Fishers Landing Hypnotherapy - PTSD and Phobia

Do I have PTSD?

By Mayo Clinic staff

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of anxiety disorder that's triggered by a traumatic event. You can develop post-traumatic stress disorder when you experience or witness an event that causes intense fear, helplessness or horror.

The “face” of PTS has no definition.  Again, any experience one has that results in the inability to feel peace is a very valid need for skill building and therapeutic relief.

 Post Traumatic Stress

Post traumatic stress may occur in people of any ages, at any time.  Some experienced trauma may be tremendous, for example, witnessing a death, rape, fire, combat.  Some experienced trauma may seem less traumatic by view of others, which may cause us to irrationally believe that our experienced trauma is not justifiable, thus our stress is not justifiable. 

Any trauma that causes us stress or anxiety is completely valid.  Without the necessary skills to interpret, understand and resolve those reactions to trauma, one may become emotionally disabled, behave in harmful ways to oneself or to others, or experience physical reactions to the unresolved traumatic experience. The stress or anxiety is caused by our mind's need for resolution. Usually our conscious mind is the messenger, and sometimes that messenger gets the message of "danger" confused with a message of remembering. 

In hypnotherapy, you will be guided safely by your own mind to understand the origin of your trauma, without having to re-live the experience.  Then through the realization of your previously experienced discomfort, you will receive the needed skills to keep conscious perspective. 

 Phobia/Phobic Response

Phobia is often very much like PTS except we may not have any idea of the origin of discomfort.  This, of course, can be very disturbing, and again result in so many emotional and physical reactions.

Hypnotherapy has been found as one of the most effective treatments to phobic responses and phobic resolution.

Treatment methods for phobia and PTS are most often very similar.  Both treatment methods are safely guided with much skill and discretion, and do not require one to re-experience any trauma.
