Trauma, or Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), can be triggered by many different things. It can often occur straight after a stressful event or sometimes weeks, months or even years later.

Perhaps you’ve been a victim of abuse, assault or in an accident, or experienced or witnessed a crime? Whatever you’ve been through, trauma can have a debilitating effect on your everyday life.

You might be struggling with flashbacks, nightmares or distressing images, or physical symptoms such as nausea, shaking or sweating or feeling isolated and withdrawn.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a powerful, extremely effective tool, whether you’re struggling to come to terms with issues in your past or recent distressing events.

At your initial free consultation we’ll discuss the causes of your trauma, your symptoms, and what you’d like to get out of your sessions. Trauma is highly individual, and we’ll take the time to tailor your treatment to you to ensure you get the best out of your hypnotherapy.

In your sessions, you’ll be gently eased into hypnosis. This is a state of focused, heightened awareness. Your conscious mind will be relaxed so we can connect to your subconscious, which stores your thoughts, emotions and all the things that have happened to you.

Your mind has powerful tools and responses when dealing with traumatic events and responding to danger. The evolutionary part of your brain, the primitive ‘fight, flight or freeze’ response, takes control. To safeguard you against future hazards, it constantly reminds you of your painful past traumatic event. This is frustrating because the intellectual part of your mind knows it’s time to move on.

When you’re in a deeply subconscious relaxed state, we can help calm or remove this emotional response. You’ll find you’re able to successfully put your past behind you, and focus on your future. No matter how shocking or tragic the past events we’ll help you to move forwards.
