Dealing with grief (07) 5373 8566

If you have recently lost someone, it is quite natural to experience grief. It is a process and you will get through it.

At first everything seems at a loss. You may feel empty. You may feel like a huge piece of you is missing. You may just want to pull the sheets over your head. And that’s okay. Its also totally okay to not be okay!
Eventually you get to the point when you realise: You will get through this! You might even get fed up a bit with the crying or the lump in your throat…
Grieving becomes problematic when people get stuck and don’t move through the grieving process. This can be very detrimental for the person’s health and their relationships with others.

Here’s the thing, the person (or animal) for who you are grieving, would not want you to be overcome with grief. They would want you to move on and be happy. You can remember the happy memories and still move on with your life. This does not mean that you are forgetting them or dishonouring them in any way.

You can move forward without the negative connotations that “moving on” may have…

There are so many different facets to overcoming grief. It doesn’t matter whether you have just lost someone or if it was years and years ago. When you feel like you are not making progress or for example feel guilty for being or wanting a new relationship then you might like to give me a call. 07-5373 8566

There may be an unconscious part that still wants to hang on. Because at least it means there still is a connection… Unfortunately though most people I work with don’t actually remember all the good and the happy times they had with the other person. They often have to think hard in order to remember the happy memories. Wouldn’t you want to be able to have access to more of the good memories? Even just spontaneously?

I get it. At the moment it may seems that you can only keep the love and the feeling of connection through the grief… And you want to be able to remember even more and maybe you are afraid that getting rid of the excruciating pain might mean that you haven’t loved enough. Even though you know that that is not true at all!

Remember that childhood friend? Even though you have no idea where they are but when you remember how you used to climb trees or play tag or dress up together it just puts a smile on your face and gives you a good feeling…?

Would you want to remember your loved one in that way too?

I have also helped many people overcome their grief of the loss of their beloved pet. Because they are family too. Some people also tell me that losing their pet was more difficult than losing a sibling or a parent. Our animals are special. They are always forgiving, always loving and always sooo excited to see you coming home…

I even had people come to see me because they had put on lots of weight or thought they had an alcohol or smoking problem. Once we started the session it very quickly became obvious that they were suffering from grief. Grieving can hide behind other problems…

Imagine being able to live again. Recovering from grief is so important. Hence we need to be working with your unconscious processes.
