Loss and separation touch all of our lives in a variety of ways. That which we are closest to, that which means a lot to us or takes up a substantial part of our daily life, can be the most difficult to let go of. We grieve what we have been separated from on a conscious and subconscious level and the process of grief affects our emotional, physical and spiritual being. The way we feel and experience the world around us can change. Loss of a relationship can be very painful and may change our whole perspective on life. Initial feelings that accompany a loss can feel overwhelming and never ending. In some cases, we feel numb and may think we are dealing with a loss very well as our conscious mind tries to protect us from the emotional pain that will at some stage surface or manifest itself in a behaviour.
It doesn’t matter when you suffered a loss in your life, how many years ago it was, or who or what it was to, bereavement counselling or hypnotherapy may help you in your present and future life. If we keep hiding bereavements deep in our subconscious mind, they can make us emotionally and even physically ill. Many physical ailments are caused by emotions we have not properly or therapeutically dealt with. There is a healthy and therapeutic way of dealing with even the most intense and painful experiences and memories. When anxiety and depression accompany a loss, I offer clients techniques and tools that can help them own, control and lessen these feelings. Usually people come to see me for bereavement counselling or hypnotherapy because they have experienced the loss of perhaps a partner/spouse, parent, baby/child, relationship or marriage, pet or close friend. Some come to see me within the first 6 to 12 months of the death or loss, others take a few years to want to talk about or discuss the impact the loss has had, and others take decades to reach the point of confronting the past. If you or someone you know may benefit from bereavement counselling or hypnotherapy then you are welcome to contact me to find out more.
