Healing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
How NLP and Hypnotherapy can Heal Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
For many years, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was associated with soldiers and those who had experienced dangerous situations in the military. We now know, however, that PTSD can affect anyone who has experienced a physical or emotional situation where there was extreme danger or threat of harm. Examples often include accidents, assaults, natural disasters, personal tragedy, and the like.
Symptoms And Patterns Of PTSD
There are some very well-defined thought patterns as well as physical and emotional symptoms associated with PTSD. A few examples of these include:
- Frequent or persistent thoughts about the traumatic experience
- Reliving memories of the traumatic experience repeatedly
- Feeling and acting emotionally numb
- Frequently and easily startled
- Feeling and acting detached from the rest of the world
- Sleep problems, including difficulty sleeping or excess sleeping
These symptoms generally result from a pattern of thinking about whatever trauma occurred. For instance, you might constantly think about the ordeal, following the same thought patterns in the same way over and over again. The effects of this pattern, both physical and emotional, then occur in the same way over and over again. What’s more, the way that you think about the trauma is so ingrained that you inevitably think about it over and over and thus perpetuate the cycle of PTSD.
Using NLP And Hypnotherapy To Heal
The benefits of using NLP and hypnotherapy to heal PTSD are many. It all starts with learning a new way to think, creating a new pattern of thoughts and behaviours that remove the negative and stressful effects you have previously experienced. Your old pattern is broken and in its place you learn a new pattern that is positive and constructive.
One of the reasons NLP and hypnotherapy are so effective and achieve such rapid results is that they do not dwell on the past and relive the triggering event over and over again. This simply perpetuates the destructive pattern of thought. Instead, you learn how to train your mind to think in new ways that take direct aim at the ways PTSD emerges in your life, thus making rapid and effective changes.
Hypnosis works in combination with NLP, targeting your unconscious mind and teaching it how to make the very deep, inner shifts in thinking that support the conscious actions of your mind. The two techniques work with each other rather than against each other, helping to create real and lasting change.
How Long Will Treatment Take?
The length of treatment will vary depending on your individual circumstances. Whether you have only recently developed PTSD or have been living with it for many years, your practitioner will work closely with you to create at least some level of immediate relief as quickly as possible. On average, our clients achieve complete recovery from PTSD in as few as three to four one-hour sessions.
