Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that develops out of some kind of extreme psychological event that usually involved the threat of injury or death. This can be war, rape, assault, or domestic abuse, as just a few examples.
The symptoms usually show themselves as flashback episodes, nightmares, associating events in your life with that prior event, emotional numbing, despondency, hyper-vigilance, anger, and physical manifestations of headaches, dizziness, and agitation.
Fortunately, hypnosis is prime material for PTSD treatment. Because the images of the episode are so vivid, it’s easier to glide into the hypnotic induction. We can use that damaging memory and re-purpose it to fit a better emotional and mental framework.
So for example, if you witnessed a friend die of a disease in an army camp and the image of him suffering on his bed haunts you every day, we will use that image in all its detail to help you break free from the negative associations.
We will help you rise above, we will help you say goodbye, and we will get your life as it is today back to where you want it.
I just want to mention that for those survivors who have PTSD, I have only respect for your strength. Of course, I don’t have total understanding because no one can truly understand what you’ve lived through, and it’s insulting for anyone to pretend like they can. But I do have the skills to help give you your life back. And that’s exactly what I plan to do.
And for those who served their country in times of war, thank you. You are all heroes.
