Symptoms of grief

Grief affects us all differently . It impacts on our emotional stability, causing stress and trauma. When grief is prolonged or repressed resulting in anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties   As well as anger, guilt and emotional trauma. In addition grief sometimes manifesting itself through physical pain, addictions or sleep problems.

Grief is such a personal thing requiring a personal treatment. Fortunately hypnotherapy gets to the root of the problem bringing long-lasting relief.

How Hypnotherapy Helps With Grief

Processing

Many of us just need to talk through what we’ve dealt with and how we feel but don’t want to burden loved ones or friends. We try and protect those close to us so talking to a professional allows us to unburden without this worry. Hypnotherapy allows you to do this whilst also understanding the complex psychological and emotional responses you’ve used to cope and the healthiest way of moving on.

Regression

It’s not unusual for us to go into auto-pilot when dealing with grief. Many  preferring to concentrate on the practicalities. Instead of allowing themselves time to feel. This is a self-protection method. It can work short term, but hiding from our feelings causing both physical and emotional problems in the future.

In addition a recent event maybe triggering feelings from our past that we never quite got over. Helping people go back and deal with those feelings and experiences bringing about greater understanding and healing.

Emotional Support

Grief is complex because difficult situations usually involving more than one emotional response. We may be grieving the loss of a loved one but feeling resentment or anger towards their behaviour, or feeling guilty about how we left things.

Or if you’re grieving after a divorce, why are you really so upset? What are you really going to miss or what are you afraid of ? Answering these questions bringing understanding of our grief . As well as finding new happiness.

Some of the most common signs of chronic grief issues are:

  • Depression
  • Sleep issues
  • ‘Nothing else matters’ mentality
  • Fear and expecting the worst
  • Hypochondria or overreaction to risk
  • Distrust of people trying to help
  • Nightmares or replaying events over and over
