19 Jul When Complicated Grief Doesn’t Go Away and How PSYCH-K® Can Help.
Grief is born when someone significant dies, and if that person remains significant, grief will remain also.
Grief after the death of a loved one is experienced differently from person to person.
It can be a rollercoaster of feelings: intense sadness, numbness and anger.
Where there is love, appreciation and fond memory, there will also be sadness, yearning and pain and we can experience them all at the same time.
Grief is an expression of this love and appreciation.
But, for some people, the feelings of intense, constant loss remain front and centre, even after years, and impacts their ability to resume their lives.
This is called “Complicated Grief” and it is the feeling of being stuck in an intense and debilitating state of mourning.
- Intense longing and yearning for your deceased loved one
- Intrusive thoughts or images of your loved one
- Denial of the death or sense of disbelief
- Imagining that your loved one is alive
- Searching for your deceased loved one in familiar places
- Avoiding things that remind you of your loved one
- Extreme anger or bitterness over your loss
- Feeling that life is empty or meaningless
Grief doesn’t just manifest as emotional symptoms.
It also involves physical symptoms such as
- Aches and pains
- Tightness in the chest, shortness of breath
- Inability to focus
- Appetite changes or digestive issues
- Lower immune function
Kristin Meekhoff (widow, speaker and author of “A Widows Guide to Healing”) has researched extensively and believes that putting a lid on the emotional distress of grief isn’t the answer and can do damage. Often our culture doesn’t let us fully explore or release our feelings and anguish around grief.
If you can relate to this, I would like to help you.
By opening up in a PSYCH-K ® session with me I will not only let you talk about your loss, I will allow you the space to let go of any judgements, discomfort and expectations you might be holding onto as well.
I am ready to hold your hand, walk with you as you release negative energy and beliefs around your grief.
Using PSYCH-K® I will help decrease the intensity of your distress and help you reach a level of constructive coping. It’s not a matter of forgetting or “moving on”, but a way to find more hope and more love within your grief.
Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions.
