Growth Hypnosis offers hypnotherapy to overcome PTSD and traumatic experiences

Some experiences are so intense they leave a near permanent scar on our minds. If an experience is judged by the mind to be life threatening it can trigger a trance like state where the experience is encoded by the amygdala and stored with our other survival templates. Then life can become a living hell as your brain is continuously on edge, as the amygdala scans for anything vaguely resembling the original traumatising event, forcing you to unnecessarily re-live the experience again and again when any near match is found. Even though you may rationally understand that you are no longer in danger, you find yourself powerless to resist the automatic emotional response that has been hard coded into your neural pathways.

Growth Hypnosis uses EMDR, regression and other dissociation techniques to re-record traumatic experiences at a lower arousal level

There are many traditional treatments for trauma however not all are effective and some may even be counter productive, for example counselling, which some doctors argue actually serves to refresh the trauma. Hypnotherapy can utilise a wide range of techniques including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing), regression and cognitive techniques to access the original memories and re-code them. By recalling the experience in a disassociated trance state we seek to re-record the memory at a lower arousal state which can then be released from the amygdala into the hippocampus where most normal memories are stored, and so dissolving the traumatic reaction pattern.
