Can hypnotherapy heal heartbreak?
This week the Daily Mail reported that Camilla Dallerup, ex of Strictly dancer Brendon Cole, turned to hypnotherapy to deal with her heartbreak over rumours of his affair.
The engaged dancer was rumoured to be having an off-screen romance with his dance partner Natasha Kaplinski.
Camilla told the press that after seeing her fiancé share a kiss with the newsreader on TV, she felt her world fall apart.
“I honestly wouldn’t wish that time on my worst enemy. I was in such turmoil. We were lovers and we worked together. It had been us against the world,” she said.
The blonde dancer turned to hypnotherapy and life coaching to help her deal with the pain of her loss. She says she has now got to a place where she can speak to Brendon, and insists she does not blame him for what allegedly happened.
Heartbreak can be one of life’s most painful experiences, so is it really possible to ‘heal’ the hurt with hypnotherapy, and if so – how?
Hypnotherapy eases clients into a relaxed state (much like the sensation of daydreaming) in order to access the subconscious and uncover the root of the pain. What is it that hurts so much? The shock of betrayal? The loss of comfort, of routine? The fear of being alone? By targeting these base emotions, it is possible to use linguistic techniques to ‘reprogramme’ patterns of thought. Using powerful suggestion methods, the hypnotherapist can help the client develop a feeling of acceptance, along with the confidence to move on and find peace with their new situation.
While hypnotherapy does not aim to erase painful memories, it can teach new ways of dealing with pain and moving on from loss.
