Trauma & PTSD

Hypnotherapy offers a powerful tool for healing from trauma and PTSD, addressing the incident, the perpetrator, and the debilitating symptoms like intrusive thoughts and flashbacks through specialized techniques.

How we apply hypnotherapy:

  • Direct Subconscious Access: Rapidly identifies and addresses the root causes of trauma, enabling reframing of traumatic memories.

  • Safe Trauma Processing: Utilizes non-invasive hypnosis and visualization to process emotions safely without reliving trauma.

  • Holographic Memory Resolution: Emphasizes emotional and physical safety, detoxifying traumatic memories via visualization and body-centered techniques.

  • Energy Psychology: Integrates hypnosis with energy healing to specifically address emotional traumas, focusing on altering emotional responses and rewiring the brain for healthier emotional management.

  • Neuroscience: Modern techniques aim to rewire the brain and create new, healthier neural pathways, aiding in the recovery from trauma through neurological change.

  • Content-Free Approach: Facilitates change by reshaping traumatic narratives without requiring detailed discussion of the event, thereby protecting the client from potentially retraumatizing content.

  • Perception Transformation: Alters perceptions and reactions to traumatic events, transforming personal interactions with past traumas.

Evidence of Effectiveness

Recent studies highlight the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in treating PTSD:

  • A meta-analysis found significant efficacy of hypnotherapy in alleviating PTSD symptoms, with large effect sizes observed both immediately post-treatment and at follow-up intervals, including 4-week and 12-month assessments

(Rotaru & Rusu, 2016)

  • Another study echoed these findings, indicating robust improvements in PTSD symptoms following hypnotherapy, with positive impacts on avoidance and intrusion symptoms as well

(O’Toole et al., 2016)

  • Eitan G. Abramowitz explored Ego State Hypno-Analysis for chronic combat PTSD, reporting accelerated treatment outcomes and improved patient conditions through hypnotherapy, demonstrating its suitability for trauma victims

(Abramowitz, 2019)

  • Hypnosis can effectively tackle the complex layers of trauma and dissociation in patients with complex PTSD, offering a targeted and transformative treatment approach.
