PTSD

PTSD

Shock and intense emotional trauma creates an imprint on the psyche. This imprint can be triggered by anything that resembles the original trauma leaving the person suffering with PTSD right back into the trauma with the same full blown emotional response as if it was happening for the first time.

Hypnosis is a process of relaxation and works by helping the person to be able to bear witness in their mind to the original event while remaining emotionally unattached as if watching a movie of themselves.  The emotions reside in the subconscious mind thus allowing the process of gently sorting out what is real from what was.
