A broken heart can be difficult to put back together, and no amount of ice cream and Air Supply can quickly repair the pain of breaking up with somebody you may have loved deeply. Whether you’ve been dumped, did the dumping or participated in a mutual split, suddenly finding yourself alone can trigger a wave of difficult emotions and feelings that can be tough to ignore. Hypnotherapy is a handy tool that can be used to good effect in overcoming the pain and anguish of getting over an ex.
From “It’s not you, it’s me,” to “There’s someone else,” nothing can prepare you for the upheaval that terminating a relationship can cause. Once you emerge from the shock and pain of the breakup itself, the real challenge begins – getting over your ex-partner, once and for all.
Whether it’s the end of a six-month rollercoaster fling or the final chapter of a years-long marriage, one of the most difficult problems to overcome at the end of a relationship are the lingering feelings of no longer sharing your life with someone who you were once very close to. The profound loneliness that comes with losing your partner to aching for them to be back in your life, sometimes, getting over an ex can take many, many years.
A Brain That is Wired to Love
While classic literature has always referred to the heart as the source of both love and pain, in truth, these powerful emotions emanate from our brains. When we fall in love, the mind is flooded with chemicals and hormones that make us feel giddy and happy. Unfortunately, when these feelings of affection sour, those same chemicals turn on us and leave us depressed and miserable. This can have a severely detrimental effect on our state of mind, permeating into almost every aspect of our lives, from our job to eating habits.
It’s All About Letting Go
One of the biggest challenges faced when recovering from a break up is finding a way to let go. When we suddenly find ourselves alone, it is easy to cling to the thing that kept this loneliness at bay – the person we once shared a relationship with. By hanging on to past memories, we cover up the pain for short periods at a time, only to have feelings of despair return with a vengeance when we come crashing back down to reality in remembering our loss.
Many people turn to drugs and alcohol in an attempt to drown out these feelings of misery, but when we sober up, we realize that the feelings are still there, often amplified by the toxins left behind.
So, how do we begin the process of getting over our exes? While clinical psychology can address some issues and help you to move past feelings of longing, this therapy can get very expensive and often requires long and difficult introspection in working through the process of letting go.
Reprogramming the Mind
Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive treatment that revolves around using relaxation and a calm state of mind to address issues ranging from eating disorders to pain management and addiction. The very nature of hypnotherapy makes it a potent tool in helping us to move on with our lives by training the mind to work for you instead of against you.
Hypnotherapists use various techniques to induce a state of deep relaxation, quietening the subconscious and creating a mindset that is susceptible to suggestion. These suggestions come in the form of positive reinforcement and affirmations, tapping into your subconsciousness and reprogramming the part of the brain hanging on to a former partner.
While the memories of your past relationship will always remain, hypnotherapy helps patients to overcome painful feelings and to let go of the emotional ties they still have to a former partner. By creating imagery that helps the mind to accept letting go or laying affirmations that remind the client that everything is going to be OK, hypnotherapy is a safe and effective treatment that can put your aching heart (and mind) at ease.
