Trauma and PTSD
There are two kinds of trauma, impactful and repetitive. Impactful would be the kind of a one-time highly distressing and often physical event that sends the body and mind into shock instantly like in the case of a car crash, or a violent attack. Repetitive trauma is apparently less distressful and can be non-physical but the repetition of event is as impactful, creating the same after-effects including post-traumatic stress disorder.
The effects can include in both cases flash-back, nightmares, obsessive compulsive disorders, extreme levels of anxiety, low self-esteem, emotional shut-down with possible consequent intimacy issues, sleep issues, depression, nervous tics, irritability and maniac disorders (having the feeling of being followed, tendency to expect something bad to happen)
Because trauma stems from the perception of being unable to cope with the distressful situation, children are more easily traumatised than adults however trauma can happen any time as it depends on the subjective perception. It has been shown in animals that the body and mind naturally know how to process trauma in order to overcome it, however because of the advanced development of the human brain usually the processing of trauma is interfered with by our most advanced part of mind.
In hypnotherapy we work with the part of the mind that is capable of processing and dealing with the trauma so good a healthy mental balance is restored once again and all symptoms caused by the trauma will disappear.
Remember: “Nothing is Impossible, the word itself says I’M POSSIBLE!”
