Beyond the Page Podcast ~Conversations Without Words ~ Uncomfortable to talk about: coaching clients through grief and loss

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Carrie Hopkins-Doubts.

Discover how to hold space for the unspoken sorrows of life with spiritual resilience coach Carrie Hopkins-Doubts. She joins us to unravel the delicate complexities of grief, guiding coaches past the common missteps of misplaced pity and the urge to fix what cannot be mended. Our conversation ventures into the transformative silence that allows for the raw expression of loss, providing insights into how coaches can become pillars of support by asking how to serve and then listening—truly listening—to the profound stories of those navigating their darkest times.

As we explore the intimate journey of grief, akin to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly, Carrie illuminates the significance of patience and presence in the healing process. We discuss the importance of respecting professional boundaries while embracing our own humanity, and we underscore the role legacy plays in conscious grieving. Carrie’s wisdom is woven throughout our discussion, and she shares the foundations of her thoughtful online course designed to help individuals rebuild their lives after loss. Tune in for a deep and meaningful exploration of how we can accompany others with compassion and unwavering support through their grief.

In this episode, I talk with Carrie Hopkins-Doubts about her article published in our March 2024 issue.
