Besides providing emotional support, we provide practical ways to help the bereaved emerge from grief and regain balance after their loss.
Balanced Wheel exists to simplify the journey from initial grief resulting from the loss of a loved one to finding new meaning in life and improving quality of life. Bereaved individuals are given our support in finding a balanced state of well-being after their loss.
We work with you to:
Heal is about addressing the variety of difficult emotional, financial, social, and spiritual questions that all of us face following the loss of a loved one, such as what do I do now? Will I survive this grief? How do I cope with my loss? Is there anyone else who’s going through this? How long will this grief last? etc
Rebalance is the core of Balanced Wheel. It's about helping you through the support groups that we facilitate to help you emerge from grief, re-engage in life, and to begin rebuilding your life.
We journey with you to explore practical and useful ways to address secondary losses in order to help you achieve balance in the eight dimensions of wellbeing.
Thriving is the result of a balanced wheel of life. The bereaved individual emerges from grief, has gained access to appropriate support, developed an enhanced capacity to cope with grief, balance between the grief process and life going forward, experienced Post Traumatic Growth with an improved quality of life, and regained balance in the eight dimensions of their wellbeing.
Get Support How we Support you
As part of our Informational Bereavement support services, we provide articles, guides, and frequently asked questions that help walk you through the entire grieving process of what to do when someone dies, how to deal with the early response to loss, how to cope with grief and how to adjust to life after the loss of a loved one.
We provide a comprehensive view of the grieving process that is informed by those who have experienced bereavement or who support those grieving as a family member, friend or professional.
Losing a loved one can be an incredibly difficult experience. The death of a loved one whether sudden or gradual can be very difficult to deal with. It can have a wide range of effects on people through a wide variety of sometimes conflicting emotions.
Support is available if you have lost someone close to you. Sharing your experience of grief with others who are experiencing similar things can be more helpful than trying to cope alone.
