Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affecting British soldiers after tours of duty
On August 9, 2003, Lee Sanger was one of 30 soldiers in three vehicles called to Al Tannumah police station, which was being attacked by rioters.
They were greeted by a hail of bricks, then small arms fire, as the crowd surged forward to overwhelm the police station. The soldiers, led by Sgt Major Darren Leigh, managed to drive the rioters back. He later received a Military Cross for his bravery.
Lee returned to Britain in November, 2003, with his operational medal, craving a beer and looking forward to kicking back with his friends.
Months later in 2004, something terrifying started happening. “I was getting these noises in my head,” he remembers. “I heard gunfire and loads of shouting, people shouting my name. I thought it was schizophrenia at first.” In summer, 2004, he was diagnosed with severe post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Sourced from Liverpool post

What is Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy and how can it help PTSD
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind which we experience every day and many times during the day. When you sit down to relax and watch your favourite TV programme, then you will experience hypnosis in some form or another. As you become engrossed on what is happening on the TV, you start to become less aware of what is happening around you – you shut it all out. You may even reach a deeper level of hypnosis as you start to “nod off” but you can still hear what is being said, and should anything happen unexpectedly you would simply open your eyes.
Hypnosis is that gap between wake and sleep, no one just suddenly falls asleep, we all go through a gradual process of drifting down into sleep where we enter what is called the “Hypnopompic State” and when we wake up we gradually drift up from sleep through the “Hypnogogic State”
