PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is frequently associated with witnessing or experiencing horrific incidents, such as road accidents, personal attacks, surgery or war. Most people, will in time, recover from such experiences without needing help. Others though maybe less fortunate, traumatic experiences can set off a reaction that can last for many months or years.
Symptoms of PTSD include chronic anxiety, flashbacks or nightmares, irritability, insomnia, inability to concentrate, avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma, decreased interest in activity, detachment, emotional numbness. Often the memory is forgotten but the painful feelings such as anxiety, panic, self disgust, anger, being powerless / in danger is continually triggered in the present.
With the help of hypnosis these stresses can be gently approached to find a way of putting the memories behind you and improving the quality of your life.
Hypnotherapy can take you through a very gentle process of relaxation and reprogramming your subconscious so that you understand and feel that the danger is now over, and help you to work through feelings and thoughts to a more positive outcome.
