Hypnotherapy for Bereavement, Grief and Loss in Tottenham, North London
At some point in our lives, we will most likely have to face the heartache of losing someone or something, we care deeply about. We may feel a range of emotions and sensations such as shock, emotional numbness, anger, guilt and regret. We may also feel depressed, exhausted and shut down. The pain of losing something or someone we care so deeply about can seem so monumental that we may feel like we can never recover from the loss. Yet, while we each have our own methods of coming to terms with bereavement and grief, for those who are unable to process these difficult emotions, such losses can leave deep emotional scars and potentially long-term emotional difficulties.
What are the stages of bereavement, grief and loss?
One of the first responses to a bereavement is one of shock and disbelief. Denial normally follows as the bereaved find it difficult to accept the reality of the loss. For example, you might try to tell yourself that life is just the same as it was before. These feelings of denial may then progress into feelings of anger and even guilt. These emotions can manifest themselves in a variety of different ways and can include blaming others for our loss, becoming easily agitated and having emotional outbursts.
Subsequently, a period of depression may follow which can include symptoms such as sleepiness, irritability, changes in appetite, physical pains, loss of motivation and social withdrawal. You may feel that life simply does not have a purpose anymore.
At some point, you may move to a position of acceptance whereby you realise that life must go on. Whilst you may still think about the person or object that you have lost, these thoughts may become less intense and less frequent, allowing you to regain your energy and motivation. However, reaching this final stage can take considerable time, and is a process that cannot be hurried.
It’s really important to know that everyone experiences grief and loss differently and as with all emotional experiences there is no right or wrong, there is simply moving from feeling bad to feeling good.

R’s experience “ I lost my mum suddenly and my whole world fell apart, everyone was great to start with and then after the funeral, they went back to their lives and I didn’t know what to do. Working with Lou gave me a safe place and support when I needed it most”.
