Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD)
Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome is often linked with the armed forces or the 999 services. Another common cause is a difficult birth affecting one or both the infant and the mother. Sexual and physical abuse are well documented cases in the media for PTSD. There are many minor traumas that can cause problems later in life and the connection to the cause is unknown consciously due to there sometimes being a delay in symptoms. Bad experiences as a child or an adult whether known or unknown can sadly have life ruining affects.
The good news for you is that you have recognised you need help in dealing with these things. I cannot make you forget what has happened but together we can lead you through a combination of hypnotherapy and other resources to give it a manageable level of significance so that you can focus with getting on with your life and not feeling troubled.
The best and most comforting thing about the past is that it is in the past and you don't need to keep being haunted by the memories. Instead you can look forward to feeling calm and relaxed and able to enjoy more social interaction with friends and family
