Learning to Detach from a Relationship
Our Emotions Run Deep,
Especially in Personal Relationships
Even before emerging into this world, we become deeply connected to someone beyond ourselves. We know how easily babies respond to their mother’s voice, her mood swings, and her habits, such as the type of music she listens to. Our brains are literally hard-wired to make a connection with thousands of people, ideas and places in our world. Consider the full spectrum of human emotions we access throughout our lives: from ecstasy, astonishment and curiosity to boredom, defiance, jealousy and depression.
We’ve All Been There:
Sometimes Emotional Detachment Causes A lot of Pain
While many couples seek a relationship with someone who shares their core value set, others will look for someone with values and beliefs that differ from their own. An intelligent, serious college student might prefer dating a man seeking a masters in physics, while a pilot may find an artist’s lifestyle enticing. When engaged in these relationships, our subconscious mind is constantly evaluating whether our partner’s values match ours, or whether they’re radically different from ours.
Inevitably, at some point all relationships reach a point where communication temporarily breaks down. During these difficult moments, I believe our Achilles Heel lies in our inability to clearly see ourselves the way others see us. This affects our capacity to perceive both our limiting patterns and strengths, as well as to effectively resolve conflicts. Also, over time some people change dramatically, causing a permanent breakup of the relationship. Suddenly, the ex-partner is faced with the painful dilemma of learning how to make a radical adjustment to their life without their significant other.
How Can I Learn to Feel Emotional Detachment from My Ex Partner?
Naturally, the fear and angst a person feels after a breakup can sometimes be paralyzing. The build-up of anxiety in the limbic system of your brain from Emotional Detachment can cause obsessive thinking, insomnia and even depression. Hypnotherapy provides immediate relief by deeply relaxing your subconscious mind, restoring you to a greater sense of balance, and a calmer perspective.
Neuroscience has shown us that we are infinitely more creative than we realize. Your subconscious imagination enhances your ability to emotionally detach from a former partnership. Deep hypnotic states have enabled clients to accelerate their ability to radically accept their new circumstances, while perceiving new opportunities for growth. After one session, one client informed me that after seeing her former partner in a café, she observed “there’s the man I used to date.”
Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT) has also proven to be highly effective for redirecting the fear and panic response accompanying the end of a romance. The protocols for BWRT are different than hypnosis, and focus on blocking the panic response produced by the reptilian brain. It is an astounding process that is already gaining recognition amongst therapists and psychotherapists to help with Emotional Detachment.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your relationship, treatment for Emotional Detachment normally takes anywhere from three to six sessions.
