Trauma Therapy - PTSD and BLAST
The mind has natural mechanisms for dealing with shocks, however, if an experience exceeds a person's ability to cope with it at the time it occurred, the emotions around the experience may get "stuck".
PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Symptoms of trauma include reliving an event, hyper-vigilance, recurrent nightmares, etc. After experiencing a shock, it is normal to feel after-effects for a time, but if symptoms persist beyond one month, PTSD may be diagnosed.
BLAST Technique® - Bilateral Analysis and Stimulation
BLAST is an extremely fast and powerful method for resolving traumas, after which they lose their emotional charge, and symptoms of that trauma do not return.
Where a trauma has also created a phobia, resolving the trauma also removes the phobia.
BLAST can be used for serious traumas, or lesser anxieties. In each case, resolving the issues improves a person's well-being, and frees up energy for more positive enjoyment of life.
BLAST is contra-indicated (not to be used) during pregnancy, or in the case of serious psychiatric conditions as per hypnotherapy. Otherwise, it is safe.
The duration of treatment for dealing with the major events in a person's life is typically 1-4 one-hour sessions, though for a single incident, healing can happen in as little as one session.
The BLAST Technique® was created over 11 years ago by psychotherapist Nick Davies in order to speed up the process and efficacy of PTSD and trauma treatment for an all-round better and more efficient experience for the client. It draws from some of the research of neuroscientists and neuropsychologists Joseph LeDoux, Peter Naish and Ksenja da Silva, and utilises several treatment modalities to create what we practitioners and our clients believe is the fastest most effective treatment for this chronic, yet curable condition.
