As a traumatic stress therapist, I specialise in helping people overcome the emotional and psychological wounds caused by traumatic events. Trauma can come from an event or situation in which you felt extremely overwhelmed or in fear. This could include a bereavement, a crisis, a violent accident, or abuse. Sometimes it isn’t about a single event but a serious or experiences over times, such as an abusive relationship or a childhood in which you didn’t feel safe or felt alone a great deal. This can leave you feeling down, sometimes depressed. Often people experience flashbacks or feelings of guilt or shame as well.

Through a combination of evidence-based therapies and compassionate support, I hope that you will begin a journey of healing. Often we do need to talk about the root causes of your trauma. Sessions are a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to process your experiences and emotions. Hypnotherapy has an advantage that we don’t always need to talk in depth and instead use visualisation work. I often use aspects of EMDR. This is a wonderful tool, which also requires less talking and more about visualisations and changing how you process memories on a subconscious level. I’m always happy to explain more about all these techniques.


Signs that you may need a traumatic stress therapist


Have experienced a traumatic event? Are you now struggling with the following symptoms? If so, it may be beneficial to seek support from a post traumatic stress therapist:

  1. Intrusive thoughts or memories: If you find yourself constantly reliving the traumatic event through intrusive thoughts or memories that disrupt your daily life, it may be a sign that you could benefit from therapy.
  2. Avoidance: Avoiding reminders of the traumatic event, such as people, places, or activities that trigger distressing memories.
  3. Hyperarousal: Feeling constantly on edge, experiencing exaggerated startle responses, or having difficulty sleeping and concentrating are common signs of hyperarousal associated with traumatic stress.
  4. Emotional numbness: Feeling emotionally detached or experiencing a persistent sense of numbness can be a sign that trauma is impacting your emotional well-being.
  5. Negative changes in beliefs and mood: Trauma can lead to negative changes in beliefs about oneself, others, and the world. If you find yourself struggling with a negative outlook, low self-esteem, or a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed, therapy may be beneficial.

Benefits of hypnotherapy for traumatic stress


As a post traumatic stress therapist, I use Hypnotherapy on a daily basis. To stress and trauma and also for a whole host of other challenges. Hypnotherapy for traumatic stress offers a range of benefits. These can significantly contribute to your healing journey. Here are some of the key advantages:

  1. Access to the subconscious mind: Hypnotherapy allows you to tap into the power of your subconscious mind. This is where trauma is stored. By accessing these deeply ingrained memories and emotions, you can gain a better understanding of the root causes of your distress. We can then work towards resolving them.
  2. Emotional release: Through hypnotherapy, you can safely and effectively release pent-up emotions related to your trauma. This emotional release can bring a sense of relief and catharsis. In term helping you to let go of the pain and move forward with your life.
  3. Reframe and reprogramme negative beliefs: Traumatic events often lead to the development of negative beliefs about oneself and the world. We can feel guilt and same and these corrosive feelings cause further emotional pain. Hypnotherapy can help you identify and challenge these beliefs. Then replace them with more positive and empowering thoughts. This process allows for a shift in perspective and can greatly enhance your overall well-being.
  4. Reduced anxiety and stress: As a post traumatic stress therapist, I teach relaxation techniques to promote deep calm and relaxation. Relaxation can significantly reduce anxiety and stress levels. By inducing a state of calm and tranquility, hypnotherapy helps to regulate the nervous system. This promotes a sense of inner peace.
  5. Improved coping mechanisms: As a post traumatic stress therapist, I look at effective coping mechanisms. You can utilise these both during and outside of therapy sessions. These techniques, combined with the insights gained from hypnotherapy, can help you navigate future challenges with resilience and strength.


How are hypnotherapy for trauma sessions structured?


Before sessions we can, if you wish, talk by phone, so you can ask any questions you have. I then ask you to fill in a background questionnaire. Sessions themselves do not have a fixed structure. Some will involve talking about your past, some will involve hypnotherapy. Some may include other tools such as EMDR or CBT.

Hypnotherapy for trauma will always begin as with all hypnotherapy, with me guiding you into a deep state of relaxation. This state, known as hypnosis, is all about helping you access your subconscious mind. This is where traumatic memories and emotions are stored. By accessing these memories, as a post traumatic stress therapist, I can help you process and release the associated pain and distress.

During a hypnotherapy we will then work to identify the specific traumatic events and associated emotions that are causing distress. Through gentle exploration and targeted suggestions, we might then reframe and reinterpret these experiences. This allows for healing and resolution.

The duration and frequency of hypnotherapy sessions can vary depending on your individual needs and the severity of your trauma. Typically, sessions last for 50 minutes and are conducted on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. We will talk about how many sessions you may require.
