PTSD and War Veterans


Today I read an op ed piece on PTSD in the New York Times that had a powerful impact on me. I have always felt great respect for the sacrifice and hardship that our troops are willing to face, out of their heartfelt desire to protect and defend our country. A striking number of our servicemen and women are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Unfortunately, most of the PTSD sufferers I have worked with report that the conventional treatments for PTSD don’t work. When these methods give them any relief at all, progress is slow and often only marginally effective. This leaves their families feeling frustrated and sad, and the person with PTSD themselves feeling ashamed and afraid they are losing control.

Fortunately for people suffering with PTSD, hypnotherapy works extremely well for healing PTSD. With my clients, hypnotherapy has worked with adult sufferers of PTSD that started in a number of ways: from war and combat trauma to childhood trauma. Hypnotherapy has also gotten surprisingly quick results for these folks, many of whom had tried various talk therapy methods without success.

Read more in my previous blog post on how hypnotherapy can heal PTSD.

May all people be free of fear and have true peace of mind and heart.
