Visualize being healed from past traumas; and being able to fully emotionally engage with the important people in your life, feeling like yourself again.
If you suffer from PTSD you may have many feelings or behaviors that you don’t understand, leaving you to wonder –
“How can I overcome the nightmares and flashbacks?”
“How can I simply feel like myself again?”
“When will I get past feeling numb and being angry and agitated?”
The Iraq War, the War in Afghanistan, the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers on 9/11, and natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy have caused thousands of people to suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). While the situations that cause PTSD eventually resolve, for some, the psychologically anguish goes on and on. Even personal traumas, like abuse or the sudden death of a loved one can cause PTSD.
PTSD can leave you feeling helpless, depressed, and alone, and trying to deal with the symptoms without getting help generally does not work. Hypnosis for PTSD can reprogram your brain so you can let go of the negative emotions and behaviors, and stop the flashbacks, the nightmares, and the agitation.

How Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis for PTSD works directly in the subconscious where the traumatic experience is stored, to eliminate the negative thoughts and feelings stemming from the trauma. Hypnosis allows you explore the traumatic event and the negative thoughts and behaviors connected to it, from a different perspective. This is especially beneficial if you are not sure what is causing the PTSD or only consciously remember bits and pieces of the event.
We use several different techniques to retrain how your subconscious uses the past trauma to influence your emotions, behaviors, and thoughts today. We can teach your mind that the past events have no place in your life today, because no matter how horrible they were, those events and situations are over. We can eliminate the negative thoughts and behaviors, and replace them with positive affirmations, so that when you feel stressed and agitated, your mind will want you to do something positive and healthy like taking a hot bath, or going for a long walk.
