Certified Integrated Transformational Life Coaches Vicy Wilkinson and Ingrid Sthare talk with listeners about things that are difficult and very uncomfortable to discuss as part of a series called Stuff That's Hard To Discuss. This first episode is about a subject that is very personal for both coaches, especially since one of their areas of expertise is helping people recover from huge losses and to actively engage in the grieving process, and they themselves have had a lot to grieve during the past year. This episode shares information, tools, personal experiences with being a "survivor of suicide," and avenues of assistance for people suffering from depression and illness that can lead to suicidal thoughts, ideations, and actions, and for people who are grieving the loss of someone who has taken his or her own life.
You can find more about Ingrid and Vicy, and Complete Life Coaching's programs and services, including a group course for grief and loss called "Empowered Recovery: Losing Someone Else and Finding YourSELF" at the website: www.CompleteLifeCoaching.com.
