Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors.Whatever your personal symptoms are, grief and bereavement counseling have been proven to help.
EMDR therapy is integrative psychotherapy and uses bilateral stimulation to repeatedly activate opposite sides of the brain. Therapists often use eye movements to facilitate bilateral stimulation. EMDR seems to help the brain reprocess the trapped memories to resume standard information processing. Therapists often use EMDR to help clients uncover and process beliefs that developed from relational traumas of childhood abuse and/or neglect.
Mindfulness-based therapy is designed for people who suffer from repeated depression or chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of being here now with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times find that learning mindfulness-based skills help considerably reduce their chances of depression returning.
EFT is an approach to therapy treatment based on the premise that our emotions are critical to our identity and guide decision-making. When we lack awareness of our feelings or avoid unpleasant emotions, we cannot use the information provided by these emotions. Unlike other therapeutic approaches, EFT assumes that emotion can be a source of healing and works with specific emotions to increase adaptation.
