Bereavement

Normally people associate bereavement with the death of a loved one. The more a person is a part of your life the bigger hole they will leave when they are not there but it can also be the case with the losing of anything that is important to you.

There are many other instances of bereavement and loss which are also agonising:
Divorce, miscarriage, the loss of a pet, the loss of a job, being made redundant, the break-up of a relationship or the loss of freedom to be yourself are a few examples.

Whatever it is, the process of the emotional feelings that you go through will be similar. It will only be the intensity of the feelings and the time they last that will be different and this will depend on how significant the loss is to you.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D was a psychiatrist and the author of the groundbreaking book "On Death and Dying", published in 1969, in which she described the emotional journey that is or can be experienced. The sequence of the emotional journey she describes is: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. At times, people in grief will often report more stages. Just remember your grief is as unique as you are but it will also be very similar to other people experience. Understanding the process that the bereaved go through can help to facilitate resolution and healing.

Hypnotherapy, anxiety and stress management and relaxation techniques can help you deal with these sometimes seemingly unmanageable feelings which can take over your life.
 

Client feedback:

Thank you Neil for helping me to understand what was happening to me after my father died suddenly. It was a very confusing and painful time for me and I couldn't understand why I was so angry about everything.

You treated me with tenderness and care teaching me ways in which I could help myself through this difficult period and make sense of the rollercoaster of emotions which seemed to be tearing me apart. You helped me to realize that everything I was going through was quite normal even tho I thought it would never end.

Everthing you said made so much sense and I valued the endless patience you took with me . I now understand myself better \nd all those emotions and I am getting on with my life again. Miss Dad of course but it is less painful now and the relaxation stuff you taught me gets me through on a daily basis.

very many thanks for your care

Sarah
