Child abuse and how it affects victims in the long term – Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Over the past 12 months there have countless cases of child abuse reported by the media focusing on high profile names and famous personalities. These cases go back years and years, which has made us think about how long the victims have been holding on to their traumatic memories for and how their lives would have different if they had dealt with them at the time.

At Cambridge Hypnotherapy, we regularly work with clients who have been abused physically, sexually or emotionally, and in the majority of cases all 3! Typically they talk about how they occasionally wake up because of a nightmare, or if they hear about a similar situation in the news or watch something similar on a TV program then all of their old memories come flooding back into their mind. The vast majority of these clients also have something else in common, which is that they feel like there is something wrong with them and that they have a huge lack in self worth, because why were they treated like this… what was wrong with them?

Years and years of feeling like this has a huge effect on peoples lives and can often be diagnosed by the medical world as Depression. They may have started to develop an unhealthy relationship with alcohol as a way to escape these thoughts. As a youngster they may have found it hard to meet people as trusting people had become very hard to do, and as they grow up they find it safer and easier to spend time on their own rather than meet others, which has a knock on effect to relationships not only with friends, but romantically too. More often than not they also have not followed their chosen career path, rather chosen a safe, easy career where they can’t suffer any more trauma or upset.

The majority of clients that we work with reporting this type of situation are typically aged 40 years and above, therefore they have suffered with these emotions and problems for over 25 years of their lives, and thinking like this also makes them feel guilty and regretful for not dealing with it sooner! They dream about how their lives could really have been.

We can help them disconnect form those memories. Using advanced levels of NLP, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy, we allow their unconscious mind to simply go back into their past, and learn from it. The learn every single learning from every possible unconscious memory that once learned and preserved, will allow them to no longer experience any emotion at the thought of it. The memory will still be there, but there will a nothingness kind of feeling about it.

If you have suffered any kind of trauma in your past that is still bothering you to this day, please feel free to contact us here for a FREE initial consultation to find out just how easy it can be to change you life in only 2-3 sessions, or you can call us on 01223 720 120.

I look forward to hearing form you.

A new wave of blogs are coming from here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy!!!

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Every week here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we receive numerous enquiries that seem to centre around a certain theme that is current in the news or media. When we watch or read about a particular situation in the news, or watch something happen in our favourite TV programme it be very easy to relate it to our own personal lives and allow it to stir up a wide range of emotions from regret, guilt, fear or even simply sadness or happiness.

We have decided to focus upon this and start to write a regular weekly blog on whatever we feel is a topical event, allowing all of you that read this to realise just how easy it can be to disconnect and not let it bother you anymore.

Whether it’s reading or hearing about sexual abuse cases that stir up old buried memories, watching TV characters on EastEnders battle with drink or drug addictions, certain storylines in Coronation Street dealing with domestic abuse both mental and physical,  OCD behaviours on programmes such as Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners, or even focusing on eating disorders such as obesity and anorexia on episodes of Supersize vs Superskinny, we will be writing about it!

If you feel that any of our articles have helped you, please feel free to share them around and if you find that you relate to them in any way, and would like to learn how we as Hypnotherapists in Cambridge can help you let go of these issues in only 2-3 sessions, then please feel free to contact us here, or on 01223 720 120 to arrange a FREE initial consultation

Have a great day!
