Developing PTSD is never your fault. When someone is overwhelmed by stress or trauma the part of your brain which files your memories, became overwhelmed so that memory is NEVER stored – it is always current.
To recover: 2 things must happen:
- Your body has to somehow know that ‘it’s over’.
- Your unconscious mind must feel empowered so that events do not overwhelm you
This process achieves ‘release’ from the flight, fright, freeze response so that clients return to Calm. They also regain their own feelings of self value along with personal power and control. Sometimes for the first time in their lives, when dealing with childhood trauma.
The graph below shows how a trauma survivor remains in fear, flight, freeze mode and merely bounces up and down day to day while most people remain calm and return to calm rapidly after a stressful event.Changing the underlying core beliefs / programs in the first step of the process allows the changes created to stay firmly in place and not be re-written by the all-powerful subconscious mind.
Simply call me on 08 8365 9513 to book a time for a 30 minute complimentary strategy session for me to get a better idea of what you want and also so we can find whether we can work together. Then you can feel confident to get started and discover freedom and a wonderful new life.
You are NOT locked in to your past.
Look at the tree in the picture – when it was blown over and left with most of its roots in the air, it returned to growing in the direction that it wanted to grow.
This process is totally different to the typical counselling and psychology approach and you will not go over all the details of your trauma again, like ripping the scab off a partially healed wound.
You will be empowered and safe in only 3 sessions.
You will be like that tree blown over with most of its roots in the air, but determinedly moving forward – grow and live your life in the direction you want and truly leave the past behind. Your past becomes simply a boring story.
You are very welcome to call me to discuss your needs or to just book in and start getting help now.
I am a trained Trauma Practitioner and as well as being an expert in this area, I deeply understand the problem having suffered from PTSD in the past myself.
The two major leaders in Trauma Psychology are
- Dr Bessel van der Kolk
Internationally recognised leader in the field of psychological trauma –
You need to help their body feel that it’s over.’
‘One of THE Keys! – to healing trauma: is to regain power and control.’
- Dr Peter Levine, (lifetime achievement award from US Association of body psychotherapy) –
“Trauma lives in the body, not the event.”
The fight, flight, freeze response must be released from the body / the autonomic system, just as animals in the wild achieve this – through trembling, convulsion, and release of deep breaths.
Stress is stored in the body so to return to calm a trauma survivor’s body must know it is over and regain a normal sense of personal empowerment
