What is trauma?
When you experience a particularly stressful, distressing, or frightening event, it can be traumatic. Trauma is essentially your emotional response to that event. In the short term, you may experience feelings of shock and denial. Over time, you may develop other reactions or symptoms due to trauma.
Trauma can be emotional or psychological. It can be caused by situations or events. The impact of some events may feel more or less traumatic depending on your own life experiences and past traumas. It isn’t a sign of weakness if you feel more impacted by events than someone else does. For many people, trauma is a common, normal reaction. We don’t all process events in the same way, and past life experiences may lead you to develop more or less helpful coping mechanisms that can help or hinder you.
It can affect anyone, at any age or from any background, and without help, it can cause long-lasting harm to your mental and physical health. You may notice the impact of traumatic events immediately, or it could take days, weeks, months, or even years for symptoms to surface. It’s never too early or too late to seek help and support.
There are three main types of trauma; Acute, caused by a single incident; Chronic, the result of repeated, prolonged trauma such as abuse; Complex, when you are exposed to multiple different traumatic events.
Keeping an open mind and exploring different therapy options can be a helpful part of the healing process. Hypnotherapy is a gentle and effective tool to help heal trauma, especially when combined with time-line therapy.
I work with you to help you to explore past traumas and underlying issues that may have exacerbated your reaction to or experience with trauma. Helping you to remove the negative emotions (anger, shame, guilt, jealousy, fear, hurt, sadness, etc.) attached to the events, which in turn helps you to let go of the past and move forward in a confident and positive way.
By entering a trance-like state using hypnosis, I will help you to feel relaxed while safely accessing your memories to help you better understand your emotions surrounding your trauma. Together, you can identify triggers, and change how you react to them and how you feel about traumatic events.
I have found whilst working with my clients, many of them find it easier to be CONTENT FREE, meaning they do not have to tell me what is happening in a specific memory; I am able to guide them into removing negative emotions attached to that event, which allows them to let go of that memory and free themselves of those past events.
