The Confident Grief Coach and B.R.E.A.T.H.E. Facilitator Certification Program

Discover How to Confidently Help Grieving Clients Find Healing Through This Step-By-Step Coaching Model,

So They Can Live Their Lives With Peace, Purpose, and Happiness

Are you a coach, psychologist, clinician, or other helping professional who finds meaning in helping your clients move forward after experiencing deep loss?

Or perhaps you are someone who has the lived experience of successfully creating a life of purpose after significant loss, and now you want to provide support to others?

Are you looking to be able to expand your confidence and up-level your skills in helping people who are living in grief?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions….

Then you most likely “get it” – you understand the heaviness and work it takes for someone who is grieving deeply to move forward after experiencing great loss.

And if you are like the majority of us, you have experience grief in some way during your life. 

Grief through the death of a loved one or other significant loss is not something we really like to talk about but the reality is – it is going to happen to all of us at one time or another.

In fact…

Millions of people throughout the world grieve and suffer from the death of a loved one.

Yet despite grief being one of life’s biggest challenges…

It can still be deeply misunderstood—especially in societies and cultures where grief is not allowed the time to be given its due process.

And while we know we can’t avoid the trauma that comes with it, people should still have access to compassionate experts and strategies to process their grief.

Unfortunately, there can be an ENORMOUS GAP between

wanting to support individuals and families who are grieving after a deep loss


knowing how (through proven methods) to help them create positive change in their emotional and physical well-being.

"If we don’t help the bereaved process grief through effective coaching strategies, they could experience what I call “FAILED GRIEF”

Hello, my name is Pat Sheveland and I am the founder of The International Academy for Grief.

“Failed grief” is something I’ve witnessed in my own life.

I used to live in a home where my deceased brother’s memory was never spoken of or acknowledged…

…and it ultimately led to a home that was shrouded in unspoken sadness.

This has happened to MANY of my clients and I know there is so much more grieving and silent suffering in this world that is unfortunately left unacknowledged and unaddressed.

If we don’t do something about this now, we are depriving so many individuals and families  the chance to live lives with peace, purpose and happiness.

I believe you are here right now because you have the inner calling with the heart, passion and willingness to helping others move from simply surviving to actually thriving in their lives.

That’s why I am sharing with you a proven coaching model that will not only fully equip you to become a certified grief coach…

But also gain complete CONFIDENCE in supporting those who are grieving.

This class is designed, in part, to help you process any of your own unhealed or unexplored grief.

You will not only walk through the various steps of the B.R.E.A.T.H.E. program as a student—you will also be actively doing the exercises and assignments as if you are the grief client.

We do this so you can understand steps that can help both you and your clients towards living a life filled with happiness, peace, and purpose.

Master the Non-Conventional Ways To Emotional and Physical Well-Being for your client's lasting change.

This class will help you utilize the blueprint for the B.R.E.A.T.H.E. Coaching Model for Grief to challenge the belief that long-term talk therapy or medication is the only path to experience healing in grief.

“Who knew that at the time of taking this course, I would encounter anticipatory grief in my own family? The program is so skillfully put together that this became a journey into insight on how to make a difference in my life. I have been a nurse for 34 years with a background in trauma, hospice and pain management. For years I volunteered with a support group for kids with cancer. The program has laid out a path on how to help others return to joy. I am very grateful to Pat Sheveland for this gift and opportunity. I hope that many more learn this model and we can spread healing and empower others in the most needed times of their lives when encountering grief, loss, abandonment and sadness. I am now ready to make a difference!”
