Losing someone you love can leave you with a whole host of emotions; sadness, loss, anger, stress, relief… Not only are these difficult emotions to process, they may then lead to opening old wounds, depression, anxiety, loneliness, insomnia, emptiness, lack of appetite, feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope.
In contrast, you may be feeling more anger and stress than sadness. Anger at your circumstances or even anger at the person you have lost. You may feel there was unfinished business or you may be feeling guilty.
Everyone is different and copes with loss differently. There is no wrong or right way to grieve, there is no set time in which you should feel better. The hope is that day by day, the emotions are a little less, that each new day may seem a little brighter than the one before. That eventually when you look back at the memories you shared, you might feel more joy and gratitude than sadness and emptiness.
Many times we fall into the habit or may even be encouraged to self medicate with medication or alcohol to help us through the first few days. Unfortunately, this will not be helpful in the long term and so the sooner we can develop other coping strategies the better. It is so important to look after yourself even when you feel you can’t.
How can hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy can not take the grief away. It is important that you are able to process the loss. What it can do is help you with some of your other struggles like anxiety, stress, insomnia, not looking after yourself, self esteem, confidence and your general wellbeing. It also helps to talk to with someone in a confidential, unbiased, non judgemental way.
