What is Trauma? – Trauma is an emotional response to a deeply distressing or disturbing experience such as an accident, rape or natural disaster. After the event, shock and denial are typical. There are usually longer term reactions such as unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms such as headaches or nausea. It may also be a personal trauma such as the death of a child.
When does Trauma Begin
As mentioned trauma can happen any time. So what is trauma? Quite often people will experience an event later in life, however there are times when these events can tie back to an experience they went through as a child. For example a person who is finding their partner is berating them in ways she recognises as the same as her father would berate her. There a people who struggle with their weight. People often say and agree that they are overweight as it protects them from the outside world. Why would they feel this? Quite often it is a result of previous negative relationships. To have any success with Weight Loss Hypnosisit is important to address the underlying cause of their trauma.
I work with people who have been traumatised as a child. Lack of love, being rejected or abandoned during those early years. This may be in the form such as handing the child over to someone else rather than the mother. Of course there are times when this is unavoidable. However that young brain isn’t aware of the reasons. It just knows that it is being separated from its mother. Of course there are many reasons. There can be emotional or physical abuse especially over a short or even a long period of time.
I recall one chap who was bullied by his three older brothers as a child. When he would go and tell his mother, she would tell them, “Oh, don’t worry they are just being silly.” So needless to say the bullying continued. Until one day as he aged and become stronger, he reacted to their bullying and really belted into them. They were crying and went and told their mother. What did she do? Gave that young fellow a belting for hurting his brothers.
What did this Teach that Young boy?
Yes, he can be strong and defend himself but it also taught him that he had to be angry to do that. This set up the pattern of being angry so he had a bigger problem now. To help him to remain calm he started taking drugs and of course to get enough of these he had to have money. So he became a dealer and this didn’t end well for him. He was caught and served a time in prison.
This is just one example of how the experiences when young can impact the life ongoing. The emotions people experience are often anger, sadness, fear, guilt, hurt, conflict etc. They often have a low self esteem and self confidence in themselves.
What can be done?
There is so much that can be done for people with emotional issues especially when explaining to them what is trauma. One of the most benefial and successful therapies I use with trauma is The Richards Trauma Process™ or TRTP.
What is Trauma and how will TRTP Help
TRTP™ is an elegantly simple, yet comprehensive, step-by-step process which resolves extreme trauma and trauma-related issues – anxiety, depression, fears and phobias. It achieves results quickly, effectively and safely – generally in 3 sessions.
TRTP™ does not merely address the symptoms of trauma. It deals with the underlying cause of the problem, removing the emotional charge from the past and returning the person to a state of empowerment,
During their first session, I give my clients a small notebook and on the back I have a sticker with Worry Journal on it. So whenever they are feeling worried, write it down – writing it down is harder work than thinking about it. Then set aside a 10 minute period at the end of the day to review what was written down and see if there was anything they could do about it. Usually there isn’t.
Then on the front of the notebook is a label called Gratitude Journal. Before they go to bed, write down 5 things they can be grateful for and it needs to be different each day. And then at the bottom write down Focus – what will they focus on as they go to sleep because our unconscious mind will focus on whatever we are thinking about as we go to sleep. Then when we wake up, that will often be the first thing they will think about.
While there are other tools given to our clients, the most important therapy is TRTP. Clients have the most amazing outcomes from this process. Check out the Testimonials on our Website.
