Clinical hypnotherapist and Trainer.
The work I do is treatments for people who have experienced psycho-trauma. The range of therapies cover Chronic Stress, Anxiety, Phobias & PTSD.
However, if you just feel ‘stuck’ then this is what most of my clients come to me saying.
Together we will find out why and then get yourself going again.
What is allostatic load?
Working as an allostatic load technician I aim to remove the childhood impressions and past traumatic memories without the use of drugs. Instead I use NLP, hypnosis, IEMT, provocative therapy and time based therapy techniques to cross the blood-brain barrier These theraputic techniques have been taught to me by some of the best teachers in their field. I started using hypnosis on Drs back in 1996 and to date have trained more than a thousand medical clinicians and addressed audiences of 500 or more to demonstrate and explain the techniques I find most successful. “Allostatic load” refers to the price the body pays for being forced to adapt to adverse psychosocial or physical situations, (the general wear and tear) and it represents either the presence of too much stress (chronic stress) or the inefficient operation of the stress hormone response system, which must be turned on and then turned off again after the stressful situation is over The primary hormonal mediators of the stress response, glucocorticoids and catecholamines, have both protective and damaging effects on the body. In the short run, they are essential for adaptation, maintenance of homeostasis, and survival (allostasis). Yet, over longer time intervals, they exact a cost (allostatic load) that can accelerate disease processes. The concepts of allostasis and allostatic load center around the brain as interpreter and responder to environmental challenges and as a target of those challenges. In anxiety disorders, depressive illness, hostile and aggressive states, substance abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), allostatic load takes the form of chemical imbalances as well as perturbations in the diurnal rhythm, and, in some cases, atrophy of brain structures. In addition, growing evidence indicates that depressive illness and hostility are both associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and other systemic disorders. A major risk factor for these conditions is early childhood experiences of abuse and neglect that increase allostatic load later in life and lead individuals into social isolation, hostility, depression, and conditions like extreme obesity and CVD. Animal models support the notion of lifelong influences of early experience on stress hormone reactivity. Whereas, depression and childhood abuse and neglect tend to be more prevalent in individuals at the lower end of the socioeconomic ladder, cardiovascular and other diseases follow a gradient across the full range of socioeconomic status (SES). An SES gradient is also evident for measures of allostatic load. Wide-ranging SES gradients have also been described for substance abuse and effective and anxiety disorders as a function of education. These aspects are discussed as important, emerging public health issues where the brain plays a key role.
