Grief is a totally natural response to loss. Depending on the circumstances of a death of a loved one, complicated grief can develop, which EMDR therapy can help to relieve.
Some signs that grief is becoming a problem that may require intervention are strong negative feelings about the future, numbness and detachment, lasting shock, difficulty acknowledging the death, a feeling that life is empty or meaningless or lasting irritability, bitterness or anger following the death.
EMDR can help people suffering from strong symptoms of complicated grief to grieve effectively with a greater sense of peace. Naturally you will continue to remember those you have lost, but EMDR seeks to lesson negative emotions that are occurring as an unnecessary by-product of your grieving process.
