Psychotherapists Heal Clients’ Grief by Helping them Experience Afterlife Communication with Loved Ones

Rochelle Wright, M.S., LMHC, CDP, NCC, EMDR Certified, is a Washington-state licensed psychotherapist who has developed a procedure for use by state-licensed psychotherapists that reduces grief in a single session for 98% of clients by helping them have afterlife connections with the loved ones for whom they are grieving while in the psychotherapist’s office. Rochelle has trained over 100 psychotherapists to use the procedure, named Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy. It is a remarkable breakthrough in the field of grief therapy that has a profound effect on clients.

Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy

Rochelle developed the Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy procedure that psychotherapists are using to help clients communicate with loved ones for whom they are grieving. The psychotherapist uses bilateral stimulation to help the client enter a state in which afterlife communications occur. It is successful with 98% of the clients who experience it, and the clients’ grief reduces from high scores of 10 and 10 plus plus plus on a 10-point score for the disturbance of thoughts about the deceased loved one to 0, 1, or 2 in a single session. You can read actual accounts of Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy sessions the clients have given us permission to share. Read the accounts.

Future Advancements with Funding

This breakthrough grief therapy method will revolutionize grief therapy and enable people to have the afterlife communication experiences that will change them as human beings. With funding, Rochelle will be able to complete studies to validate scientifically what is already being validated by the consistent, remarkable results in clients. When the psychological community has the validation in the psychology literature, more psychotherapists will seek training, resulting in widespread alleviation of grief and spiritual transformation of clients. The goal is to have trained psychotherapists in every city in the world.

Project Needing Funding

Validate the Effect of Repair and Reattachment Grief Counseling on Grief

The method has great face validity, and the one study of Repair and Reattachment Grief Counseling showed that it dramatically reduces the disturbance of grief and traumatic memories in a single session. The procedure now needs formal studies to determine its effect on clients so it is widely accepted by the psychotherapy community. In this project, the over 100 psychotherapists now trained in the procedure will administer pre-counseling and post-counseling tests to determine the effects on clients. Long-term studies will evaluate the effects on clients over a period of time.

Project Results

  • Validation of the method as a highly effective method of reducing grief
  • Comparison of the method with conventional grief therapy
