Trauma Therapy - PTSD and BLAST
The mind has natural mechanisms for dealing with shocks, however, if an experience exceeds a person's ability to cope with it at the time it occurred, the emotions around the experience may get "stuck".
PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Symptoms of trauma include reliving an event, hyper-vigilance, recurrent nightmares, etc. After experiencing a shock, it is normal to feel after-effects for a time, but if symptoms persist beyond one month, PTSD may be diagnosed.
BLAST TechniqueTM - Bilateral Analysis and Stimulation
Where a trauma has also created a phobia, resolving the trauma also removes the phobia.
BLAST can be used for serious traumas, or lesser anxieties. In each case, resolving the issues improves a person's well-being, and frees up energy for more positive enjoyment of life.
BLAST is contra-indicated (not to be used) during pregnancy, or in the case of serious psychiatric conditions as per hypnotherapy. Otherwise, it is safe.
The duration of treatment for dealing with the major events in a person's life is typically 1-4 one-hour sessions, though for a single incident, healing can happen in as little as one session.
