The Trauma process explained
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 empowermentIf you have PTSD hypnosis is the most effective way to change traumatic memories.
The Trauma Process is a simple three-step process, which has resulted in the achievement of extraordinary improvements for PTSD sufferers in less than a month.
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:
1. “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.
2. 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.
In the 3-4 session Trauma Process, 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.
