There are a number of kinds of childhood abuse – physical abuse, emotional abuse and sexual abuse. Abuse victims can have personally experienced these, or witnessed them happening to others, perhaps brothers, sisters, friends, etc.

Childhood Abuse – Common Symptoms

All childhood abuse leaves deep scars, affecting your beliefs about yourself for the rest of your life. And even though the abuse may have happened a long time ago, it may still be affecting your life today. Many abuse victims admit to having low confidence, exhibiting higher than normal levels of aggression, having relationship difficulties, experiencing sexual problems, indulging in self-sabotage or even self-harm, harbouring guilty feelings, and feeling generally anxious.

Childhood Abuse Root Causes

If you were abused as a child, then you may have learned to believe things about yourself that may be completely untrue and even illogical. You may have come to believe that you were a “bad” person, and that somehow, it was your fault. Maybe you learned to believe that you are worth less than others, or that you have to justify yourself for some reason. Or maybe you believe that you deserve to be continually punished.

Childhood Abuse Treatment With Hypnotherapy

When the younger you experienced the abuse, it was like “emotion overload”, and when your subconscious mind just can’t cope at that moment, it uses a process called “repression” to protect you from being emotionally overwhelmed. The downside of this process is that emotions become “trapped” back there, and cause problems and symptoms in your present day life. While counselling  by itself is effective, using hypnosis and hypnotherapy, we uncover those repressed memories and emotions quickly, allowing you to finally resolve them, and release them, so that you can be free at last. It does take a little bit of courage to face up to and finally resolve these issues, but you’ll be glad you did.
