Kitty Howard, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, Creator, “Honor Your Loss. Honor Your Life.”


About The Teacher

Kitty Howard is a courageous and loving soul. She is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and Life Coach. Her life’s work has become supporting bereaved parents and other grievers through their own profound journeys after traumatic loss. Through years of intense study, spiritual exploration and expansion in personal growth Kitty healed herself from the ruins of grief. She created the program, “Honor Your Loss. Honor Your Life.” It’s lessons become the tools that can pull people from profound grief and into their higher selves. It was November 2008 and Kitty’s only child, her son Tristan, was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukaemia (ALL). In a flash he died less than one month later while in hospital for treatment. She was heartbroken and devastated. It was then she made two promises, to quit smoking and learn how to live a beautiful life without him. And so began her first steps into deep grief work. After utilizing everything available through medical professionals; antidepressants, sleep aids, therapy session and traditional group session it was obvious that none of it was working. Nothing was providing the tools needed to move safely through and beyond the pain. A new plan was hatched. Find the beauty! Discover what makes you truly joyful down to the core of your being. Stop the terrible memories linked to PTSD. Find the spaces and places where healing is increased. Find your tribe! Explore your own dreams from childhood and let them uncover what your new direction, your new purpose are.

Like with any teachings, the lessons are truly learned by incorporating them into your daily life. Kitty became passionate about living better, thinking better, being better to others. This is the search and ultimate change that lead to the creation of “Honor Your Loss. Honor Your Life.” Kitty and the program can be found online and on retreat. She works remotely to help as many people as possible through digital programs, live Zoom rooms, and her Facebook page and groups.
