One of the worst emotionally charged events in anyones life is the death of a loved one.
Depending on the circumstances you may or may not even get the chance to say goodbye, leading to problems with closure and acceptance. Or maybe the circumstances were tragic and sudden, which add to the emotional trauma of those left behind.
Perhaps there were things you always meant to say to the person and now wont get the chance?
There is a well defined journey grief takes us on, called the seven stages of grief. The emotions usually run as follows: shock, denial/pain and guilt, anger, bargaining, depression, testing and reconstruction and finally acceptance. Anyone can get stuck at any point during this process - through guilt, pain, unspoken words. Hypnotherapy can give you the opportunity to work through any and all of the sticking points, and can even take you to a happy memory to say all the things you wanted to and then say goodbye.
If you need support in any of the above please contact a therapist in your area who will be more than happy to help you.
