Effects of Childhood Abuse
Have you suffered Childhood sexual/physical or emotional abuse and seem unable to put it behind you?

Why is it important to get help for problems related to traumatic childhood events?

Traumas and adversities in childhood may leave scars that last into adulthood and put a person at risk for a variety of difficulties, including increased stress, relationship problems, sexual problems, and phobias.  For many people, it may be important to come to terms with past traumatic events. Survivors of abuse can gain relief from anxiety and depression and are able to stop focusing on the disturbing memories and feelings associated with traumatic childhood events.

Here are some symptoms you maybe suffering:

-Dissociation, or feeling detached, confused. In severe cases you may feel there is a constant struggle going on in your mind, holding you back and making you feel trapped.

-Troubles with trusting other people, either too much or too little.

-Difficulties establishing boundaries in relationships.

-Flashbacks, nightmares, sleeplessness.

-Feeling the need to self-medicate, with drugs, alcohol, compulsions, cigarettes.

-Low self esteem, isolation, loneliness. Fear of intimacy with partners.

-Sexual dysfunction, or a lack of interest/pleasure in sex, or promiscuity.

-Panic attacks, fears, worry, specific phobias, e.g.of being sick.

-Constant grief because of the loss of innocence, childhood, normal relationships as a child, and trust. Maybe your tears seem to come from nowhere, or are triggered by certain events.

-Physical Effects may include unexplained back pain, tension in muscles and tendons, joint pain, Asthma, breathing difficulties, unexplained headaches, inability to relax your body, a painful "holding on" experience in your body.

-Eating disorders, being overweight, difficult relationship with your body.

-Repeated patterns of abusive relationships.

There are many more after-effects of childhood abuse that adults may experience. If you are having difficulties and think they may be related to childhood abuse phone and find out how Hypnotherapy can help.

Further information

Analytical Hypnotherapy aims to get to the root of emotional problems, thus allowing your mind to rethink and readjust to new information. It works on a deep  subconscious level, and is based on the idea that the negative beliefs people have learnt in their lives have to be changed before more positive ideas will take root.

The first session involves a discussion about the process and what you can expect during sessions. Alllow your subconscious to begin to place the bits of puzzle together. You will also experience the time and space to focus on what you want to achieve in Therapy. It will involve an experience of Hypnosis.

I usually book from session to session, and this can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or at the correct pace for your lifestyle.

Please phone or email to have a chat and have your queries answered.

Make Positive Changes in your life easily and naturally.
