Relationship Grief

Relationship grief

Julie and her boyfriend had recently ended their long term relationship, and Julie was unable to get over it. The major problem was that she knew they were not compatible, but still loved him very deeply, and several prior re-attempts at the relationship had been unsuccessful, and deepened the pain of the eventual final break. She wanted to move on and make a new life, but was effectively grieving the loss of the relationship in a seemingly deepening spiral. Over a few long sessions, using NLP techniques, the waves of grief were transformed into a deep appreciation of the beauty of the good things of the relationship, and painting the picture of the world she would be building for herself in the future. She still has all those tools to use whenever she needs them, and for fun, when she doesn’t.
