Hypnotherapy could help you to cope with the end of your relationship
I’m going through a spell of seeing several clients for issues relating to the end of their relationships. It seems to be a difficult time for relationships in Reading, London, Thame, Wallingford and Oxford. Covid 19 certainly isn’t making things easier for anybody at the time of updating this page. So many relationships which would have flourished in normal times were stillborn because of this pandemic. So many marriages have foundered under the additional strain.
Some people can cope with the loss of a relationship. They are able to process their grief in a healthy manner and move on. I work with many, however, who cannot. Depression, despair, anxiety and even suicidal ideation can affect those for whom a straightforward grief process proves impossible.
The one thing these people have in common is that they imagine that they should be feeling differently. They refuse to expect the validity of their emotions. They demand that they should be helped to feel happier, less hurt, less alone, more this, that and the other.
I also offer hypnotherapy online for divorce related issues, using vsee, zoom or whatsap. Please get in touch for more details as to how this works.
Feelings can’t be banished, indefinitely
You can’t, however, keep them away indefinitely. ‘Sorrow floats’, as the Voice of the Beehive once sang. You can’t keep a cork down forever. One day your feelings will force themselves to the surface and you’ll just have to deal with it.
Feelings are nothing more that chemicals (adrenaline, cortisol, endorphins and the like) which cause physiological responses. You can learn to block them but the chemicals are still there. One day they’ll overwhelm your ability to pretend they don’t exist.
Let’s not allow it to get to that point. If you’re finding it difficult to move through this difficult stage of your life then there are ways in which you could learn to make it easier for yourself.
Hypnotherapy could help you to cope with these emotions and to allow them to pass. Hypnotherapy could help you to cope with the grief and to move forwards. You can learn to get past this and you will. I’d be glad to help you.
It’s never going to be fun to go through a divorce
But it isn’t going to be as bad as you think. You can learn to experience them without all the negative labels. You can learn to experience them as if you’re standing alongside them. You don’t need to wallow in them or spend weeks, months, years, unable to function.
Why should it be easy? Feelings are hurt. Things have been said. Dreams seem wrecked and life will never be quite as you once expected it to be.
None of this means, however, that you won;t be able to recover and to build a new and better life. You simply have to go through the bad times in order to get back on track again.
You can do it and I’ll be glad to help you!
That’s a difficult adjustment to make.
Life will go on and new dreams will emerge and strengths will be forged in the fire of adversity. You will learn to move on. You will learn to trust and to love anew. New dreams will form themselves from the ashes of the past and everything, in time, will assume its rightful perspective.
Allowing yourself the luxury of feeling bad will make you feel better. That sounds weird but it’s how a former client once described this process to me. Suppressing emotions can be effective, for a while, but it’s costly. Let those emotion come and they’ll pass all the more easily.
