Hypnosis and hypnotherapy in handling Unfinished business in Bereavement.
For many years hypnosis and hypnotherapy are used to help people to overcome their grief and sorrow triggered by the loss of their loved ones.
Kim suffered from complicated bereavement due to her husband’s sudden death in a traffic accident and her mother’s suicide a within a few months. Hypnosis was used with deep relaxation and grief psychotherapy to achieve imaginative involvement, subjective reality, and constrictive memory to help her to complete the unfinished business. After only two hypnotic sessions, there was significant improvement in her emotional distress and fixation. On the grief journey, Kim was able to achieve a psychological closure to the multiple losses. She learned to let go of sorrow and to divert energy to other positive life aspects. (Ho, Salina.
