Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs when a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event or have been in what has appeared to be a life threatening situation.  It can even occur when a person has witnessed the harm of another person or people as well.


Anyone can develop PTSD at anytime, some of the main causes  are as follows:

  • A serious car or other type of accident
  • Physical or sexual assault
  • On going sexual, emotional or physical abuse
  • Witness or experience any form of traumatic event
  • Experience a natural disaster such as bushfire or flood.

Some of the on going signs of PTSD are:

  • Reoccurring flashback and memories
  • Insomnia recurring  nightmares.
  • Increased alertness and watchfulness
  • Being easily startled
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Heart palpitations or intense feelings of panic when thinking about the event
  • Feeling afraid, that the world is unsafe
  • Feeling guilty or ashamed of that what happened
  • Avoiding situations that might remind you of the trauma


Why hypnotherapy with me helps PTSD:

All of these strong feelings, emotions and memories are stored in your subconscious mind.  By using hypnotherapy we are able to heal those issues held within the subconscious.  By releasing the pain from the past my clients are able to move on in their lives.

I understand the difficulties my clients experience from PTSD.  My aim is to help my clients feel stronger and take back control over their lives and their emotions.


One client that had suffered from years of childhood sexual abuse told me.

“I felt better after two sessions of hypnotherapy with you, than I did after 11 years of therapy with my psychologist.”
