PTSD

Crisis And Trauma Clinical Hypnotherapy (CATCH) is specifically adapted to treat people suffering from the most difficult PTSD symptoms.

All sessions follow the CATCH PTSD protocol which has proved extremely effective at eliminating PTSD symptoms withina short period of time.

While we recognise everyone suffers from PTSD in a different way, the core causes of PTSD are generally from a similar root which can be effectively addressed using hypnotherapy, even if symptoms have been chronic for years.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a deep state of relaxation to counter the numerous physical + psychological symptoms which come under the banner of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 

Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, extreme anger, pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome are just a few of the symptoms which can indicate unresolved trauma in your body. This list is not exhaustive. Stress is a malign and dangerous force which can cause numerous health problems in any sufferer. 

When no solution can be found, sufferers can often feel they have no option except to self-medicate with alcohol and narcotics. This desire to numb is normal in PTSD sufferers. It is the body crying out for anything which will bring it relief. 

The body is a self-healing organism, but only when it is put into such a deep state of relaxation that all stressors and triggers can be subconsciously identified and defused. 

The CATCH PTSD Protocol is a confidential procedure, meaning you do not need to share anything you receive during sessions with me. I am simply the guide to help you get the most out of each session.

If you would like to learn more about CATCH feel free to contact me, or click here for free resources and case histories of military personnel who used this therapy to cure the very worst cases of PTSD and C-PTSD in a matter of weeks. 

PTSD in First Responders

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop in individuals who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events. First responders, including police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and emergency medical personnel, are particularly susceptible to developing PTSD due to the nature of their work.

 

Here are some signs and symptoms of PTSD in first responders;

  • Intrusive Memories: First responders with PTSD may experience recurring, distressing memories of the traumatic event. These memories can take the form of flashbacks, nightmares, or intrusive thoughts that can disrupt daily life.

  • Avoidance: Individuals with PTSD often go to great lengths to avoid reminders of the traumatic event. This might involve avoiding certain places, people, or activities that trigger memories of the trauma.

  • Negative Changes in Thinking and Mood: PTSD can lead to negative changes in a person's thought patterns and mood. First responders may become more pessimistic, have difficulty experiencing positive emotions, and struggle with feelings of guilt or shame.

  • Hyperarousal: First responders with PTSD may be easily startled, have difficulty sleeping, and experience heightened anxiety. This state of hyperarousal can make it challenging for them to relax and can impact their overall well-being.

  • Irritability and Aggression: PTSD can manifest in increased irritability, anger, and difficulty controlling one's temper. This can strain relationships both at work and at home.

  • Difficulty Concentrating: Individuals with PTSD may find it hard to concentrate and may experience memory problems. This can affect their ability to perform their duties effectively.

  • Hypervigilance: First responders with PTSD may be constantly on high alert, scanning their environment for potential threats. This hypervigilance can be exhausting and may contribute to anxiety and stress.

  • Feeling Detached or Estranged: Some individuals with PTSD may feel emotionally numb or detached from others. They may struggle to connect with loved ones and colleagues, leading to feelings of isolation.

  • Physical Symptoms: PTSD can also manifest in physical symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, and muscle tension. Chronic stress can take a toll on the body, contributing to overall physical health problems.

  • Substance Abuse: Some individuals with PTSD may turn to alcohol or drugs as a way to cope with their symptoms. Substance abuse can exacerbate the mental health challenges associated with PTSD.

It's important to note that not everyone who experiences trauma will develop PTSD, and individuals may exhibit different combinations of symptoms.
