Do you need hypnosis to help you recover from PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder)?
I’ve treated many people for PTSD including soldiers, police, emergency services staff, and victims of accidents and sexual abuse.
The standard theory is, and you may have been told, that it takes you years to get over PTSD or that you never will.
That is really not true and completely wrong.
You may even have been labeled mentally ill and highly medicated, and you have bought into that label.
Your symptoms can be:
Sudden uncontrollable flashbacks, insomnia, claustrophobia, androphobia, agoraphobia, night terrors, paranoia, depression, high anxiety, panic attacks, blurred vision, suicidal and so on.
It can be like you’re in an unescapable nightmare.
You might not be able to work and the people around you become terrified about when you might have a major episode.
Your relationships become damaged.
Hypnosis can help you move forward and get your life back – fast!
However, many of these symptoms are physical, not mental and all the counselling in the world won’t help you change them.
Not only am I clinical hypnotherapist but also a medical hypnotist, psychotherapist, naturopath and experienced trauma therapist.
So. a lot of the therapy is about changing your physical as well as your mental experiences.
How can I be so sure these methods work?
As a child I grew up with two abusive parents who made us homeless and I ended up in government homes; it was living nightmare.
Over the years I built a pretty solid and happy life.
But 10 years ago, something happened in my family and I developed severe PTSD.
I was a clinician treating PTSD in others and all my childhood horrors came back flooding back. I really didn’t see it coming, because PTSD just suddenly consumes you without any prior notice.
I had to take my own medicine, so to speak, to get past the PTSD.
I had to do everything I teach people to do, no matter how scary that might have been at the time.
And sure enough I got better, and more resilient than I was before.
Hypnosis changes your mind and your body
PTSD is being stuck in the flight or fight response and you perceive you are facing imminent danger.
It’s a revolving door – like a scratched gramophone record when the needle keeps going back and playing the same part of a song again and again.
Sympathy won’t help you. In fact, it will feed your reluctance to go forward by stoking the idea that the PTSD state is the safest place to be, in the alarm state, but it’s not and never will be.
This is why by using hypnosis to help you control your body as well as your mind and emotions, we can help you break that delusional state.
When you control your body and it refuses to keep join in the PTSD game, it breaks the PTSD state so you can heal naturally.
You can either attend my clinic in Sydney or we can work via telemedicine online.
