We have all experienced loss at one point or another whether it be through loss of a relationship, someone leaving us to live/work away, loss of a pet, or through a passing. Loss can have a significant impact on our mental health and as the stress is experienced, the trauma itself can be very difficult for our brains to process all at once. Sometimes the trauma is so significant that the subconscious mind cannot naturally respond as it would in less significant circumstances. A person may feel as if time has been frozen, or that they are not in reality and often experience delayed repercussions which are felt later on. Sometimes the trauma is too huge to process all at once and the subconscious mind tries to process the memory or experience by splitting it up like the pieces of a messy jigsaw puzzle.
With experiencing such trauma, sleep deprivation can interfere with our brains natural processing stimuli called REM sleep. As a result a person may feel empty, fearful, depressed, confused and deeply sad. Although all these emotions are perfectly natural they can go on for longer than is necessary and prolonging the pain.
This is where wingwave can play a significant role in gently helping a client in the bereavement or loss process. wingwave helps to bring the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together so that emotions can move through the client and the client can see and feel differently about their experience.
“I have experienced many losses and I always felt that I carried this grief inside of me. I have had 4 years of counselling on and off which had helped but not lifted the heaviness I carried within. I would comfort eat and smoke and had tried everything to change this. I know my grief and this behaviour was linked. This is when I stumbled across Caroline and the Wingwave treatment. Caroline immediately put me at my ease. She was warm and understanding. By the 6th session I had stopped smoking, and enjoying a juicing diet. But more than this I felt happier, less anxious, more spontaneous, more sociable and my heaviness had gone. The grief I had been carrying was no longer within me holding me down. I am now enjoying my life. A huge thank you to Caroline and Wingwave should be available on the NHS!!” Rosie, Brighton
“Caroline’s Wingwave Sessions have really helped me in the grieving process and I learnt some useful exercises which I can use at home. I now feel calmer and have a different perspective on those particular memories.” C. W – Horsham
