Make Powerful Choices to Create the Life You Want

October 25th, 2011

Trauma specialists worldwide agrees that for trauma to heal, two things are necessary -

- the person has to be empowered in relation to the trauma

- the body somehow needs to know it is over.

With extraordinary new therapies this can now be achieved without having to relive the trauma by “telling your story”. With Affect Regulation Therapy and the Richard Trauma Process (TRTP) results can be achieved fast and with lasting effects. With TRTP people can step to the other side of their pain in as few as three sessions.  See http://www.judithrichards.com.au for more information on this revolutionary hypnosis process.

Overcoming Depression – Achieve Happiness

January 2nd, 2010

Depression, often experienced as “the depth of despair”, is one of the most underdiagnosed medical conditions.  It also is common in trauma clients. When not managed well, it can become debilitating.  Sufferers often try to camouflage and deny their painful symptoms.  This does not have to be the case.

The good news is that there are a myriad of strategies that not only help us to conquer depression, but build a mental immune system that can ‘protect us from the beast’.  In addition to medical treatment and therapy, getting the right information is a powerful tool in speeding up recovery from depression.  By correcting irrational and limiting beliefs about ourselves we can take control of our emotions and get back in the driving seat of our life.

The first step in taking control is to realise that depression is something we do, rather than mainly a condition we experience.  Once we fully understand how we “depress”, it becomes easier to follow the strategies that will lead us to happiness. On some level, strange and offensive as this may sound, we choose all our behaviours. The undesired, unwanted misery we experience may be better than something bigger we do not want to face. When we become aware of this “crazy” phenomenon it opens up a whole new world of self-control and ultimate success.
