A traumatic event is one in which you find yourself involved in, or bearing witness to a life-threatening situation. Sexual assault, childhood abuse, domestic violence, exposure to combat, car accident, natural disaster or the death of a loved one are all examples of traumatic events. People often use the word "traumatic" interchangeably with "stressful", though if you have lived through a traumatic event, you will know that trauma and stress are not the same thing.  During a traumatic event a person will;

a) experience or witness a situation that involves threat of actual death or serious injury and;

b) react to what they've experienced or witnessed with fear, helplessness and/or horror.

Unfortunately traumatic events are not rare and most of us will be exposed to some type of trauma at some point in our lives'. Despite this commonality, there can often be stigma and feelings of shame attached to having such experiences. In some cases this leads to the use of harmful and counter-productive "coping mechanisms", creating a "cycle" of traumatic events.

It is common amongst people who have experienced severe or multiple traumas to develop PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Someone who is suffering from PTSD, may experience "flash-backs", in which they frequently re-experience the event; avoidance, where they feel unable to acknowledge what has happened; and also feelings of anxiety and the inability to cope with everyday matters. Thankfully for those suffering these symptoms, the condition is highly treatable.

In "Psychotherapy" magazine (Volume 7, Number 1), various methods of treatment for PTSD, were reviewed in a study of relevant literature by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD.  The study revealed the following information;

  • Hypnosis had a 93% recovery rate after 6 sessions (approx 1 1/2 months @ 1 session per week)
  • Behaviour Therapy was 72% effective after 22 sessions ( approx 6 months @ 1 session per week) and;
  • Psychotherapy showed a 38% recovery rate after 600 sessions (approx 1 1/2 years @ 1 session per week).

During and after World War 1, the incidence of PTSD (or 'shell shock' as it was then called,) was studied intensively. The most effective solution, in these cases, was found to be Hypnotherapy, with many of the soldiers receiving this treatment becoming well. Hypnotherapy can help trauma sufferers become better equipped to deal with the trauma they have been through and therefore better equipped to deal with the ups and downs of day to day life.

At Strategies for Life, by using hypnotherapy and NLP we work with the unconscious mind to assist you to eliminate the negative thought patterns that were built during the traumatic event, in a safe and positive environment.  The full traumatic experience details are not required to be discussed.  Using a safe and tested process, people can let go of the emotions associated with the trauma, immediately feeling more empowered. If you think you or someone you know, may require assistance  coping with trauma, or you would like more information on how hypnotherapy can help, please contact Karen at Strategies for Life.
