Hospice Imagery Helps Mom with Son’s Suicide

15 Oct

We thought this was a wonderfully creative use of our guided imagery for Hospice and Palliative Care, which guides the listener through the process of taking care of unfinished business, leaving loved ones and life as we know it.  

Check out what this therapist did in working with a mother suffering from traumatic grief of 2 years duration, in the wake of her son’s suicide.

Hi Belleruth,

We met in December when I took your workshop at the last NICABM conference in Hilton Head.

I just wanted to let you know that your Hospice CD, was very helpful with a client of mine who has been grieving her beloved son's suicide for over 2 years.

I asked her to listen to the guided meditation as his proxy, imagining him being able to go through the journey on it.  She was transformed after doing so.

Your work touches many lives! Thanks for all you do.
