Broken heart? Does therapy offer help?

Large numbers of people with a broken heart need psychotherapy. Heartbreak may be acutely traumatic. Though many overcome their grief after some time, there are others who are not able to forget their beloved even after years. Moreover, some dwell upon their sorrow till they breath their last. Time is often looked upon as the best healer. But even the best of the cure fails if you do not want to be cured? It’s strange, but true! It’s here that psychotherapy is required. The sufferer’s psyche needs to be restored back to health.

Here’s what the famous psychotherapist and author, Thomas Moore, says about heartbreak, “at one time or another, most people go through a period of sadness, trial, loss, frustration, or failure that is so disturbing and long-lasting that it can be called a dark night of the soul.”

Psychotherapy helps in more than one ways. Here are a few of these.

  • Provides a Clear Picture of Life – A psychologist may help you provide with a clearer picture of your life. When you go through a heartbreak, you are too obsessed with your lover. Being too emotional at the time, you can’t figure logically as to what is actually important for you right now. Seek psychotherapy if you can’t figure out as to what’s going wrong. You have been deeply in love. Now, that your partner is not there in your life any more, you are not willing to accept the reality. It always requires courage to accept the truth. There is also a truth that is even more important. And that is that though your relationship has come to and end, your life has not. You are still there! The entire world goes around you as usual. If you make an effort, you can forget and forgive your lover/spouse and move on with the world.
  • Helps save You from Further Trouble ‘Psychotherapy provided by an expert psychologist may save you from further trouble. The point to be noted is that the consequences of a heartbreak do not include emotional suffering only. Intense feelings may result in acute trauma as well. A minor heart attack may actually make your heart break, in case, you are totally unable to forget your mate. Other health problems may also result.
  • Helps You Stay Away from Depression ‘Counselling provided by a psychologist helps you stay away from depression. When you are heart broken, you are in a gloomy state of mind. Even if you are lucky enough not to suffer a severe health problem, a prolonged state of depression is a problem serious enough in itself. A depressed state of mind may result in suicides.
  • Helps You Retain Whatever is Left & Live a Normal Life ‘Why should you allow an unhappy personal life to ruin the professional life as well? Psychotherapy may help you tremendously to calm down whenever you feel that the emotional trauma has been more than what you could handle on your own. It’s only when you are in a relaxed state of mind that you can manage your financial and social status better.
