Why you keep relieving your trauma - and how you can finally break free.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is often seen in people who undergo a traumatic or frightening experience.
You survived...but you can't get over what happened.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can happen after a difficult, stressful or traumatic incident; even though you survived the incident, and maybe even felt fine afterwards.
For some reason, you just can’t let it go of what happened.
You keep reliving it, and the fear you felt, again and again and again.
This is PTSD, and it happens to 1 in 3 people after a traumatic incident.
Living with PTSD is difficult.
PTSD has many different symptoms.
You might try and avoid everything that reminds you of what happened.
You might find yourself constantly on edge, always looking for danger.
You might find yourself extremely anxious, struggling with nightmares or having flashbacks.
You might even have physical symptoms like sweating, trembling and even pain.
Science doesn't know much but is learning more.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder isn’t properly understood yet.
PTSD has been identified in people who have fought in wars - but also people who have been in a “fender bender” car crash.
It’s been seen in emergency service workers - but also school children who have been bullied in school. It's even been seen after childbirth.
Science doesn’t know why some people develop PTSD and others don’t, although there are lots of theories about it.
There are some medical treatments for PTSD.
The main medical treatment for PTSD in the UK is anti-depressants. Other therapies are being trialled abroad, but these are not yet available in the UK.
These can help mask the symptoms but don't do anything about the cause of the PTSD. And for some, these tablets come with unwanted side effects.
Talking therapy like CBT is sometimes used, but this can mean needing to relive the events over and over.
Sometimes, EMDR - an eye movement therapy - will be used and this can be helpful without needing to relive the trauma again and again.
How hypnotherapy can help you defeat PTSD.
I believe that your reaction to what happened isn’t a disorder.
You felt in danger and your mind acted to protect you.
This isn’t wrong.
What’s wrong is that your mind hasn’t been able to move on from the danger and realise you’re safe now.
Using advanced hypnosis techniques, I can help your powerful mind realise that the danger has passed and you are safe to go back to living your life.
And I can do this without you needing to keeping talking about what happened to you.
