Trauma and PTSD Hypnotherapy in Sydney
Trauma and PTSD Hypnotherapy in Sydney will be an effective way to bring peace and joy back into your life. Stress, Trauma and PTSD is the response from the human unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is very protective in nature. When we are threatened or feel in danger, the part of our brain that is protective kicks in. This is our flight or fight response that protects us from danger. This is the most primitive part of our brain and developed before we developed the neo-cortex reasoning part of our human brain. With the use of our more developed parts of our higher mind, we are then able to overcome those primitive responses that can control our lives in a negative way. Fear is a response where we can feeling helpless. Our human higher mind is then meant to respond with problem solution where the use of both the Cerebellum and the Neo-cortex work in sync.
We may be stressed from a traumatic experience, or a place we visited, or a person who makes us feel uneasy. At the end of the day, it is us who choose to feel this way. These a choices we have made in our mind. Stress is a general word to describe emotions such as Anxiety and worry. These emotions are all intertwined.
Sometimes stress is a beneficial response because it prepares the mind and body to respond to a change in the environment. However, in extreme cases, stress can be experienced over a long period of time which can have a negative influence on our mind and body. It can cause extreme illness in our body and can lead to some mental illnesses.
Limiting belief systems
Hypnotherapy for Trauma and PTSD is an effective way to quickly change your response to stress. Moving the client to that initial stress response and working through reframing this belief is how we overcome the feeling state. Once we change the belief, we can then change how we choose to feel. The subconscious mind is our protector, so in therapy we can ask the subconscious to find new ways to comfort and protect you.
There are a number of treatments that are available for trauma. Hypnotherapy can be used with other therapies such as Psychology, Counselling and Psychiatry. But always consult your doctor and ask if Hypnotherapy is safe to experience with other treatments and medications. There are many self help relaxation techniques you can use but until you go to the cause of the problem, the feelings associated with the trauma may return. That is where Clinical Hypnotherapy can help.
Healing the Inner Child Therapy
Healing the Inner Child hypnotherapy is offered here in this Sydney clinic.A child can experience great trauma from childhood where deep Post Traumatic Stress has developed over many years of untreated trauma. Hypnotherapy, suggestion and regression therapy is used to create a landscape for self-healing. As we begin the process of Inner child healing, we tap into feeling states we may have experienced in our younger years by changing negative patterns and clearing emotional blockages. We can release deep anger, rage, guilt and painful wounds that exist deep in our unconscious mind.
There are many ways to do this and the therapy depends on the situation. We must touch the hand of the child with a sense of understanding using deep mindfulness and relaxation. Mindfulness is the process of being more aware of what the child is experiencing, offering the child a hand of understanding, the hand of your adult wisdom. Once the adult wisdom of understanding begins the process of kindness and compassion towards the child, the child will feel a sense of security so it can let go of the pain and anger held deep in the shadows of their mind. The unconscious defence mechanisms suppress these feelings in order to protect the welfare of the individual, in other words, the child aspect of the self will always go with what is familiar rather than do something outside of its comfort zone. Then the child’s growth hasn’t developed properly. Think of the child as a part of your whole, a little like a patch of grass that has not grown lush and green from lack of sun and nurture.
Once we move down into the unconscious mind with love and care, as a loving parent ego, we can then allow the unconscious to let go of the grip it holds for protection. Once this happens, the child ego and the adult person can then communicate with each other, allowing the process of resolution and integration as one being. Once this integration process is completed, we also integrate the wonder and beauty of the child back into the adult awareness. Think of it as a trading. The adult parent self is offering its wisdom as the child, eventually will offer is playfulness, wander and joy to the adult self.
As we begin the release of painful feelings and experiences in childhood, we can then re-learn to honour that child we once were in order to love the wise adult self in the present. Before this happens, we need to release the emotional energies of pain we carry and return that joy of childhood back into the present adult awareness.

Do you suffer from Mental Illness or Depression?
With duty of care for my clients, I need to ask before we proceed with a session. I am not able to facilitate Hypnotherapy if you have a mental illness such Schizophrenia or Bipolar. If you are on Depression medication, you will need to get a doctors referral first before the session. Often these symptoms will be treated with drugs prescribed by a doctor. Anti-depressants, sleep medication, and perhaps a diet or stop smoking program will be prescribed. It’s a good idea to see a doctor first before seeing a Hypnotherapist.
