Loss, breakup and sorrow

    Grief is part of the process of healing and recovering from a loss.

Grieving is a personal experience with a strong cultural influence; there is no pattern regarding the length of mourning and grief.

Experiencing a loss takes a heavy toll on your emotional health. Regardless of how you grieve your loss, grief is suffering. There always comes a point when you cannot take it anymore, when you want to let go and step away from your painful feelings.

As you know, you are the master of your destiny. This is true despite the popular belief that happiness and misery are caused by external factors and events that happen to you, events such as: health issues, significant loss, aging, family, career, financial issues, social tides, loneliness, life’s purpose, self-esteem, etc.

However, you are not passively undergoing any of the above life experiences. You are the one who makes sense of these experiences and perceives them as terrible, stressful, emotionally neutral or joyful events. Thus, your life is a dynamic process shaped more by how you respond to what you perceive  is happening to you, than it is by what actually happens.

When you’re ready to let go of your loss and move on, I can help you ease the painful feelings that are holding you back. You can’t be free of your past if you don't release the negative emotions attached to it. Somatic hypnotherapy can help you to release the sadness, anger, rage, resentment, blame, terror and the underlying feelings of pain, helplessness, and fear. This therapy can help you to ease your pain and to remain calm and rational when thinking or talking about your loss.

When you feel overwhelmed by strong feelings, you are prone to think, say and do things that you would not do if you were in a calm state of mind. When you have difficulties managing your reactions, and you neglect and allow your powerful feelings to pile up, then over time they can wreak havoc on all aspects of your emotional and somatic health. Unfortunately, beginning the healing and recovery process is not simple. When your grief lasts too long or is too intense, when you are going to extremes to avoid thinking or talking about your loss, when you have no more tears to cry, when you’re overwhelmed and incapacitated because of your persistent pain, sorrow, sadness and fear, then you need help.

When you live with unpleasant feelings on a daily basis, I would not count on learning to cope with your negative feelings overnigh, or ridding yourself of the knots in your stomach just by thinking or talking about it, or gaining a better understanding of what is going on. Whatever feelings arise against your will, they will not succumb to your reason. Only what is born of reason can eventually be banned by the critical judgment alone. Therefore, somatic hypnosis therapy is always an option to consider, whether you are at the beginning of your misery, disappointed with other approaches or you are already living with unpleasant feelings and you are tired of learning how to cope.

In real life, you won't really "think" about whether you're in love or if you're terrified of something. You feel it and trust your feelings. Because what you feel is more powerful than what you think about what you feel, and more than likely, your life will be driven by your feelings, like it or not! While good feelings are driving your life on the path of health, happiness, serenity and fulfillment, unpleasant feelings foster negative outcomes. Yet, when there isn't any feeling involved, you'll most likely act rationally.

Unlike conventional hypnotherapy approaches that focus on adding a fresh layer of positive emotions on top of your fears and traumas, the somatic hypnotherapy is all about releasing the past by rearranging the emotional reading of your past traumatic experiences. This therapy works with your model of the world, involving you in your therapy process, so that changes are more easily accepted and long lasting. Once you release the causal emotions of your sorrow, you can change your perception of those past experiences, which will in turn adjust your behaviour.

Thanks to privileged access to your subconsciousness, somatic hypnotherapy remains the tool of choice to get over a painful bereavement, because it is your subconscious mind that keeps you stuck in your past even though your rational mind understands that it's time to move on. Somatic hypnotherapy can help you to ease your grief by releasing the root source of your painful sadness. Your heart will forget all painful memories while your brain will keep sharp memories of the factual details. Once your wounds are healed, you will be able to emotionally distance yourself from the losses you suffered and detach yourself from the past.

Hypnotherapy can help you overcome your grief and regain the joy of life. Somatic hypnotherapy won't overwrite or change your thoughts or your feelings, but it can help you to think, feel and live the way you want by helping you to release anything that holds you in the past and stops you from thinking, feeling or living the way you want. Thus, you can easily reintegrate into your social environment and resume life as it felt before the period of mourning.

I can help you to develop a sense of renewed meaning and purpose in life and to reawaken your interest in new relationships, sex, hobbies, recreation, or other things you used to find enjoyable. I can help you regain your confidence. I can help you to become the person you always wanted to be.

Whatever your grieving may be, don't allow it to cripple your life.
