Hypnosis for ptsd

I have been helping people overcome, with great success, PTSD since I qualified in Hypnosis in 2004. I help people and teams perform better (not just in golf) and releasing the impact of PTSD will very much help you perform better in life, business and sport.” Steve Woods – Hypnotist

According to the NHS, “Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events.”

Despite popular belief you don’t have to be in a front line service to be exposed to events that cause PTSD. A sudden traumatic event, or more likely longer term repetitive events can and will also result in a diagnosis for PTSD.

When we are emotional, positive or negative, we leave a pathway open to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind is normally only allowed to receive filtered information via our conscious mind, to be protected. As a result it accepts information that gets to it and under these emotional conditions memories and emotions will find their way deep into the mind.

Our mind then spends time trying to make sense of those experiences and often replays them, often makes them worse, and we feel that we are back in the emotional situation every day and experience the feelings including the physical responses. As a result we set the feelings and impacts deeper into our mind.

This can then impact sleep, thought processes, concentration, moods….. the list goes on.


How can Hypnosis Help? (Can Hypnosis Help?)

Hypnosis works by gaining that same pathway to the subconscious, inner mind. We already know this is the part of your mind that is holding all the emotions, anxiety and fear responses for PTSD. Hypnosis works by first of all accepting those feelings are there and realising that something put them there so we can start to work on putting something better there.

There are a number of techniques involved to release the blocks and and to give yourself permission to move forward. No two clients are the same and its not a scripted process at all. Its very unique to you.

Your mind is fully protected as we work and my own method is very much around future focus rather than visiting the past events (you are likely to be doing that yourself anyway).

Web based sessions are available worldwide to help you now.
