My name is Sarah Yuen Gilliat and I am a registered clinical hypnotherapist, specialised in trauma and PTSD, trained and certified by the Association of Registered Clinical Hypnotherapists (ARCH) in Canada, and a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council in the UK.
I came to clinical hypnotherapy after a 30-year career as an international broadcast correspondent, and a government, corporate and military strategic communications consultant.
After spending two years in Afghanistan, deployed with UK, US, Danish and Afghan troops as combat camera, plus three decades covering conflicts and natural disasters around the world, I chose to study clinical hypnotherapy, specifically to help traumatised people with PTSD-type symptoms.
During my training, I was led to study the work of John G. Watkins, an American military psychiatrist in WW2, who used clinical hypnotherapy to heal American soldiers coming back from the European front, and father and son hypnotherapists, Herbert and David Spiegel, who worked with soldiers who served in Vietrnam and Korea. I also learned about the work of British clinical hypnotherapists at Craiglockhart hospital in Scotland after the battle of the Somme. In all these situations, clinical hypnotherapy worked wonders to heal traumatised minds and bodies of shell shock/combat fatigue/PTSD.
I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life helping people eliminate their PTSD symptoms and take back control of their body and their lives.
If you would like to know more about me, or just have a chat about the applications of clinical hypnotherapy, please contact me.
Please also feel free to read a collection of military case histories in my book ‘The PTSD Solution: A Military Approach’ by clicking on the link below. It will give you a fuller understanding of how clinical hypnotherapy eliminates PTSD. An audiobook version will be available shortly. Two more volumes are also being compiled now.
