The Benefits of Hypnotherapy as PTSD Therapy

Advice,Self Improvement,Health
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can severely affect the quality of a person’s life. There are numerous PTSD therapies with hypnosis being one of the possibilities. Is hypnotherapy an efficient method of overcoming PTSD and what does it deliver?

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

People who experience traumatic events may feel a sense of loss, fear, panic and anxiety. Whenever these feelings continue for a very long period of time and begin affecting the quality of life, they are called post traumatic stress disorder.

PTSD is characterised by the re-experience of painful events, nightmares, inability to cope with events or situations that remind a person of the trauma and increased anxiety or fear. Flashbacks, intense physical reactions to reminders like rapid heartbeat and general apathy are also common for PTSD.

This condition is often brought on by events like war, the death of a loved one, natural disasters, childhood issues and abuse, kidnapping, sexual abuse, domestic violence and airplane crashes. Any other life-changing and shattering event can result in PTSD, as well.

How can Hypnosis Help Individuals Suffering from PTSD

People suffering from PTSD are advised to try hypnotherapy because it delivers positive results in several ways.

Many of the symptoms that PTSD sufferers experience are similar to what happens during a hypnotherapy session. People who experience PTSD respond to hypnosis quite well and access painful memories under the guidance of the therapist. Through hypnosis, these memories can be restructured to prevent PTSD symptoms in the future. Hypnosis and self-hypnosis are great tools for dealing with PTSD relapses, as well.

Various studies have been carried out to test these claims. According to one of the studies, treatment through hypnosis is at least as efficient as alternative PTSD treatments like psychotherapy. The results will vary from person to person, depending on how suggestible the individual suffering from PTSD is.

Scientific Evidence of Hypnotherapy’s Efficiency

In 2005, a study was carried out to compare hypnotherapy to other treatments commonly used to improve PTSD symptoms. Sixty seven volunteers with PTSD agreed to participate in the study. The methods used to treat these patients included hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling.

The results showed that the individuals that were treated with hypnotherapy and with both hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy had fewer PTSD symptoms six months after the sessions. Individuals that received solely counselling had a higher level of PTSD-related lifestyle problems.

Individuals that experienced hypnotherapy had also reported fewer incidences of re-experiencing the traumatic event.

According to Psychotherapy Magazine, individuals that suffer from PTSD can show up to 93 percent recovery after six sessions of hypnotherapy.

With cognitive behavioural therapy the figure is 72 percent after 22 sessions and with psychotherapy, 38 percent recovery after 600 sessions.

These studies and figures prove that hypnosis can be used to improve the quality of life of individuals that have experienced traumatic events in the past and are incapable of recovering.

Individuals with PTSD are generally easier to hypnotise than other people, which further increases the importance of this treatment option for post traumatic stress disorder sufferers.
