Life coach provides five primary keys to move through the bereavement process

After the loss of her husband, Jean Birckhead wished she had been given a manual on how to grieve. She was about to enter a difficult and uncertain chapter in her life, that even her counseling experience had not prepared her for. Now, Birckhead combines her personal experience with her professional training to provide the guidebook she always wanted in “Five Keys for Grieving People: An Unofficial Guide to Your New Normal.”

While mourning is a deeply personal experience, “Five Keys for Grieving People” helps normalize any feelings exhibited after the passing of a loved one. Additionally, Birckhead emphasizes the fact that grief is not about the individual who has passed, but truthfully concerns the person left behind. She discusses five essential keys that will help the heartbroken learn to process their grief, find purpose in the pain and settle into their new normal.

“Grieving is a necessary process that has its ups and downs but, too often, we get stalled because we are stuck on a person that is no longer there,” Birckhead said. “Five Keys for Grieving People helps individuals focus on themselves, understand their emotions and eventually find a purpose in the loss.”

Birckhead brings an insightful Christian perspective that can aid individuals battling various encounters with grief. For more information, please visit
