The loss of someone - human or animal - that we care about is difficult enough. If the death is linked to a sudden traumatic illness or to a traumatic accident it can feel impossible.
Quite often people remember the traumatic moments and say, for example, "I'll never be able to get those pictures out of my mind". Whenever they think of what has happened they see traumatic images in their mind's eye, preventing them from being able to enjoy other memories of happier times. For some people the traumatic memories affect their lives for many years.
Sadly people sometimes believe that this is the only way they can remember. They believe they have to keep the traumatic images in case they lose all their memories and can't remember their horse (or dog or whoever they have lost) at all.
This really isn't so. It is possible for the traumatic images to become 'history' and for images of happier times to be the first that come to mind.
This can be a surprisingly quick process. The methods that Jo uses are very effective and there is no need to talk through what has happened.
A single session will often make a significant difference.
