Sunshine Coast Health Centre (, one of the top centres in British Columbia for PTSD and trauma treatment, is proud to announce a new blog post on hypnotherapy. The post is part three of a series on new methodologies to help treat trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

“Trauma and PTSD are underlying problems that manifest themselves through behavior and mental states,” explained Casey Jordan, chief marketing officer. “Fortunately, new evidence-based treatment options are emerging, and our current blog post explains some of the ideas behind hypnotherapy, which obviously is not new but is an emergent treatment option for many clients.”

Here is background on this release. Hypnotherapy is the use of different types of therapy in hypnosis, along with the mind’s own natural abilities, to resolve issues, relieve emotional burdens and achieve personal goals. It is a safe, effective process and involves the client and therapist working together to bring about positive changes in how they think, feel and act. It helps a person who is struggling to make sense of a traumatic event to have their mind put into a relaxed state where they can more easily deal with the lingering distress from a traumatic event or PTSD. When a person is in a hypnotic state, the brain is no longer trying to manage and balance the traumatic impacts with rationalizing thoughts/feeling/behaviors of the conscious mind that often make it difficult to function in a healthy manner.  

Hypnosis coupled with therapy can vastly improve a person’s chances to regaining control over their lives and behaviors again. An NCBI study determined that a client who has been diagnosed with trauma/PTSD has a higher susceptibility to being hypnotized. For these reasons, Sunshine Coast has released a new blog post on the topic and urges anyone suffering from trauma and/or PTSD to reach out for a consultation. No two persons are the same and it is only through work with experienced and trained therapists that one can formulate a treatment methodology that is unique to their experiences and needs.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, which officially opened on March 15, 2004. The Centre has a philosophy of care that goes beyond just addiction to include personal transformation based on three key therapeutic principles: interpersonal relatedness, self-definition (autonomy and competence) and intrinsic motivation. The Centre offers both drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment near Vancouver, British Columbia, but serves patients across Canada, particularly British Columbia and Alberta and cities such as Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. Sunshine Coast Health Centre uses a form of drug rehabilitation based on the research of Viktor Frankl and methodology of Paul T.P. Wong, namely "meaning-centered therapy."
