Grief and Loss Consulting
Ligia provides Grief and Loss coaching and support to individuals, groups, and organizations.
Grief is the natural response to a loss. People generally try to ignore their grief and pretend that nothing has happened to them, but inside they are hurting. Furthermore, they sometimes want to distract you from your grief with comments that don’t really help.
Do you feel that this has happened to you?
If this pain is not acknowledged and recognized, then it stays with us, preventing us from moving on with our lives. Although most people expect grief to be expressed only at the emotional level, it can be experienced in all dimensions:
Are you facing a change in your life?
Do you feel you have lost connection with who you are?
Do you feel lost, hopeless, or confused?
Although we generally identify the word “loss” with the death of a loved one, there are other types of losses which could also bring grief into our lives. Some of these losses are:
Loss of identity
Divorce or break-up
Loss of your pet
Change of career
Moving or relocating
Aging and loss of youth
Loss of self-esteem
Loss of your job
Loss of health
Taking care of aging parents (caregivers)
Do not allow ANY loss to define you! You are more than what has happened to you. Make that connection with your inner self and use all your resources. As your coach, Ligia can guide you through any of these losses and help you to find meaning and purpose in life with the 11 Principles of Transformation®. It all starts with you.

Healing and Growing for the Grieving Employee
Besides providing her services to individuals and their families, Ligia Houben’s mission is to help corporations and organizations achieve maximum success in their understanding of their employees and clients as they face a life transition.
She has vast experience in conducting training and seminars in the area of bereavement, grief, and loss. Ligia has conducted bereavement trainings at hospitals such as Baptist Health South and Jackson Memorial Hospital and is an adjunct faculty member of several universities.
Her purpose is to help corporations and organizations achieve maximum success in their business through an understanding of their employees’ needs.
As she says, “a grieving employee is not a productive employee.” Grief at work may affect three different groups of people and their productivity: the person facing the loss, the manager of the company, and the people working with someone enduring the loss.
