in mind, your Specialist, Dr. Marlena Butler, will lead you through the process of looking at all of the emotional losses that have touched you throughout your life, so that you can be focused on the one that has impacted you to the greatest degree.
