Our speaker will be Dr Geoff Ibbotson, a Yorkshireman by birth by now a Lancashire-based hypnotherapist and trainer with a long-term interest in past trauma and PTSD.

And that will be the subject of his presentation which is expected to include descriptions of practical ways dissociated imagery can be used to rapidly disrupt recurrent flashbacks, thoughts or memories.

His talk will also explain how therapists can use the client’s own strengths and resources to help them help themselves.

And he will describe how the use of imagery enables rapid successful treatment of PTSD in only a few sessions.
