If you’ve had a very traumatic experience, it’s possible for you to be aware of that fact and yet still not have access to all of your memories related to that event. Luckily, there’s a way for people who have suffered through such experiences to try and regain their lost memories, if that’s what they desire: hypnotherapy.
Lost Memories Aren’t Lost
People who have suffered through experiences so traumatic that they have negatively impacted their memories of the event can benefit from using hypnotherapy services San Antonio TX because their memories aren’t truly lost. The truth of the matter is that past trauma can sometimes be compartmentalized in your brain in such a way that it’s impossible for you to access all the memories related to it. This is your brain’s way of trying to protect you from the emotional pain associated with this trauma.
Resolving the Unresolved
However, this leaves your trauma unresolved, which can lead to mental health or even general health issues. Hypnotherapy can help you access these painful memories that your brain has locked away in your unconscious mind so that you can work through them and overcome them, thus resolving your unresolved trauma. This can be beneficial and ultimately help you relieve the stress associated with this past, unresolved trauma and any related symptoms, either mental or physical, that you may be suffering from as a result.
In short, hypnotherapy can help you access memories that you can’t get to on your own. This can be beneficial if you feel that you’re suffering from the mental or physical manifestations of unresolved trauma that’s locked away in your unconscious memories. For example, some symptoms that can be lessened or resolved in this manner include anxiety, depression, panic attacks and nightmares that are specifically related to the traumatic incident.
