“Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you, as a result of what happens to you," says Dr. Gabor Maté, a renowned expert in trauma and addiction.
Trauma can be caused by a single event such as car accident, or ongoing exposure to chronic stress, abuse, and it can have long-lasting effects on an individual's mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
Trauma is a complex and multi-dimensional experience that affects individuals differently. It can manifest in various forms, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and physical symptoms such as chronic pain.
Marisa Peer believes that one of the root cause of trauma is a lack of love and connection. When individuals feel disconnected from others, they can become vulnerable to traumatic experiences.
Trauma can also occur when individuals are unable to process difficult emotions, such as grief, anger, or fear.

HOW CAN RTT HELP HEAL TRAUMA?
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is a highly effective therapeutic approach that can help individuals overcome trauma and achieve lasting healing and transformation.
RTT combines the best elements of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and neuroscience to create a powerful healing experience.
Using hypnotherapy, individuals can access their subconscious mind and explore their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Relieve worry and reduce intrusive thoughts ad rumination.
During an RTT session, I guide the individual into a relaxed state of hypnosis, where they can explore their emotions and experiences in the subconscious without judgment or fear. Make safe space to process the feelings of anger, fear, shame and loss.
In a self-directed manner, I then help the client to make the connections of the scenes and the root cause of the trauma and reframe negative beliefs and thoughts and rewire them with positive and empowering ones. Open space for closure.
RTT can also help individuals develop a deeper understanding of their emotions and experiences, which can lead to greater self-awareness and personal growth. By exploring the root cause of the trauma and addressing negative beliefs and emotions, individuals can release those unhealthy beliefs and thoughts and experience lasting healing and transformation.
Trauma is a deeply distressing experience that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope, and it can have long-lasting effects on their mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
Trauma imprints itself on our body and nervous system, which is why talk therapies are often unsuccessful. According to Trauma expert Dr Bessel van Der Kolk, therapies that rely on revisiting traumatic events may cause retraumatization, hindering the healing process.
With RTT client can safely tap into the subconscious that holds the root and reviews it to promote healing, self-attunement and inner peace.
Overall, healing trauma allows you to reclaim your life, experience greater well-being, and build a foundation for a healthier and more fulfilling future.
