Hypnotherapy for PTSD & Trauma


PTSD or, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a series of symptoms that arise from a traumatic event which occurs in one’s life. Historically it was thought to be suffered only by war veterans. However now it is recognised as common for people who have experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse as a child or adult. It is very common in people who were raised in a family where a parent had addiction or alcohol issues. Very frequently it goes undiagnosed. The symptoms of PTSD usually consist of:

clear blue sky and beach
  • Intrusive flashbacks (reliving a scene)
  • Nightmares or recurrent bad dreams, disordered sleep
  • Anxiety disorders resulting in chronic physical pain, teeth grinding
  • Persistent stress and tension
  • Inability to concentrate, memory issues
  • Over reacting to situations with seemingly little control
  • Inability to relax the mind and the body
  • Inability to concentrate, memory issues
  • Sudden outbursts of rage or temper

Hypnotherapy gives a clear understanding of how the mind works which is really useful for people with PTSD. It enables you to get a better understanding of what is happening in your brain and how to can work with that constructively.

Hypnotherapy is primarily a relaxing experience, which is valuable in itself for people with PTSD. The use of a daily recording which I provide, encourages the brain to function more effectively and provides a valuable daily window of relaxation. Hypnotherapy works on the subconscious mind, which is where the triggers and issues are, thus making it most effective for PTSD.

As the Wellness Institute website states; “Because hypnotherapy is primarily a method for accessing and treating the subconscious, it’s perfect for PTSD and countless other issues that originate in some type of trigger or locked away memory.”

The treatment begins with the FREE initial consultation, when we look at how the brain works. The number of sessions needed will depend on each individual and their condition, progress rate, and commitment to change, but you will always be in control of the sessions.
