Grief is normally associated with someone’s death but there are actually many situations in life that can bring about grief. Grief is a deep emotional void left a result of some loss, be it a physical loss or an emotional loss.
Grief can be experienced as the result of a relationship break-up, be it for the child of divorcing parents or for the loss/end of a relationship, not necessarily intimate.
It can also be the consequence of not having lived fully a certain period of life, like having missed on a happy childhood or youth, or the realisation of missed opportunities like that of creating a family, or having had to give up on aspirations because of some situational constraints.
But it can also be the result of a financial loss, losing your job or home or also for the loss of a certain life-style, again for example, the change in lifestyle experienced by a child when the parents separate is a direct trigger to grief.
Grief is a deep feeling that if unresolved can lead to depression. Anyone experiencing depression is grieving some sort of loss but not everyone going through grief will develop depression and this depends on the level of supporting relationships the person has available to them.
When grief doesn’t seem to resolve within up to around 2 years-time depending on the cause, it is important to seek professional support in order to close the grieving cycle and move on.
With hypnotherapy the unresolved grief is released so the loss causing event can be placed in the past once and for all thus enabling the person to cherish the memories and move on with their life.
Remember: “Nothing is Impossible, the word itself says I’M POSSIBLE!”
