Hypnotherapy for Victims of Crime

Seddon Hypnotherapy understands the conflicted emotions that can come with the trauma associated with victims experiencing the aftermath of a crime.

Victims of crime and abuse are thrust into a world they did not choose, and as a result, they may lose faith in the people closest to them, including friends, family, and coworkers and faith in their ability to protect and provide for their family or themselves.

For a variety of reasons, crimes aren't always reported, and the victims attempt to continue with their lives like nothing happened. While this can sometimes work for a little while but the residual emotions left over from the traumatic event often build up under the surface over time. Eventually all that pressure must go somewhere and begins to affect their everyday lives. That's where we can help.

Victims of crime can experience many side effects including:

  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia or Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Repeated thoughts of the event
  • Guilt
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Confusion
  • Helplessness
  • Issues with concentration
  • Reduction in work or school performance
  • Withdrawal from family and friends

You can feel these emotions because even though physically the event has passed, in the area of your brain traumatised by the event, you are still experiencing it, still stuck there. 

There is nothing wrong with needing help to escape the traumatising events of the past. We will help you optimise your mind and step into a future of inner strength and optimism.

We work closely surviving victims and understand that clients can use funding from VOCAT to engage with our services. 

We offer sessions with experienced and empathetic hypnotherapists that provide support and assistance to surviving victims of crime.

What is VOCAT?

VOCAT, also known as the "Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal". The law mandated its creation to help victims of violent crimes in Victoria. 

By covering costs that were incurred or are reasonably expected to be paid as a direct result of the crime, these programs help victims get their lives back on track after being victimised.

Victims of Crime eligibility criteria are:

  • You are the victim and have been directly injured as the result of a violent crime.
  • You have suffered either a physical or a psychological injury.
  • The crime was reported to the police, and you made a police statement.
  • The crime was committed in the last two years in Victoria, Australia**.
  • You are related to a victim of crime.

If you believe that you fit these criteria, you can fill out a Victims of Crime enquiry form here http://victimsofcrime.com.au/ or if you have been directed to gather quotes please fill in our quote form.
