Hi Jess

I'm not sure much helps other than allowing the emotions out and letting them flow through you. It will get better in time. One thing that helped me was taking a long walk after each therapy session and one each day. That is the time I would deliberately think about this stuff. I find if you set a definite time each day, it helps keep it in the background the rest of the time.
