If you have PTSD hypnosis is the most effective way to change traumatic memories. The Richards Trauma Process which uses hypnosis been clinically proven to help help PTSD very safely and has been accepted by both the American Medical Association and the Australian Medical Association
The creator of this process, Judith Richards, was the victim of sustained emotional and physical trauma over a nine year period. Told that she would never fully heal and regain emotional health, she embarked on a journey to heal herself and in the process revolutionised the use of hypnosis in the treatment of severe trauma.
The Richards Trauma Process is a simple three-step process, which has resulted in the achievement of extraordinary improvements for PTSD suffers in only a few hours of treatment.
The symptoms of PTSD happen because your brain found an event or sequence of events overwhelming. At the time your brain kicked into full survival mode, releasing survival hormones. The situation so overwhelming that those memories were not filed away properly, so that you either feel in a state of continual danger or, or a sense of imminent danger is easily brought to mind.
All the experts in the field of trauma agree that to recover, two things must happen:
- “the body has somehow to know now, that the ‘danger is over’, “I am safe now”. That is the key to switching off the self-reinforcing neurology.
- The person “has to be brought to the point of being empowered around the trauma and be able to deal with it, to resolve it to disempower it“.
Experts disagree on how these two should be achieved and the time frame within which it is possible.
Most traditional therapies expect complex presentations of phobias, chronic pain, depression and trauma including PTSD, will inevitably take a long time to resolve or at least become manageable, which is often all that is aimed for as a viable treatment outcome. And that this will involve regression and reliving the event plus medication.
The Richards Trauma Process typically resolves the problem in 3-4 sessions. The patient works through the event in a very safe hypnotic dissociated state, which allows the person to move on with their life. The final and very important stage is to prepare the person to move on with their life so that future events and reminders of the past do not bring on any future anxiety.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) which is a body that analyses up to date health data to provide guidelines regarding quality care, recommends that
