Today, when I circulated an announcement , of me being a Grief Coach ,I sat back and recalled an article I read at the beginning of my Coaching business ,it was from someone who had lost her husband to a ghastly accident ,her experience and her solutions both gripped me, I followed her on social media and also still in touch with her, not as her coach ,but as her colleague into coaching .
This was the time, I was new to Coaching ,learning ways to Coach and also develop my business ,one of key challenge especially when we establish a Coaching business is to have a niche ,and develop a marketing strategy around it , this is one area ,I struggled in finding my specialization ,where I could serve best and add value . I had not just lost my sleep on it ,but lot of monies ,trying to find my space .
But just like every good result is a manifestation of effort, perseverance and hard work , to me today choosing to be a Grief Coach is my reward . At one end , it brings in an emotion of excitement ,curiosity ,but paradoxically is based on my own experiences of personal loss and grief .
Life besides being stranger than fiction, is filled with paradoxes.
Arriving at this point, of choosing to be a Grief Coach , has a painful history of my own share of personal loss and trauma , the recent being two weeks ago on 12th May 2021, a day before my parents 42th anniversary ,I lost my father ,who I coached as well was also his caregiver for past 5 years while he struggles with several health issues.
With a lot that I carry , and a lot that I had learn over my many experiences with loss, when I asked myself ,what could be the best way to give back to assist and to also find my focus within my business of coaching , I found myself to be a lot equipped with managing grief than any other area within Life Coaching .
Therefore, I NOW choose to pursue it .
Grief coaching is an emerging field in Life coaching and how far it will emerge or scale ,only time will tell, yet I chose the less travelled path, as I feel this is my area where I could add tremendous value ,being at the receiving end of it several times .
This is an area to me to where I have also personally grown through coaching and restoring my life back to normalcy ,and I thus intent to share ,and contribute with a forward action plan, comprising of powerful coaching tools and techniques ,which will assist people ,heal, restore and transition ,especially those who may find themselves stuck in crisis .Mehnaz Amjad
