Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can affect every aspect of your life. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are effective modalities to improve the quality of your life and let go of the causes of post traumatic stress. At Meridian Peak Hypnosis in Naperville, we work with clients of all backgrounds and a unique experience working with those who have served in the military.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can affect every part of your life

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of anxiety disorder. PTSD can occur after you have gone through an extreme emotional trauma that involved the threat of injury or death.

There are four types of PTSD symptoms:

1.  Reliving the event — affecting your day-to-day activities, repeated upsetting memories and nightmares
2.  Avoidance — feeling detached, emotional numbing, feeling like you do not care about anything
3.  Hyperarousal — always scanning your surroundings for signs of danger, being startled easily, feeling irritable
4.  Negative thoughts, moods and feelings — constant guilt including survivor guilt, not being able to recall important parts of the event, loss of interest in activities or other people

Additional symptoms of PTSD include: agitation, excitability, dizziness, fainting, feeling your heart beat in your chest and headaches.

Hypnosis changes your approach to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Hypnosis works directly with your subconscious mind which is where the PTSD resides in your mind.  Many people think they can “talk” themselves out of the problem through traditional counseling.  As many with PTSD have found: all that talking goes out the window when your body feels danger and goes right back to those past feelings.

Therapeutic hypnosis deals with PTSD on a subconscious level — the place where the bad memories truly reside. Hypnosis changes the words that are etched in the mind so they return to safe, peaceful, calm emotions.  Hypnosis gets you back to where you were before the PTSD event happened without addictive medications that usually involve significant side effects or “trade-offs” for feeling better.

You Can Feel Better – Hypnosis Helps Improve PTSD symptoms

See yourself in a whole new light, allow others to see the glow within you, feel more relaxed around others and feel great from the inside out — its all possible using hypnosis.  Meridian Peak Hypnotherapists craft a custom hypnosis plan that get you feeling better.  99% of our clients report a significant change in how they feel after the first visit.

Many of our clients have gone to traditional counseling, doctors, therapists and psychologists and have been unable to find a way to release the causes of their PTSD.  After a single hypnosis session many report noticing a considerable change in their reaction to the world around them.  With additional follow-ups, they find peace and calm in their mind again.

Hypnosis is proven more effective than traditional counseling

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
