When a pet dies, disappears or must be given away, the loss can be devastating. A major problem pet owners face is how pet loss is often an unrecognised type of grief by society. It is frequently the case that friends and family members do not realise the depth of this emotionally misunderstood loss. I am a Pet Loss Specialist in Ireland and I offer online 1 on 1 and group support programs. These programs are over an 8 week period and are educational programs with therapeutic benefits. Up until recently there has been little support to those grieving a pet loss. Thankfully the Grief Recovery Method® helps people deal with their loss. If you are struggling, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
