Due to a reduction in the restrictions on COVID-19 lockdown, the fact that our clinic is considered essential workers, we are now offering consultations either in-person in the clinic, or by video through Facetime or Whatsapp, internationally from anywhere in the world.
Dr Tracie O’Keefe DCH is one of the most highly qualified and experienced clinical hypnotherapists practising in Australia today who has received worldwide recognition and praise for her research and development of clinical procedures.
Are you distressed at losing someone you loved who has died?
Do you feel your life will never be good again?
Have your emotions overwhelmed you due to the loss?
Do you need professional help to regain your hope in life?
Whenever there is death, every culture has a space for mourning and respecting those who are no longer with us, and that’s as it should be. It’s good to remember those who gave us pleasure in our lives and even those who had a difficult time.
Sometimes the bereavement process can become unmanageable and you may need to seek help to cope and move forward in your life. Bereavement counselling can help that transition happen more smoothly.
This does not mean you will forget those who have died and even if for a short time, you do, that does not mean you have lost respect for their memory. Life needs to go on and you sometimes need help to remember the deceased fondly, with pleasure, learning to leave behind the pain of parting. This I see as respectful because it celebrates that life that you still have left.
Would remembering someone well be a good feeling?
There are things that we feel or think or remember about those who have died that cannot be shared with the people around you, so it sometimes helps to talk to a professional whose job it is to care. It is a great honour for a therapist for you to trust us to help you through the bereavement process.
Bereavement need not necessarily be a long, drawn-out, painful procedure, because with the right kind of help and care, the period of bereavement can be shortened and the time of fond remembering can arise.
Do you need help to regain your composure again fast?
The kinds of techniques I use in my practice encompass psychotherapy, bereavement counselling and hypnosis to help you cope and find comfort in your memories.
One of the greatest honours that you can pay to those that have passed on is to be able to remember them with respect and fondly. If the relationship was difficult, that is not always possible, but it helps to remember with peace, and I can help you with that process.
