Trauma Therapist Melbourne

A licensed trauma therapist Melbourne clients trust, Light Mind Counselling knows how trauma goes beyond distressing symptoms.

Emotions and memories stemming from adverse, traumatic events can often turn into debilitating mental health disorders. This is why we’re convinced that trauma responses shouldn’t be underestimated.

Statistics show that nearly 70% of adults will experience a traumatic event at various points in their lives. While many can cope with these experiences just fine, 20% of them will go on to develop trauma-related disorders that can eventually get in the way of the individual living a normal life. Sadly, it remains unclear how and why people react to traumatic memories differently. It is believed that a number of factors (e.g. temperament, genetics, and exposure) all play a role in this regard.

As scary as all these may sound, there is hope for trauma victims.

At the present, many types of therapy have come forward to offer help to anyone dealing with crippling trauma. Among those, one promising treatment comes in the form of hypnotherapy. Several studies have shown how this approach effectively helps individuals process feelings connected to trauma and diminish them to the extent that they have little to no impact on the victim’s daily function.

With hypnotherapy, a trauma therapist explores the different states of consciousness that play a role in your everyday life. But instead of just limiting the treatment to the conscious mind, he or she accesses one’s state of mind that focuses on personal thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. This is how Light Mind Counselling uncovers habits, skills, and past learnings that trauma victims don’t talk about as much.

By digging deeper, a trauma therapist like LMC helps you connect the dots and understand why you think and react to psychological wounds the way you do. As you come to identify the truths distorted by traumatic experiences, you can come to correct misguided beliefs that have given you a heavy mental burden all along.
