Trauma and Abuse

Trauma is a universal human experience. All trauma is relative, some are obvious like experiencing physical abuse, and others can be indirect in the form of neglect or emotional abuse. Unless our trauma is addressed, it remains suppressed in our minds and bodies, and people can be coping with trauma their entire lives without even realizing it.

A traumatic event may involve anything from interpersonal abuse, to a natural disaster, to the sudden death of a loved one. When people struggle to process traumatic events or experiences, it can lead to certain mental health conditions or symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, flashbacks, physical ailments, and more. Other impacts could look like spending one’s entire life avoiding their trauma, by running away from facing their finances, their health, and their relationships.

For many people, trauma can remain repressed where they may not even know or remember it occurred. While in other cases, people may have an impression of it but find it too uncomfortable to face or admit. Many people who have emotional difficulties in adulthood, (including addiction) wonder whether the cause was a trauma in their childhood that they have forgotten or repressed. They may have memories that are incomplete but feel uncomfortable, particularly when recalled with an adult perspective.

Trauma and abuse is a highly sensitive issue that most people spend their entire lives protecting, and it would take a very safe space, and a trusting therapist to even begin to address and process these events, though the results of it are life-changing. Hypnotherapy has had some great results in helping people move through their traumatic events. During the sessions they are facing themselves in a safe space, processing their stuck emotions, and pulling themselves out of the situation ,so that they can finally put it behind them and move forward.

Many studies have shown hypnotherapy to be helpful in the treatment of trauma symptoms, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), in some instances. The sessions help prevent or reduce dissociation following exposure to a traumatic event, reduce symptoms of the trauma, and help people to be more in charge of their lives without the damaging impact of their traumatic past.

How The Process Works:

The First Session:
Our first role is to clearly identify your objective and gain some background on the issue. All behavior is governed by beliefs, and we work with the beliefs you have accumulated in the subconscious mind that are holding you back. During the  session you will learn how the mind works, and discover beliefs that you have that are supporting you and sabotaging you towards achieving your goal. We will end with a tailor-made guided meditation that you can take home and listen to for the next few weeks.

Subsequent Sessions:
Each session comprises of several healing techniques, hypnotherapy, visualisations and exercises to release the disempowering beliefs and experiences from your subconscious mind. We believe that this journey is a partnership between you and the therapist, and will be giving you simple exercises to do for homework so you can maintain the shifts at home and create lasting change together.

Each session takes between 60-90 minutes, with the exception of the first session that includes a case history and is approximately 90 minutes.
