Post-traumatic stress disorder can be a very severe disruption to any patient’s life. Imagine yourself as a combat veteran who just left the service, but only after serving in high-stress combat situations like Iraq or Afghanistan.
You walk down the street and, suddenly, a tire bursts or a car engine backfires. Unfortunately, these two sounds are similar to the sounds of artillery and other explosives. All of a sudden, you find yourself in the middle of combat once again, with all the stress that comes with it… or so you thought you were.
This situation is a trigger, and there are many triggers for people with PTSD. Although triggers are different, the effects are the same – extreme anxiety, heightened awareness, and the increased stress that come with it, and irrational behavior that is, unfortunately, disruptive to the person and the people around them.
Hypnosis has a set of techniques that can help people in dealing with the triggers of PTSD. Through hypnotic therapy, patients are able to:
- Confront the repressed or suppressed memories that are triggering episodes in a controlled manner, directed by the soothing and compassionate voice of the therapist.
- Recognize the triggers and be able to prepare oneself to deal with episodes calmly.
- Go deeper into the subconscious and unearth other possible memories that can trigger PTSD.
Moreover, a hypnotherapist in Virginia can record sessions with the patient so he or she can listen to the coaching at home, which hastens the recovery..
