This 2022 book written in conjunction with Maggie João, is a first in the coaching profession. It debunks the myth that coaches should not be handling grief and loss, in its many forms, within the coaching room.
It has chapters covering the Bereaved coachee and the Bereaved coach as well as a chapter on supporting coachees in organizations during times of loss.
It examines the broader aspects of loss in its many forms and shows that coaches are dealing with the bereavement curve often even if not directly about death e.g. retirement, redundancy, health issues, empty nesters, career transition, menopause.
There is a special part for coach supervisors to support them supporting supervisees with more advanced tools and techniques.
"This well-researched book offers comprehensive help for coaches and supervisors working with bereavement in their practice. It covers a wide range of aspects of grief and loss as well as those caused by death; the discussion around the grief of the loss of identity caused by losing one’s job particularly resonated for me.
The authors empathetically devote an entire chapter to the needs of the bereaved coach, and there is additional guidance on self-care for coaches and supervisors when supporting clients or supervisees through bereavement; what the ethical considerations are, and also how to recognize the need to seek support.
As the title promises, this is a very hands-on guide and the authors and contributors share lots of exercises and tips to accompany the content. Plus there is a whole section composed solely of tools and techniques for dealing with grief and loss. The 20+ case studies of the authors and prominent practitioners' own real-life coaching and supervising sessions through bereavement are extremely insightful.
All in all, I found this book very accessible and packed full of expert information and actionable exercises. Definitely an excellent addition to any coach or supervisor’s toolkit! I could see it being equally useful for organizations and HR practitioners dealing with bereavement, signposting bereavement policies, and handling bereavement in the workplace."
