Work With Me
How I work is driven by the most important person in this process and that’s you! Our sessions can be weekly, they can be fortnightly, and they can even be a one-off. Good to know when you’re facing a difficult time and you don’t know how you’re going to get through it.
But what actually happens depends on you. Not everyone wants to talk, each session. Sometimes a different approach is needed. A (hands off) energy healing session. A creative activity. It’s your call.
And you’re free to talk about your loved one in any way that feels right for you, including bringing in photos. There may be times when you just need to feel connected to your loved one and talk about memories with me, that may not be possible otherwise.
Sometimes losing a loved one is so traumatic, that a specialist type of EMDR trauma therapy is required to bring back a state of balance. As an Accredited EMDR Practitioner, this is something I can help you with.
Our sessions are designed to help you feel better, feel good, in the quickest, easiest and safest way possible. So you can start to enjoy life, which is how it should be.
People might say you have to move forward. You might even agree with them. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It isn’t. If your goal is to feel better and to feel good this means doing some inner work, which means working with often difficult and painful emotions. Ultimately it is this process that will sustain your goals.
Time a Great Healer? Not on its Own, it Isn’t
It’s often said that time is a great healer. Sadly, that’s not the case. Time can heal but to a limited degree. Yes, symptoms of grief can appear to reduce over time but they are just suppressed, they don’t disappear or go away; they just transform into something else like explosive anger, or depression. Others may experience a continuation or worsening of grief no matter what time has passed.
Without doing the inner work you won’t gain new insights, and new perspectives which lead to feeling better, feel good. And you only do that work if you set aside time for it. That’s why even making your first appointment can be so liberating. It’s the knowledge it brings that you’re doing something just for you. That you’ve started down the path that will in due course see the end of that walking under the dark cloud you’ve come to know so well.
