Bereavement Therapy Programme

Hypnotherapy for Grief and Bereavement

- Have you lost someone close to you?
- Do you have constant feelings of loneliness, hurt, sadness?
- Do you feel unable to move on?
- Do you have feelings of guilt, anger, anxiety?
- Do you have feelings of regret, for words left unspoken?
- Do you want to move forward but don't know how?

Grief is a normal feeling we experience in reaction to a loss and usually refers to the loss of a loved one, through death.

Death is as much part of our life as living

What Is Normal Grief?

The  more typical feelings of grief someone may encounter after a bereavement can include.

   -   Feelings of guilt
   -   Anger
   -   Sadness
   -   Crying
   -   Loneliness
   -   Disturbed sleep
   -   Weight loss
   -   Hearing the voice
   -   Seeing the person
   -   Pre-occupation with the person

The initial symptoms and disturbances will become less and less as you begin to except the loss.

What Is Abnormal Grief?

Abnormal grief occurs when grief is very intense, prolonged or the reaction to grief is delayed.

This reaction is somehow different, the symptoms you experience are out of the normal range and can include

- The belief that this unwanted feeling will never go
- Feeling of worthlessness
- Excessive feelings of guilt
- A prolonged feeling of being unable to function
- Slowing down of thoughts and movement

The reaction to grief can vary, but usually lasts around six months but can sometimes last years

Hypnotherapy can help you move on through the bereavement, grief and loss, helping you to remember the loved one without the negative feelings of guilt, grief, anger or hurt, being able to remember the good and happy times.

For more information see;

     1) Concentration
     2) Relaxation
     3) Socializing
     4) Motivation
     5) Immediate memory
     6) Memory of significant events
     7) Activities of daily living

By improving in these areas, quality of life is also improved while associated symptoms such as anxiety and feeling of agitation are decreased.

Hypno-slimming Programme

I tried all kinds of diets but could not manage to lose the weight I needed to lose. I attended the Peterborough hypnotherapy Clinic and within two weeks had dropped two dress sizes I cound not believe how easy it was.
Thanks again Tim for all your help.

Wendy, Peterborough

Stop Smoking

I stopped smoking after just one session, I never looked back.

Richard, Peterborough

Stop Smoking

I stopped smoking after one session, Tim it was brilliant.

Jo, Peterborough

Stop Smoking

I tried everything to stop smoking, but still could not stop. Nicotine patches and nicotine gum, made me feel ill, my friend suggested I try hypnosis as they had stopped smoking the year before
with Tim at the Peterborough Hypnotherapy Clinic. I booked in for the smoking cessation session with Tim, and stopped smoking on that day, I never even fancied another cigarette.

Barry, Spalding


I brought my 16 year son for a hypnotherapy session at the Peterborough hypnotherapy clinic, to address his fear of balloons popping and the sudden loud noises. In some social settings this had become very embarrassing for him. As you suggested, he didn't "test out" the results of his session, but I am pleased to say they seem to be very good. several months later he is quite relaxed in party environments with balloons, and indeed, when a balloon went off without warning just behind him, he simple commented that the treatment has worked. I also appreciated being able to sit in on the session

Thank You

Anom, Bretton

Stress Management Programme

I visited the Peterborough Hypnotherapy Clinic as felt depressed and had low self esteem and had lost my confidence, my husband had just left me and everything in my life seemed to be going wrong. Tim helped me on the very first visit. I came out feeling better than I had for a long time. I paid for a full course of four sessions which was the best thing I have ever done. My friends and family could see my confidence growing after each session. I can now face things and deal with problems that I never thought I could do.

Thanks Again

Anom, Peterborough
