Do you have difficulty accepting that your loved one has a mental illness? Do you feel guilty that your loved one is ill, or that you can’t make things better, or that you’re not doing enough? Do you sometimes feel anxious or overwhelmed? If so, you are not alone.
Caring for a loved one with mental health issues can invoke feelings of fear, guilt and anxiety. Hypnotherapy can help you gain perspective and feel calmer when life seems like a storm.
Karen Torgerson is a certified hypnotherapist who understands the challenges, highs and lows of supporting a loved one with a serious mental illness. It is in this context that she is pleased to offer other caregivers a free, individual hypnotherapy session.
Appointments take place via videoconference, in the comfort of your own home (yes – you can be hypnotized this way!), as long as you can meet the following requirements:
You have a reliable Internet connection, as well as headphones or ear-buds.
You can lie down on a bed, couch or recliner in a place where you’ll be undisturbed by pets, people or telephones.
You have no psychiatric or personality disorder yourself. (Hypnosis is not a suitable option for a person who suffers from certain disorders.)
