Grief Recovery UK founder Carole Henderson discovered an earlier edition of the Grief Recovery Handbook by accident in 2007. She had been widowed 8 months earlier and was looking for something that would help. This book was the first thing that made sense after Kevin's death and reading it inspired hope. However it was actually following the instructions set out in the book that changed everything. Freed from the pain of her grief she was astonished at just how effective the Grief Recovery Method is and vowed to bring it to the UK. In 2010 she founded Grief Recovery UK and has since trained over 300 people to be Grief Recovery Specialists - people who teach the Grief Recovery Method to those who don't want to work through the book alone.
