Susan welcomes Anja Kerstin Kuentzel to Compassion Chats this month. Kerstin is an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist and her rich story includes a confluence of circumstances that began with her own misdiagnosis and mistreated disease followed by her Mom’s lengthy cancer journey and her Dad’s 4-1/2 year roller-coaster ride with dementia. Throughout these challenges, Kerstin was determined to find a healthy perspective and accept her part in the inner healing process.

Kerstin’s explorations led her to a powerful and evidence-proven program by John James and Russell Friedman: the Grief Recovery Method. Trying it first on herself, she became convinced of its clear steps and direct approach. In 2020, Kerstin became a certified Advanced Grief Recovery specialist.
