Hypnotherapy is the linchpin of the Holistic Counselling I practise to help you with anxiety, grief, PTSD and self-esteem issues. Strategic Psychotherapy, Eriksonian Hypnosis and other modalities are combined to create a counselling plan that effectively addresses the root cause of your issues.

While hypnotherapy is not a magic bullet, and the idea of a client being "zapped" into a healthier mental state is pure fiction, Clinical Hypnotherapy has been proven to significantly improve the efficacy of counselling interventions for a number of issues.

Hypnotherapy and Trauma

It’s a sad commentary on humanity that many advancements in medicine were developed or perfected because of war. Blood transfusions, the use of antibiotics, anaesthesia even the development of chemotherapy for cancer treatment are among them.

Some advancements in mental health can also trace their origins back to the treatment of those suffering from mental scars left behind by war. One of these was the development of hypnosis as a treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Origin of the Term

The term Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was first used in the late 1970s. It was adopted by psychiatrists who treated veterans returning from the Vietnam War. Of course, the effects war had on soldiers’ mental health were recognized long before then.

During the American Civil War, soldiers were said to have a “Lost Heart;” in WWI, it was called “Shell Shock,” and in WWII, it was “Battle Fatigue.” Or “The Thousand-yard Stare”.

Sadly, PTSD sufferers were in those days often regarded as cowards, court-martialled and even executed for desertion. We have come a long way since then, but a great deal of additional research needs to be done to adequately address the problem of PTSD.

The Nature of PTSD

Obviously, PTSD isn’t exclusive to those who served on the battlefield. Anyone who has experienced a traumatic event may share disturbing thoughts and feelings, flashbacks, nightmares, sadness, fear or anger
related to their experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended. They may feel detached or estranged from other people. PTSD can also be comorbid with anxiety and depression, making it incredibly troublesome to deal with.

Early on, just like those in the military, civilians who suffered from PTSD were labelled with conditions with unfortunate names. For instance, the trauma symptoms experienced by persons who survived a train crash was diagnosed as Railway spine.

World War I

Now, where does hypnosis and, by extension, hypnotherapy come in?
Let’s go back the WWI for a bit, or as it was called then, the war to end all wars. The conflict was then unparalleled in its scale of death and devastation than any conflict before it. In four years, the world lost 20 million lives due to the work ranking to this day among one of the deadliest human conflicts in history.

In addition to the devastation in terms of the loss of human lives, those in authority were coming to terms with the cost of the damage the battlefield was doing to the mental health of their soldiers. Armies were losing a staggering amount of soldiers to bullets, shells, and gas and the effects of what they called “Shell Shock”.

Early Use of Hypnosis in PTSD

Queen Square’s National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery took in psychological casualties from all allied countries. Soldiers presented with symptoms ranging from unexplained deafness, abnormal gaits, violent shaking, paralysis, anxiety, depression, hallucinations, flashbacks and persistent nightmares, all classic displays of PTSD. Doctors could not find a medical explanation for the symptoms, and sufferers were described as having “shell shock” or battlefield psychosis (Ketchell, 2014).

The typical course of psychological treatment wasn’t working fast enough for the powers that wanted these soldiers battle-ready and back on the front line. The doctors taking care of them were distressed by their patients’ seemingly incurable state. It was a challenge faced by both the Allied and Central Powers.

Psychologists tried everything to make a name for themselves, but the most significant successes were achieved using hypnosis. There are several surviving clinical films showing a remarkable turnaround for some patients. Unlike today hypnosis was used as a single modality treatment, meaning the client wasn’t given a holistic treatment for the condition, just hypnosis alone.

Hypnosis was still viewed sceptically, however, despite these victories until its wide acceptance as a therapeutic tool during and after the second world war.

Modern Usage

As I mentioned before, PTSD isn’t exclusive to military veterans. Any traumatic event can bring it on. It is common after physical or sexual assault, prolonged abuse, severe injury or witnessing a death. And while post-traumatic stress disorder is far more common among different subgroups like the armed forces, rape victims, prisoners, law enforcement officers, and emergency responders, the prevalence rate in the population can be below.

