Trauma imprints upon the brain and body in such a way that the body continues to stay in fight of flight mode. The mind-body connection is very strong and the way some people process events could be very different from the next person based on their personality and how suggestible they are. What the mind can’t process, is put in the body. Sometimes people continue to live as though the trauma is happening in the present.
Hypnotherapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an evidence-based treatment and can effectively treat the symptoms as well as the underlying causes. It is highly effective in the treatment of PTSD, because it goes right to the root of these symptoms. Hypnotherapy can directly address the effects of the trauma. During various hypnotherapy sessions we can directly access information that is stored in the physical body, the subconscious mind and, the energetic fields. The actual traumatic event can be examined, you can claim back your emotions surrounding it, process and express it; negative beliefs or conclusions around it can be released and transformed. Many life long behavior patterns will also be addressed.
You will be given multiple tools, resources, and opportunities to take back a sense of control. Physical anchors will be provided to lock in all the positive suggestions via mind-body connection. Hypnotherapy for PTSD helps to remind you of your own strength and virtues. This is incredibly healing. One of the primary goals in hypnotherapy is restoration and healing of the self.
