    Grieving Consecutive Loses with Audrey White

    Grieving Consecutive Loses with Audrey White

    On this episode, we had the opportunity to hear from Audrey White, a grief coach who has experienced immense personal loss, including the passing of her father, mother, and brother and dealing with the fallout of divorce and job losses during the global pandemic.
    Despite her own grief, Audrey's experience endowed her with the skills to become a grief coach, enabling her to help others navigate their own loss and painful emotions. She established the Grief Coach Academy, a platform created with the idea of training others to be grief coaches.
    Audrey shared a unique coping mechanism she learned at the Grief Coach Academy - the "PEACE" method which helps people work through their grief. It stands for Present, Express, Accept/Appreciate, Consider, and Enthusiasm.
    In the conversation, Audrey stressed the importance of allowing yourself to completely experience all the emotions around grief before progressing to acceptance and enthusiasm. Suppressed emotions, she warned, often create obstacles in the grieving process.
    Audrey's ethos is to aid people in discovering their peace through their sorrow, in hopes of enabling them to live more fully. One major step towards this, she believes, is normalizing conversations around grief, allowing people to work through their pain in a healthier manner.
    About Audrey White:
    Audrey White is the CEO of the Grief Coach Academy and holds a Master of Public Health from the University of Michigan. She understands grief both professionally and personally. In 2020, Audrey lost eight family members, including her mother. In 2022, her brother was tragically killed by his wife, who subsequently took her own life. Through her own journey of healing, Audrey has developed a deep compassion for those suffering from loss, setbacks, and grief.

Feel your feelings and laugh along the way

The GMC podcast covers tough topics served with a heavy dose of laughter. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll come back wanting more. The hosts are open (and hilarious) books.

Grateful for this podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for awhile and love it. Cara and Rashida are so relatable and hilarious. Having recently lost my dad, I plan to go back and listen to older episodes again. Grieving while parenting is rough and these women make me feel less alone in that journey.