For instance, in North America, although 40-60 per cent of community adults are exposed to trauma, only about 8% develop PTSD, which suggests to resources that trauma alone isn’t enough to cause PTSD.

What do I mean by that? For example, a husband and wife drive home from dinner and get into a bad car accident. What allows the wife, after her recovery, the ability to continue on with her life as if the crash never happened while the husband has a panic attack at the thought of driving?

Many theories have posited why this is the case that range from the philosophy one carries with them throughout their life, a person’s social position to a genetic predisposition for PTSD.

Hypnosis for PTSD Today

Today if hypnosis is employed in treating PTSD, it is used as an adjunct to some form of psychotherapy. In my practice, hypnotherapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy, DIalectice Behavior Therapy, positive psychology, and hypnosis.

Most post-traumatic stress disorders will fall under the umbrella of CBT. The goal of the hypnotherapy would be to, among other things.

• Improve your symptoms
• Teach you skills to deal with it
• Restore your self-esteem

We would do this by changing the thought patterns that disturb your life.

There is Hope

While PTSD can be a long-standing debilitating condition, it is important to remember hope for those struggling with this disorder. About 50 per cent of clients recover while the other 50 develop a cornic version of the condition.

Hypnotherapy, regular talk therapy, meditation, medication all offer an individual an opportunity to properly process the traumatic memory. There isn’t a one size fit treatment for any disorder, particularly this one. In my opinion, trauma survivors should be encouraged not to be discouraged and give everything a try until they find something that works for them.

While hypnotherapy has shown to work quicker than talk therapy alone, I would caution anyone not to be fooled into believing that long-lasting change can happen overnight. This is not an instant fix or cure.

If you have become the victim of a traumatic event, seek help as soon as possible; addressing issues quickly can help shorten recovery time.

Geopathic Stress
Geopathic stress is the distortion of Geo-electromagnetic energies in the earth’s field of underground water courses, mineral deposits; faults and underground cavities. These distorted or negative energies may radiate through your house or work place, affecting the health of the occupants in different ways. The problem arises when people spend long periods of time working or sleeping in these lines or zones of ‘Geopathic stress’ (GS). The healing of land and houses is essential for good health and wellbeing

Symptoms of Geopathic stress

While Geopathic stress does not cause illnesses directly, it may weaken the immune system which in turn weakens the body, making it slower to heal and more susceptible to illnesses such as cancer.

Sleeping in a Geopathic zone is particularly stressful. If you sleep on a spiral, where two Leylines of the negative energy cross, for example, two underground rivers, not alone may it affect your sleep patterns by causing broken or restless sleep or nightmares, you may wake up in the morning feeling more tired than when you went to bed. This is because the adrenal gland works overtime to compensate for the distorted earth radiation. The brain also cannot relax into a deep sleep to repair and regenerate the body due to the high content of adrenaline in the blood. Over time, the fact that you sleep in this energy overnight, may lead to energy imbalance or long term illness.

Any of the following are believed to result from exposure to Geopathic stress:

Behavioral problems, e.g. Aggression, hyperactivity
Emotional instability
Sleeping disorders and restlessness
Cancer, M.E. And M.S.
Aches and pains, e.g. Headaches
Back problems
Infertility and cot deaths
Asthma and allergies
Stress and nervousness
Lack of concentration or memory loss
Exhaustion, fatigue or loss of strength
Absenteeism at work due to sickness
Not responding to medical treatment

Physical indicators of Geopathic stress

Animals that gravitate to lines or zones of GS include: cats, owls, slugs, snails, insects such as ants, bacteria, viruses, wasps and bees. Most mammals avoid areas of Geopathic stress. Horses and cows stabled over GS may become sick or prone to injuries. In Ireland in the days of old, people used to put cattle into the fields to see where they would sleep knowing that they would not sleep in areas of negative energy. This is then where the buildings were placed, in the good old days before planning permission!

