Trauma

Release from trauma

with New Life Prospects

Psychological Trauma and its effects on the mind and body can be one of the most debilitating, frightening and paralysing experiences. Often this leads to a prolonged period of suffering, often with memories or flashbacks that can carry on indefinitely. It is important to acknowledge that there is a great range of what would be considered traumatic events or memories. These can range from a minor car accident to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The trauma is not so much the event or events that caused it as it is our reaction to these events.
At certain points in our life we may experience an event or number of events that change the way that our brain is able to process information. These events can then become “frozen in time”; effectively not being processed at all or at least not in the way that our brains would ordinarily process them. Often remembering these events can be significantly distressing and even as distressing as the initial event(s). These embedded memories can stay like this in our neurology for years and can have a lasting negative effect; possibly affecting the way a person views the world around them.
At New Life Prospects we use a process called E.M.D.R (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) to help guide you through traumatic memories in a gentle and non-traumatic fashion.
Quite often, some trauma therapies can be in and of themselves traumatising. This is generally not true of EMDR. EMDR has the goal of allowing you to re-experience the memories that caused the trauma while gradually reducing the emotion attached to them. Our aim is to re-process these memories without any emotional attachment, therefore, releasing the grip they have on the present and leaving them, as they should be, as part of the past. The effects of this treatment can be profound in the release that can be experienced. The memories themselves cannot be altered but our reaction to them can and, by changing our reaction to them, this can leave us free to move forward in life with optimism and hope.
Using a mixture of EMDR and progressive hypnotherapy, we can work together to help you deal with your trauma, and restore balance and natural harmony to your life.
