Common traumas are those experienced at scenes of accidents – affecting casualties, witnesses and emergency services.
We can all relate to a traumatic event of some sort, although for some people it is not an event that touches them directly. For others it can be debilitating and cause long term illness or negative reactions and emotions.
Can hypnosis help post traumatic stress disorder and other forms of trauma?
When someone experiences or witnesses a life-threatening event such as being involved in military combat, terrorist incidents, natural disasters, violent personal assaults, or serious accidents at times they may develop a severe stress reaction called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Unresolved trauma stresses may make flourishing long-term relationships with spouses, family, friends, and life-partners become virtually impossible.
Symptoms of such an acute stress disorder are numerous, often quite serious and may involve:
- Reliving the event fairly often
- Disturbing memories of the event
- Highly distressing dreams about it
- Having flashbacks, hallucinations or illusions concerning the event
- Intense fear associated to anything that resembles the event
- Avoidance of similar situations
- Difficulties with sleep
- Angry outbursts and intense irritability
- Lack of concentration
- Hyper vigilance
- An extreme startle response sometimes involving excess sweating, heightened heart rate or associated rapid breathing
How does it work
Because hypnosis lets the patient be in a deep state of relaxation, this in turn may well help a PTSD patient to:
- Experience feelings that they are in a less anxious environment, and thus can feel safer
- Experience a lessening of negative intrusive thoughts
- Resume an involvement in daily activities with less fear
The goal of hypnotherapy trauma treatment
The goal of any hypnotherapy session is to let the patient rethink and re-frame any past negative patterns involving feelings and negative thinking so the patient is enabled to make new, healthier choices aided with more confidence. The very process of hypnotherapy is truly an endeavor between the therapist and the patient to create an unwavering foundation, and then set in motion processes to investigate deeper core issues. This is why hypnotherapy has been extremely effective in aiding trauma survivors to succeed to resolve their trauma.
At times as an adjunct to hypnotherapy, this type of disorder may call for a combination of both hypnotherapy as well as behavioral therapy, which may involve deliberate imagery of the event combined with techniques for relaxation. Or hypnotherapy may be combined with psycho-dynamic therapy, which is a type of supportive therapy that gives the patient various coping mechanisms and better insight into their reactions to the event itself. Hypnosis allows the patient to achieve control over the symptoms they are experiencing. Gaining this control and learning that you actually can have an affect over all of these symptoms is healing and very empowering within itself.
There are many associated benefits as well
Once a PTSD patient has gone through hypnosis they may also have other associated benefits such as:
- Tremendously improved sleep
- Stress elimination
- Removal of anxiety
- Improved confidence
- Improved general relaxation
- Loss of hyper vigilance
- Able to have positive visualization
