Why it is important to get help and resolve the trauma in our life?
Trauma is an event that left emotional scars long after it occurred. Many of us learn to accept these scars as an inevitable part of our life experience and carry on, dragging the baggage of the past trauma with us, allowing it to color the rest of our life experience with shades of fear, pain and hurt. In a way, we resigned our power to change our experience with an attitude of – You cannot change the past… However, often along with the voice of resignation there is another voice of rebellion within us, asking – Why? Why did it happen? Why me? This is the part of us that knows we are destined for great things, we deserve a life of fulfillment and joy, we are here to grow and master our selves, and our past does not have to be burden on our present.
There is an unspoken consensus among therapists considering trauma being “incurable.” Unspoken agreement that trauma can be managed, but cannot be healed; that one can overcome the victimhood and become a survivor, but can never leave the trauma behind altogether. I am here to assure you – this is not true. What makes any event into a trauma is the powerful charge of unresolved negative emotions associated with the traumatic event. What if I told you that regardless of how horrific the event was, without the charge of anger, fear, guilt, shame and hurt accompanying the memory of this event, the event itself is just a bad memory that can remain archived in the annals of your mind. It becomes powerless over you and you regain the power over your life.
How can we resolve trauma?
In my Los Angeles clinic I have developed a unique 3 phase A-R-C psychotherapy system to create rapid and profound transformation within your life experience. Here is the A-R-C therapy approach:
A wareness – During the first Power-Step of psychotherapy we will evaluate all aspects of your life that brought you to where you are right now, including the traumatic events and their context. It is during this step that we also clearly define the ultimate goals for our work together, as well as the evidence procedure, which will show us that our work has been a total success. The Awareness Power-Step is a crucial step that identifies both the problem and the solution.
R elease – In the second Power-Step of our therapy we will use advanced mind-technology, such as Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP) and elements of hypnotherapy, to help you release the emotional charge associated with the traumatic events as well as the limiting beliefs that these events might have created in your mind. Using NLP and elements of hypnotherapy we will let go of unresolved anger, sadness, fear, guilt, shame and hurt. We will also release limiting decisions and old beliefs about yourself, others, and the world, and replace these with empowering beliefs to allow you to live your best life.
C o-Creation – The third and final Power-Step of psychotherapy is designed to provide new tools and resources to solidify your gains and establish your life trajectory toward your heart’s desires. During this step we create a sound and clear vision of your ideal life, and set you on the path of joy, purpose and fulfillment.
Is psychotherapy for me?
This is a valid concern and every time we make a strong commitment to anything, we want to know that our time, energy and resources are allocated wisely. I am often asked whether as a therapist I can guarantee my clients’ results, and this is an important question to answer. I can absolutely guarantee that on my part each of my clients receives 100% of my knowledge, expertise and support. The 3 conditions you have to accept in order to assure your absolute success are:
- Ownership of full responsibility for our life. Knowingly or unknowingly, intentionally or unintentionally, we are 100% responsible and our life is our making. If we are to create change in our life, we have to own that responsibility.
- Willingness to let go of the old baggage, including resentments, anger, grief, beliefs etc.
- Full commitment to making all changes necessary to achieve our goals.
This mindset of 100% commitment to your own success and wellbeing is the key component of our work. From my experience, 100% of my psychotherapy clients who showed up with 100% commitment to themselves, achieved remarkable life-changing results during our work together. Consider the incredible freedom you have to gain by healing the wounds and taking back the charge over your life. If you are still on the fence, pick up the phone and let’s chat. Great things await.
