Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) are normal reactions to abnormal situations. They usually stem from a sense of inescapability from a single (PTSD) or continuous (CPTSD) threat to self. These can include, but not limited to, war, violent attacks, abuse, sudden death of a loved one and other life threatening events.
Symptoms can manifest immediately or lay dormant until a triggering event, with some resemblance to the original, is encountered. The nervous system can flare up with feelings and images of the original event and become debilitating to living a normal life.
Sufferers of PTSD can have chronically high levels of the stress hormone ‘cortisol’. Cortisol is important for your health, but too much of it can wreak havoc on your body and cause a number of unwanted symptoms.
Hypnotherapy can safely and quickly restore the traumatized nervous system to balance in order for you to trust your responses to daily situations and start living your life again, free from the past and looking at the future in a new, positive and healthy way.
