Trauma & Chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.


Trauma refers to your response after an experience, that psychologically overwhelms, or disturbs you - that you perceive as harmful, frightening, or life threatening.  It often results in shock, denial, and can have an affect directly body, brain, and behaviour of a person. Traumatic events can happen at any age, and can have lasting effects on your physical and mental well-being. Each individuals experience, and response to trauma differs - it can be said that, for one to feel traumatised from an event, it has to be an event that is really serious - yet, this is just not the case. We can all experience things differently, and what affects one person, may not have the same affect on another.

How Mac Therapy Deals With Trauma.


Mac Therapy offers a confidential safe space, for your story to be heard in a non judgemental, and supportive environment (divulging your story is optional - not everyone likes to talk), whilst using highly effective techniques to address, and rewire painful childhood/adulthood traumas, and present day triggers - whilst easing, and managing anxiety, low mood, and negative self concepts.

I prefer to use Hypnotherapy & NLP techniques for my clients working through Trauma, as it ensures my client is fully relaxed throughout, even when working with difficult subjects. Again, this is not set in stone, and tailored to my client's requirements.

Mac Therapy works with EACH traumatic event in ONE session - opening up the trauma, and closing down the session in a positive manner.  I do not want my clients carrying an 'open can of worms' from one session to another, with a whole week in between.  I always state to my clients in the beginning that the worst they should feel, is a little emotionally tired the next day, which should restore after the second night of rest - this is due to the release of suppressed emotions, and often a feeling of relief.  

Mac Therapy offers 6 & 8 week programmes for 'Trauma Rewire & Restore' which entails;

1. Reducing any anxiety, and low mood that currently presents.

2. Teaching you healthy coping mechanisms to work with at home.

3. Rewiring of the Trauma including; dealing with feelings, and thoughts that developed from this event (feelings of shame, guilt, blame, anger etc).

4. Connecting to and supporting the Inner Child.

5. Rewiring of any negative, or destructive self-beliefs (I am bad, it was my fault, I am not worthy).

6. Creating new habit and behavioural changes (rewiring old habits, and behaviours that are unhealthy, or that you developed, trying to keep yourself safe).

7. Develop a healthy concept - how you feel about yourself, whilst increasing your self worth, self esteem, confidence, and heightening self awareness.
