PTSD Affects More People Than We Realise.
If you recognise that you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), have you ever wondered how to heal PTSD? Did you know, that statistically, 7 out of 10 people have suffered severe trauma in their lives?
But more importantly, how does trauma impact our lives? Are there reasons behind sad patterns and stilted growth?
Trauma can make you more vulnerable to developing mental health problems at worst, and at best it will cause you to stop taking risks and seek safety instead. It can also directly cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To overcome PTSD, some people misuse alcohol, drugs, or self-harm to cope with difficult memories and emotions. Some seek professional help. Depending on how you’re affected, trauma may cause difficulties in your daily life and stunt your growth. Often, trauma will have us recede.
After personally being raised in an abuse cycle and experiencing far too many traumatic events, I came to realise how strong the neural pathways become. I felt less in so many ways and hid for most of my life. This caused me to feel alone.
From the age of 7 years old, I invested most of my after-school hours in the library in the psychology section. I wanted to answer a burning question, “how can I be normal?” This question evolved to become “how can I heal PTSD?” This led me on a mission to find out how to reduce and remove trauma altogether in my own life. I know firsthand, how trauma stunts growth, as we the traumatised, move into protective, safe environments to shield our fearful thought patterns. Often forecasting our own worst futures, we attract our fears into our lives.
I discovered a solution.
In 2004, after 33 years of searching, I found the solutions I was looking for and began testing and trialing psychological processes – some of which I designed myself. It wasn’t just one solution or one pill. It was a process.
By 2006 – I was working in a clinic and was able to remove depression, anxiety, and PTSD among other recessive states. My theories turned to practice and success finally arrived. For my clients, it seemed like a miracle was born. However, I believe miracles come from effective strategies that arrive only after considerable research and understanding.
Today, we continue to help individuals with what I call Brain Untraining and since 2006, I’ve been teaching our processes to life coaches, therapists, and psychologists, as well as helping many traumatised clients to resolve the source of their issues.
Our process is a blend of 54 years of research.
Our process is more akin to brain untraining than merely adding to their awareness as most traditional therapies do.
The phases of our work follow our unique formula:
We liken it to a hybrid version, a mix of counseling, psychology, and Brain Untraining process.
If you’re curious, here is our process.
The counseling phase.
1. Learning the client’s full story (so we understand the full scope of trauma and formed identity).
2. Allowing the client to vent and release (we all need to vent every now and again).
The psychology phase.
3. Understand all the participants and their intentions (this turns emotions logical).
4. Greater learning from what happened and how this grows you (this adds to understanding).
5. Forgiveness (without condoning behavior. No one moves on without this step).
The brain untraining phase.
6. Reframing the events to see their most positive intention and how these link to your purpose.
7. Brain Untraining the client’s neural pathways and clearing them of traumatic conditioning (this is the magic).
8. Future Pacing. Designing an evolved and positive future that delivers a level of excitement and meets their values.
What you can do today to make a difference?
Trauma and a stilted life or a life of fear are not permanent. There are proven methods to get beyond anything that holds you back.
