PTSD is a common issue for people in the military or ex-military. While counselling and CBT can be very helpful the process of hypnotherapy can be a much faster and a more efficient method. Hypnosis has been in use for far longer than any psychological science. Our bodies are very intelligent and they can repair themselves naturally. Being in the state of hypnosis is a most natural state to be in and change can happen very quickly. Post traumatic trauma means having so much tension inside the body that a person feels they cannot take it any longer. Your mind gives you what it thinks you want and your body is trying to protect you which therefore causes the tension. The more you don’t want to remember or feel those feelings the stronger they tend to become. It can start in childhood and can occur in all sorts of life. Military employees often suffer with it and frequently do not get the help they require.
You might wonder how a treatment aimed at the mind can affect the body. When we think frightening thoughts we can experience shortness of breath, dizziness, sweating, shaking and so on. The same is true when thinking pleasant thoughts – what follows is a relaxation of the muscles, deeper breathing, more calmness etc. These are automatic responses and can be used to promote well-being. PTSD can be resolved. You do not have to live with it, contact me to move forward to a better frame of mind.
