About Grief Recovery (UK) 

Carole Henderson (formerly Carole Batchelor) set up Grief Recovery (UK) in 2010 in order to increase the number of people with direct access to the Grief Recovery Method in this country. It is a Not for Profit organisation dedicated to helping the greatest number of grievers in the shortest amount of time and offers help to both individual grievers and trains those who wish to help others. Since then hundreds of people have qualified as Certified Grief Recovery Specialists and many more individual grievers have been helped. Carole works closely with Cole James, John James and Russell Friedman on almost a daily basis to ensure the programmes are delivered in the format proven over 30 years of work at the Grief Recovery Institute in the USA. 

About Carole Henderson 

In November 2006 Carole’s husband Kevin Batchelor died from skin cancer. Shattered by this enormous loss she sought help from as many directions as possible and 6 months later by accident came across The Grief Recovery Handbook. Completing the actions in the book changed her life and in November 2009 almost exactly 3 years later to the day Carole achieved her qualification as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. 
Having trained with Russell Friedman co-author of the book and director of the Grief Recovery ® Institute, she set about running groups and personal workshops from her home. Recognising her energy and commitment Russell asked Carole to establish Grief Recovery UK in 2010. Carole has since undergone comprehensive training with Russell and the Grief Recovery Method Founder John W James to be skilled enough to train others to become Certified Grief Recovery Specialists.
