Service Description

The symptoms experienced by someone who has gone through a traumatic event can be distressing day to day. Constant replaying, or avoiding the memory, hyper vigilance, anxiety and anger can all wear away at a person’s confidence and resilience after a while. And it is natural to wonder when will these heavy feelings will leave? The fight or flight response is one of our most primitive survival systems and is designed for to allow us to act in the face of life threatening danger. The highly aroused emotions of fear and helplessness present during the trauma become inextricably, biologically linked to the memory of the event. The rational, thinking part of our brain (pre frontal cortex) can be thought of as the policeman in this scenario. He tries to reassure the owner (the traumatised person) that nothing is wrong but he can’t be heard over the alarm. This is why sometimes well intentioned advice to ‘move on’ or ‘get over’ what happened is pointless because the connection has been made and so it is extremely difficult to rationalise or to wilfully stop the thoughts or feelings. The treatment involves 3 stages - Hearing your story (should you want to tell it, you do not have too) and understanding the changes you would like to experience with the symptoms lifted. - Hypnotherapy session to relieve symptoms & remove trauma, remembering the event in a specific way whilst feeling safe and secure. - Imagining coping in the future and responding differently, not feeling the weight of trauma Benefits: - This therapy is a brief intervention that seeks relief of PTSD symptoms after 2 or 3 sessions in person or by working at your own pace with the online course. Occasionally the process needs to be repeated but in the majority of cases people report a significant diminishing or complete eradication of symptoms and heavy feelings. - If talking about the traumatic birth experience makes you feel uncomfortable there is no need the share what happened to you. You will need to remember it yourself but you can do this without re-telling. - This treatment is equally effective 3 months after the event as it is 3 years or even longer after the event. *PLEASE NOTE THIS PRICE IS FOR YOUR FIRST SESSION ONLY, THIS IS A COURSE OF 3 SESSIONS IN TOTAL
