Trauma & PTSD
Hypnotherapy for Trauma and PTSD in Leeds and Online
As human beings we all need to feel loved, valued and safe in order to thrive. Unfortunately some of us will have painful experiences in our lives that overwhelm our capacity to process them, and which can leave a deep and lasting subconscious impact on us – affecting our daily lives, our relationships and our self-esteem.
Trauma and PTSD affect everyone differently. Something that one person finds traumatic another won’t, and vice versa, as the level of trauma experienced depends on the subconscious interpretation and meaning of the event rather than the event itself. Trauma experienced in childhood, whether as a result of serious negative events or situations such as abuse or neglect, or experiences like being bullied or shamed tend to have a deep impact on a person as a child is still forming their own sense of how ‘ok’ they are and how safe the world is, and lacks the resources to understand how or why the traumatic event happened.
I frequently see clients at my clinic in Leeds and online who have experienced traumatic events such as physical or emotional abuse, birth trauma, shock news, experiencing an accident or life threatening situation or those who are suffering the effects of untreated or unresolved childhood trauma which is continuing to affect them in their adult life. Common symptoms can include intense anxiety, flashbacks, panic attacks, insomnia, nightmares and irrational anger or fear.
How Hypnotherapy can help with Trauma & PTSD
Cognitive Hypnotherapy can be a very effective treatment for trauma and PTSD as it allows the client to access and release the subconscious beliefs that underlie the trauma, and repattern the emotional imprint left by it. I then guide my clients to connect with who they were always meant to be and to understand that they are safe and free of the effects of the past.
It’s very important that my clients feel heard, safe and supported, particularly when dealing with sensitive and painful memories, and my approach allows me to be flexible in how I work so that we can use only those techniques that the client feels comfortable with, and I can ensure that they feel as secure as possible so that they can move on from the trauma in the way that works for them.
