Over the years most of us have had to deal with the pain of grief and loss. It’s a sad and necessary part of life. When the leaving is unexpected, like in the bereavement of suicide or accident, or ending of a significant relationship it’s painful and difficult to compute this tragic loss.
Yet there are often so many unspoken sentiments, love shared, conversations unexpressed.
After losing my Uncle to suicide in my teens, I struggled with so many unanswered questions. I was angry, hurt and felt betrayed. Guilt and a sense of over-responsibility plagued me in the quiet of night. It would come and go, sending me low.
I imagined what I could of said, did to stop him from hurting himself. Of course life carried on but there was a huge gap my teen age self felt keenly over the years.
Grief is a wonderful expression of the love for the loss of our loved ones or the ending of something special. This felt heavier.
As you will see on my video, a Resource Therapy session relieved me of the unresolved emotional burden. I was freed from my resentment towards my father, the abandonment of my Uncle.
It was the AHA understanding from an emotional perspective which changed my inner landscape.
Intellectually as both a person and a mental health professional I ‘knew’ he was suffering from a dark depression.
This emotional freedom and release I experienced sold me on the power of Resource Therapy in healing.
I had years of therapy! At great cost. Yet in this one session I gained emotional closure and inner peace. Free too as I was a client volunteer!
There are many treatments and therapies offering wonderfully supportive grief and loss processing.
Resource Therapy is the one I use with amazing effect. Long held hurt is released in the therapy hour. Guilt and shame replaced with love, acceptance and personal peace.
There are clearly defined steps to have what I call ‘Closure Conversations.’ Here we apply the Resource Therapy steps to address and process burdensome grief, shift shame, and let go of guilt.
These sessions I have are some of the most moving and heartfelt therapy I have been privileged to facilitate.
Here’s the latest from the Resource Therapy Institute Australia YouTube Channel – on Closure Conversations. Please see below and I would love it if you would be so kind to like, subscribe and help!
