Working with thoughts, feelings, behaviours and beliefs


through focused attention and enhanced response to suggestibility


to recover mental, emotional and physical wellbeing over time


Many professional therapists believe that trauma therapy is beyond the scope of their training and competence levels and therefore remain unsure how to support clients who present with post traumatic symptoms.  This means that a vast majority of trauma survivors are left on waiting lists for years and have nowhere and no one locally they can turn to for support and therapy.  Now for the first time since the 1800’s you can become fully qualified to heal trauma with hypnosis.  


Pierre Janet was the first therapist to develop a systematic, phase orientated treatment of post traumatic stress.  It relying heavily on the use of hypnosis.  He taught that treatment consisted of three phases and his recommendations and observations are as effective today as they were back in the 1800s (van der Hart, Paul Brown, van der Kolk, 1989).

The three phased work developed by Janet are:

Phase I:  Safety and Stabilisation. 
Formation of a safe and stable therapeutic relationship. Symptom-oriented treatment and preparation for dealing with traumatic memories.

Phase 2:  Processing of Traumatic Memories. 
Identification, exploration, processing and transforming of traumatic memories into meaningful experiences.

Phase 3:  Relapse Prevention, Reintegration and Rehabilitation.
Relief of residual symptoms, removal of learned helplessness, personality reintegration and relationship rehabilitation.

Judith Herman, Bessel van de Kolk, Peter Levin, Pat Ogden, Janina Fisher, Babette Rothschild, Grabbe and Miller-Karas and many other trauma treatment programmes incorporate elements of Pierre Janet’s approach to treating post traumatic stress.  There is universal agreement from these trauma experts that:  

Hypnosis was the original and most effective way to treat victims of trauma.
Hypnosis has played an essential role in the development of modern day psychotherapy.
Hypnosis remains at the heart of all great trauma treatment and recovery.

Despite this, there has been no definitive hypnosis focused trauma training for clients who present with complex trauma – until now.


You will learn the step-by-step processes involved in delivering phased hypnotherapy work to your clients to help release them from the effects of trauma, repair their lives and recover their identity and freedom. By the end of the course you will be able to –

Slow down and deliver solution focused hypnotherapy through each of the three phases of trauma therapy.

Deploy hypnotic techniques designed to release trauma from clients who are frozen and/or dissociate from their body or have early attachment wounds.

Release procedural memory blocks so clients can complete blocked survival responses that stop them from re-connecting with their body.

Enable clients to develop empowered responses to environmental, social, sensory, emotional and psychological triggers.

Explain and use the neuro-biology of trauma, Polyvagal therapy and attachment theory to help you clients understand that trauma is a highly efficient survival response and that they can release, repair and recover.

Manage client expectations and deliver long-term highly effective, fully supportive, deeply engaging trauma therapy and healing.

Develop the skills to support clients through the release and recovery from difficult past experiences.  

Utilise an extensive portfolio of tried and tested tools and strategies to help them move through each phase of therapy at the pace that is right for each individual.

Understand that recovery isn’t linear and you’ll be able to guide them through the ups and downs of recovery in a professional, supportive and sensitive way.

Confidently and competently be able to sit with clients and guide them and support them in a way that leaves space for healing and growth.

Heal trauma though hypnosis and through highly specialised phased work.
