Heal Emotional Trauma Hypnosis

What is Emotional Trauma?

Hebb’s axiom reminds us that every experience, thought, feeling, and physical sensation triggers thousands of neurons, forming a neural network. When you repeat an experience over and over, the brain learns to activate the same neurons each time.

Everything that happens to us, especially when we are young, shapes our self-perception and how we navigate the world. Disturbing events can distort this map, creating emotional triggers that unconsciously dictate our reactions instead of mindful actions.

Some triggers run deep within our subconscious, causing particularly harmful symptoms such as anxiety, depression, or negative emotional states.

Emotional and psychological trauma occurs when we face extraordinarily stressful events that shatter our sense of security, leaving us feeling helpless. This includes adverse childhood experiences like:

  • Witnessing parents fight or go through a divorce

  • Having a parent with a mental illness or substance abuse problem

  • Suffering from sexual, physical, or emotional abuse

These adverse childhood experiences have been associated with what is commonly referred to as toxic stress, which causes significant strain on the body and can result in both physical and mental health issues. What makes this issue particularly complex is understanding the precise impact of parental trauma on the behavioral and emotional well-being of their children. While there is still much to be learned in this area, research has shown a strong intergenerational influence, suggesting that the effects of trauma can be passed down from one generation to the next.

When our mind matures, it can process emotional trauma and leave it in the past. However, experiencing traumatic events in childhood often prevents us from doing so.

Unresolved trauma is tucked away in our subconscious mind, stored in our bodies, and forms emotional triggers as a protective mechanism. Any new situation reminiscent of the original trauma can set off these triggers, resulting in intense reactions.

Bessel van der Kolk, a psychiatrist, researcher, therapist, and author of "The Body Keeps the Score," discovered that trauma shuts down certain parts of the brain. The 'fight or flight' response is activated, releasing hormones ready for action. However, instead of following their natural course, these hormones become trapped in a traumatized state within the mind and body.

Responses like fear of failure, low self-worth, confidence issues, panic, anxiety, and unwanted habits are all examples of hidden emotional triggers that keep us stuck, disempowered, or frustrated.

How Can Hypnotherapy Heal Emotional Trauma?

Healing emotional trauma often requires advanced hypnotherapy techniques since hypnosis offers a direct pathway to the subconscious mind where traumatic memories, emotions, and beliefs reside. The subconscious mind influences our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and deep-seated patterns are stored there.

Advanced hypnotherapy techniques allow the hypnotherapist to access and work with the subconscious mind in a focused and targeted manner. By guiding individuals into a state of deep relaxation and heightened suggestibility, hypnosis can bypass the critical conscious mind and access the core aspects of traumatic experiences that may be buried or repressed.

During hypnotherapy, specific techniques like regression therapy can be used to explore and reprocess traumatic memories, release emotional pain, and resolve associated negative beliefs and emotions. Hypnosis also enables the integration of new, empowering suggestions and positive imagery to replace old patterns and promote healing.

Furthermore, hypnotherapy can address the physiological and neurological aspects of trauma. Traumatic experiences can dysregulate the nervous system and create imbalances in brain chemistry. Advanced hypnotherapy techniques can help regulate the nervous system, restore balance, and promote deeper physiological healing.

Overall, the combination of advanced hypnotherapy techniques, including regression therapy, subconscious reprogramming, and nervous system regulation, provides a comprehensive approach to healing emotional trauma. It allows individuals to access the root causes of their trauma, release emotional blockages, reframe negative beliefs, and create positive changes at a subconscious level, leading to profound healing and transformation.

What is EMI hypnotherapy?

Emotional Mind Integration (EMI) is an advanced form of hypnotherapy that combines beneficial principles of psychology, hypnotherapy, and neuroscience to address emotional trauma safely and efficiently.

As the name suggests, Emotional Mind Integration brings emotions and mindset into harmony with each other. Founded by Yildiz Sethi, a counsellor and hypnotherapist based in Queensland, EMI is described as neuro-trance psychotherapy.

While traditional hypnotherapy works by reinforcing positive suggestions at the subconscious level, EMI goes deeper by focusing on uncovering and resolving emotional trauma. It explores basic unmet needs like love, connection, or safety, and delves into buried feelings related to challenging events that we were unable to manage.

Emotional Mind Integration, also known as neuro-trance psychotherapy, is a powerful therapeutic approach that clears neural pathways to facilitate profound change. By entering a light hypnotic trance during an EMI session, individuals can access their Emotional Mind States and work towards transforming problematic patterns. EMI recognizes that our personality is shaped by these Emotional Mind States, some of which can hinder our well-being.

By rapidly rewiring the brain's neural pathways, EMI helps replace outdated reaction patterns with new, life-affirming beliefs and initiates a healing process. EMI has proven to be highly effective, with an impressive 90% of people experiencing remarkable positive changes within 3 to 5 sessions. Sessions typically last between 90 minutes and two hours, with an average price of A$400 per session.

What makes Emotional Mind Integration modality so effective?

Your brain consists of billions of neurons forming a complex network. Each experience activates thousands of them, creating connections or pathways. Neuroplasticity allows your brain to make new connections and pathways throughout your life. You can learn more about this in Norman Doidge's books, "The Brain that Changes Itself" and "The Brain's Way of Healing."

EMI utilizes a state of light trance to bypass the critical thinking mind, enabling access to neural pathways and resolving distressed emotional mind states caused by emotional trauma.

Throughout the process, the therapist maintains contact with you through verbal feedback to understand your progress and guide you to the next step of the healing pathway.

During this unique self-healing journey, you resolve and release emotional triggers, restoring inner balance between your mind and emotional states. This empowers you to choose different reactions to similar situations in the future.

In EMI sessions, there's no need to relive the experience that created your deep-seated emotional triggers. You may not even consciously recall what happened, or the triggers may be inherited through generational trauma. What matters is accessing and addressing the triggers themselves.

In just a few sessions, this process allows you to heal inner conflict, anxiety or panic attacks, break habits or addictions, and establish a whole new mindset by building healthier neural pathways.

Expect to reset at least one neural pathway in each session. The number of sessions required will depend on your desired outcomes.

Remember, 90% of people who experience EMI achieve remarkable results in just a few sessions. Imagine conquering your fear of failure, attracting satisfying relationships, living a calmer life, and finally achieving your goals! All of this is possible once you address the impact of the past and reboot your mindset.
