Hypnotherapy for Grief & Loss

Overwhelming sadness or grief is a natural emotion when tragedy or the loss of a loved one happens to you.  Most of us can relate to a friend losing a sibling, spouse, or parent.  When it happens to us personally, it takes on a different dimension.

Dealing with our feelings and those close to us can be very difficult. The grieving process has to take its course but if those feelings continue to affect our ability to function some help may be needed.

Loss is inevitable and therefore unavoidable. Each of us will eventually lose everyone and everything, including our own bodies. There is a natural emotional response to loss that we call grief, and this is normal and healthy to feel.

This healing process then inspires us to move forward with a deeper appreciation for the rich gift that is life. Healthy grief also bestows on us a tender heart of compassion for all beings, because our loss makes us vividly aware of their (and our own) fragility.

It is hard to appreciate this painful part of our existence. Some people get caught in an experience of grief that hardens their hearts and makes them bitter. When we experience such “bitter grief” we suffer unnecessarily. We create needless pain for ourselves when we replay the memories of our loss again and again, and continue to review these memories with thoughts of hopelessness and despair. Such unhealthy grief is very much akin to the activity of the subconscious mind when it creates Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The force of habit, of thinking in this destructive way, is often too powerful for your conscious mind to change. However, with the skillful use of hypnotic trance states, we can eliminate this tendency to produce the needless suffering of bitter grief.

For some, grieving is a process that does not improve over time; it may even become worse. If this is the case for you, then you may experience continued feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, anger and blame, frequent intrusive thoughts about the person you have lost and about their death, preoccupation with your grief, or find that almost everyone and everything is a reminder of your loss. You may be unable to go about your daily routine or function normally. If this is the case, bereavement counseling and hypnotherapy can help to identify what is causing this “complicated grief” and give you strategies to help overcome it.

No matter what your personal beliefs are, you can connect with the love of a person even after their death. You can learn to experience this closeness and let your grief begin to subside.

Hypnosis is excellent help for bereavement, because the techniques are able to teach you how you can consciously decide to think a certain way about your loss. Your mind is powerful, and changing its thought patterns from grief-stricken sadness and anger to love and memories can go a long way toward help with bereavement. Through grief hypnosis, you will still have your memories – but they will be less charged with painful feelings, allowing you to be able to talk openly, should you wish, without the fear of being overcome by gushing emotions.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, I am experienced in a number of techniques that provide you with healing and, in certain circumstances, with closure.

Hypnotherapy helps you to begin to move on, to begin to live your life again, and to learn to enjoy yourself once more without feeling guilty. It allows you to find ways to remember the person (pet) you have lost, and to still feel that they are part of you and part of your life.

You might have heard the different stages or phases of grief, something that the mourner must pass through; however, it doesn’t have to be passive. There are helps you can get and there is something you can actively do to adapt to the death of a loved one. Mourning is a process and not a state.
