Hypnotherapy for TraumaPTSD / Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Today the word 'trauma' has become a part of our everyday vocabulary, yet it is a word that is often misused.
When used in a psychological context, the term 'trauma' refers to an emotional response that far exceeds the usual level of distress and discomfort that might ordinarily be experienced. It is almost certainly related to an intensely disturbing event or events that have occurred at some time in the person's past.
I am now looking forward to the future, instead of fearing it...
Such an event or events may have been the result of sexual, physical and/or emotional injury, the consequence of difficult experiences that the traumatised person was forced to go through.
Trauma and PTSD Symptoms
Most often, shock or denial are the typical responses to trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, while longer term symptoms of trauma usually include mood swings, and unpredictable emotions, frightening flash-backs, and physical symptoms such as headaches, cold sweats, and nauseaus feelings.
All of these feelings are natural, yet they were not meant to last. With the traumatized person, they remain for far too long, and he or she can find it difficult to move forward with their life.
Trauma can damage relationships and impact negatively on work, closing down options and restricting to a life lived in the shadow of the past. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can turn what was once a normal existence into a living hell, with each day and night bringing even greater disturbance and upheaval.
The good news is that with correctly applied hypnotherapy, we can help people experiencing trauma or PTSD symptoms to let go of the past and move on with their life.
A useful way to view trauma is as a wound that has not healed. With the right kind of therapeutic help, however, it is a wound that can indeed heal. Once the healing is complete, the wound closes and becomes a scar. The facts have not changed, and the scar remains, but the hurt is no longer there to fester and damage.
Perhaps the most disruptive form of trauma is PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The nightmare of PTSD is in a league of its own, in its ability to turn a person's life upside down and inside out. It is a condition capable of causing terrible distress.
I am not what happened to me. I am what I chose to become...
