Reading Hypnotherapy for Trauma & PTSD
How does trauma affect you?
You may experience flashbacks, or unwanted physical sensations, negative feelings or perhaps a numbness – an absence of feeling when you most want to feel. A sense of detachment.
Trauma can have the tendency to make us develop inaccurate, negative beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. We then view ourselves and the world through the distorted lens of these beliefs and things start to look and feel pretty scary. And beliefs are just that – we believe them. They may not be true but we are absolutely convinced.
Sometimes we’re well aware of these beliefs, even if we can’t understand why we have them. Other times they’re just below the surface of our awareness, but nevertheless driving how we feel and behave towards ourselves and others. This can leave us just plain confused – “Why did I react like that”?
