Hypnotherapy and Trauma
What are the benefits of Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy can provide the opportunity for a patient to explore different parts of the brain, and allow you to access a deeper level of concentration without the distractions of everyday life.
This access to the deeper, more subconscious parts of the brain can be used to facilitate healing through processing and integrating painful memories, becoming more aware of subconscious decisions and motives, and re-wiring parts of the brain that have been negatively affected by trauma.
Why Hypnotherapy for Trauma?
Trauma can happen to anyone, and can involve a range of experiences from personal abuse to experiencing a natural disaster or the loss of a loved one.
When a person experiences trauma, sometimes the brain can have difficulty processing the experience, which can lead to ongoing symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, depression; and in some cases, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Because hypnotherapy works by deeply relaxing and focusing the brain, it can be beneficial in the treatment of trauma.
The deep state of focused relaxation your hypnotherapist will guide you into can allow you to more readily make changes in your thought processes that will help you cope with symptoms of trauma.
Our members are held to strict practice standards that ensure you are accessing quality, professional hypnotherapy to embark on your trauma healing journey.

Some hypnotherapists do offer virtual appointments, and virtual hypnotherapy has been shown to be as effective as in-person appointments.

Can I Access Hypnotherapy for Childhood Trauma?
All children experience stress. Some of that stress is tolerable and even beneficial for brain development.
However, very intense or ongoing stress can be toxic and affect a child’s brain negatively. In these cases, trauma has occurred.
Childhood trauma is often stored in a more subconscious way by the brain, directing reactions and defenses in certain situations without any deliberate decision to respond in a certain way.
Because hypnotherapy helps access these deeper levels of thought, it can be extremely beneficial in the treatment of symptoms caused by childhood trauma.
Please Note: When dealing with matters of complex or ongoing trauma sustained in childhood, it is important to work with a professional hypnotherapist. Our members are required to maintain a high standard of ongoing education and professionalism so that you can be confident in your choice of therapist.