Areas of non-productive fruit trees, gaps in hedges, twisted growth, patches in lawns and trees where lightening has struck can indicate areas of GS.

Animals and very young children can feel instinctively if a place is healthy or not i.e. If there are lines or zones of Geopathic stress within it. If children are oriented differently from when they were tucked in, or don’t want to sleep in their beds it is wise to check for lines of the GS.

Can the level of Geopathic stress be measured?

Through the art of dowsing, Dr. Gustav Freiherr von Pohl, the ‘Grand Old Man’ of GS, developed a scale to analyze the strengths and effects of the contaminated leylines

The scale runs from 1 to 16 with the following effects:

Up to 4: No effect.
5 – 6: Obesity, swelling of joints, headaches, sleeping problems, anxiety.
7 – 8: Mental disorders, addictions, suicides, depression.
9 plus: Cancer, leukemia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and many other disorders.
In both Germany and Austria it is the law to have your house checked for Geopathic stress before you move in.

Shamanic Space Clearing

How it works: I use Shamanic Journeying tools to connect with the space and with my guide and helpers. I then remote view the house clairvoyantly and intuitively so that I can remove and transmute energies from my clients’ living or work spaces to restore energy, harmony, peace, flow, and promote growth in their home and their lives.

Once this work is completed, clients often report feeling more grounded, relaxed, energised, and that they feel more harmonious energies in the home.

Working with clients remotely, I open sacred space and commune with the House, the Land Energy, and with Spirit to intuit what is needed. I ask for information and guidance for you in relation to your space. Then I rattle and sage the home, office, or building within sacred space remotely holding the vision of the space in my mind while I shamanically journey - meaning, I go into a mild trance state - to the Spirit world or ‘non-physical reality.’

I will conduct healing and clearing of the space, for removal of that which is not serving the highest good. I usually visualise each energy that is removed, enabling me to write a report about the experience.

This is a remote healing for any location. You receive a written report.

Writer's Block Shamanic Healing Session

Before the Session

I do my pre-meditation to find out the main reasons for your writer's block. (This happens psychically, where I generally just need your name, but a picture can help, too.)

It may be as simple as a deep rooted belief that once you write from your heart and really put your honest thoughts and fantacies out there, you will be harshly judged, not understood, criticised, unappreciated, ridiculed, laughed at, so on and so forth. It may have its origin in a trauma you have experienced in this life time or more than one lifetime. It could be a karmic cycle you're going through and maybe it's not the first life, where you struggle to be your true self and to express yourself freely.

Perhaps, it could be a belief that no matter how hard you try, you can never create a really good piece of writing. Perhaps, it's an issue of completing something. Perhaps, concerns over money and writing what sells (and not what is close to heart) that's the problem.

The above are just examples. I would need to meditate to see what your unique situation is.

Reading Part of the Session

In this part, I will let you know what I saw in my visions when I pre-meditated on your writer's block.

Healing Part of the Session

We will discuss the reading part of the session and wil find what traumas / reasons / habits / beliefs / etc. are available for healing. We may find the specific events, decisions or promises you made in the past that need to be revisited and changes made. With your permission, I will perform shamanic healing for those particular birth places of the limiting beliefs, fears and hurts that lie at the heart of why you are experiencing your writer's block.

This kind of healing is not only good for critical instances, where help is needed. If you are not experiencing writer's block at this time, this kind of healing can reveal issues you would benefit from healing and clearing to become even better at what you do, do release any fears, judgements, beliefs, limitation that may be hindering your writing at this time.

The goal of this healing session is to get you to feel safe and comfortable being your true authentic self, making your authentic decisions and taking bold steps in the persuit of freely and openly expressing your true self in a unique way, and doing it with pleasure, joy and peace.

Please write your questions, concerns and anything else you would like to know about this session in the comments below.

  • Please book your session a few days in advance because I need some time to meditate on your particular situation and understand for myself, what action steps can be taken for healing.
