Most of us, in our day-to-day lives, will encounter a situation which causes anxiety or stress and we cope with it. But a severely traumatic event can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which can change our outlook on life and requires treatment. In addition, the retention of a bad memory linked to a past event can hinder normal everyday life and create a very negative outlook and excessive worrying that may be difficult to stop.
The NHS says someone who has PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt among others. Those suffering from PTSD, trauma and retention of bad memories may also have problems sleeping and these symptoms are often severe and persistent enough to have a significant impact on the person’s day-to-day life.
Hypnotherapy is a method for accessing and treating the subconscious mind, where your memories are stored and it is, therefore, perfect for PTSD and countless other issues that originate in some type of trigger or locked away memory.
Through hypnotherapy, I can help you to gain control over your fear, release the emotions associated with the bad memory and help you to avoid falling back into negative thinking patterns whenever you encounter a trigger.
Clients who I have treated to release past trauma and bad memories report feeling lighter and more relaxed than they have done for a long time.
