Effective hypnotherapy treatment to free you from PTSD and trauma

Have you suffered with PTSD or trauma for too long? If so, then let hypnotherapy help to set you free.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a condition that can develop following any terryfying or traumatic event that threatens your safety or makes you feel helpless.

First of all, Post Traumatic Stress isn’t a mental illness. So rule any thoughts out that you’re mentally ill, because you’re not, but it may feel like you are!

Secondly, you aren’t broken, so you don’t need fixing.

The law of cause and effect is that something happened to make you feel the way you do. PTSD is the same, something happened to make you feel and respond the way you do.

Conventional medicine treats the symptoms and not the root cause. Talking therapies can help, medication can help, running and hiding can help, drinking can help, but they're rarely a long term strategy or permanent solution to emotional peace.

Given time, some people can get over their experiences without help or treatment for PTSD. However for others, a traumatic experience can set off a reaction which can last for months and years, causing them to re-experience that horrible occurrence in the form of memories, flashbacks, nightmares etc

What are some of the causes of PTSD?

Most people associate PTSD with military combat and battle-scarred soldiers, but any overwhelming traumatic life experience can trigger PTSD.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can result from a number of traumatic incidents such as violent attacks, mugging, rape, sexual assault, torture, terrorism, being held captive, child abuse, bullying, domestic abuse, serious accidents, a major fearful experience, and natural disasters.

Even though the events may have happened years ago, the trapped emotions still affect our lives now. Sufferers talk about how they face a constant battle trying to forget or block out the incidents, and have struggled to find an effective treatment long lasting.

How does hypnotherapy treatment help me be free of PTSD?

Hypnotherapy works with your unconscious mind to find and release the trauma and the emotions connected to it. Your mind and body are already wanting you to do this, sadly we get in the way because we’ve never been taught to allow the body to naturally let go and heal.

It's the emotional responses and false perceptions created and stored in the body at the time that are holding the trauma in the body.

When we clear, break and release the emotional links in the event, we see it from a different viewpoint, a viewpoint free of pain, guilt, suffering and any other emotions. As a result, you are able to put these memories and events in the past, and get on with your life.

To find out more about the stages and process of change, have a look at the 'The process' and the 'F.A.Q' pages.

How many sessions will I need?

Effectiveness of the therapy doesn't only depend on the number of sessions, but also on your commitment to practice some of the techniques between the sessions. There is no way to determine how many sessions a client is going to need as each person and the issue they come in for is unique.

The key factors to success are an open mind and a willingness to explore where your unconscious mind takes us.

What's the cost per session?

The cost per session is £60, with each session normally lasting between 90 minutes to 2 hours.

How can I pay for treatment?

Payment is per session and can be paid in cash, debit card, Visa or MasterCard at the end of each session.
