When a person experiences a trauma (perhaps early in life or under a life threatening experience) and that trauma experience is not processed at the core level, an out-of-control trigger reactions to life situations and people will occur. These trigger reactions are DISPLACED REACTIONS IN LIFE in an attempt to resolve the original trauma.

A PTSD reaction can be triggered by a memory, a sound, etc. even when there is no immediate life-and death threat. PTSD is the mind/body’s way of expressing the original unprocessed trauma.


A trauma experience becomes
locked in the body/mind when an event is:





Those DISPLACED REACTIVE PATTERNS AND LIMITING BELIEFS can be cleared, reframed and repatterned.

The Anxiety Challenge:  PTSD
Healing Negative Programming

By Jane Anthony Buckman (c)

Many of us are programmed with negative beliefs such as "not good enough", "not pretty enough", "not smart enough". . . .   
Have you noticed how negative experiences have a more profound affect on you than all the positive ones you have experienced?  As children, we only have to hear, sense or experience criticisms a few times for it to impact heavily on us.  The negative programming can take hold in the subconscious mind at an early age and tends to stay there to be experienced over and over again.   

The Amygdala

These hurtful experiences and anxieties cause a shift in the Amygdala, a small organ deep in the subconscious mind.  This shift in the organ determines how we process particular situations.

The subconscious is a very powerful part of us.  It is responsible for over 90% of all human thought and function.  It's role is to protect us and it actually does that very well.   We, however, often manifest anxiety based on distorted information tucked in the subconscious. 

Reactions can be severe.  If the reaction is strong enough you will experience a full blown panic attack.  Some common experiences are:

  • Rapid heart beat, pounding heart or palpitations

  • Sweating

  • Shaking visibly or inside

  • Shortness of breath

  • Inability to think clearly

  • Chest pain or discomfort

  • Nausea

  • Unsteadiness

  • Feeling light-headed

  • Depersonalisation (feeling outside yourself or like you don't exist)



Anxiety and fear connected to speaking in front of a group of people, for example, can cause the same kind of fight-or-flight response as that of being chased by a lion. 

A milder form of anxiety would be a disruption in your emotional body where it can be felt as excessive worry and tension, restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, nausea, fear, self-criticism, etc.    

Once the negative beliefs that cause these reactions are established, they are very difficult to change.

So what is the answer?  

 I have found that Hypnotherapy and/or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to be very effective.  They can be used together or independantly.

The deep relaxation of hypnosis allows the door between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind to open enough for new positive information to enter and change the old programming.  

Hypnosis is simply about making a change in the subconscious mind to realign with your conscious goal.  Once a positive suggestion goes into the subconscious mind to change the negative one, it has the power to change your self-concept and behaviors.  This can be life transformative.

Anxiety Questionnaire



I am more open with people and talking to myself in a more positive, supportive way.  I’m more loving toward myself..  It feels very nice – warm, comforting and safe.  I have a more secure feeling.  I’m more outgoing and initiating more with people.  After our session I felt extremely powerful.   Feeling more connected to people – actually making a connection with someone that I would not do before.  Not so self-conscious – having more energy, being more productive, getting things done.   I was able to talk freely to parents of the children.  I was actually startled with myself – not self-conscious.  Even interacting with my peers was effortless …easy.  I had a much higher energy …so much more energy...


Jane is using a variety of modalities to help me with longstanding anxiety issues. I've been seeing some noticeable  improvements lately and have learned to master some techniques that I can use on my own. She is patient and kind, always understanding and willing to go the extra mile to help in every situation.  V.P.


Jane, There is no question that you helped me tremendously, not only with my recovery, but with my state of mind prior to the surgery. That Tuesday, as the day went on, I could feel that I had calmed down and that my nerves weren't tattered.  I truly couldn't believe how well I did that day and it was all because of you.  The next morning, my heart rate and my blood pressure were up, but I was still so much better than I expected to be.  Thank you so very much. C.Z.


Dear Jane,... I had the knee surgery on June 5th, and thanks God everything went very well.  I remember and practice the techniques you taught me, and I entered the Hospital, calm and confident. I am most grateful to you, because you gave me  confidence in managing my emotions, contributing largely to the successful operation. My best to you, R.A.


    I wanted to take this opportuntnity to thank you for your help.  When I first thought about coming to a Hypnotist, I really didn't know what to expect.  What I found was a caring professional who went to great lengths to discovery who I was as an individual and then help me focus on a self developing program that would allow me to fulfill my potential.  I realized thru my therapy sessions with Jane that my main issues all revolved around very low self-esteem.  All the reasons that I thought I was not successful had nothing to do with outside sources; all those negative feelings, insecurities, self-doubt.... came from within.  It was through Jane's help that I was able to break through my own barriers and start to realize my potential.  I still deal with all those awkward feelings and insecurities, but now I have the ability (using techniques learned in Jane's program) to continue to move forward.  Thanks for giving me back my potential Jane.!!!! B.P.


Jane:  Well, my insomnia problem seems to have changed significantly since seeing you for I am off the pills and sleeping quite well.  Last night is the best sleep I have had in quite some while -- I slept some 7 hours.  And I am most impressed with your CD and all the effort and most appropriate language that you used to craft it -- you are very talented and a true professional.  And, most importantly, I am most pleased that I went to see you.  Thank you very much. P.V.


SOCIAL PHOBIA ISSUE:  Before I met Jane, I was constantly nervous even doing simple things. I felt socially awkward and uncomfortable interacting with people I knew or didn't know. My confidence was very low. After our first session, I noticed changes. My nerves calmed, my confidence grew and I was able to speak more comfortably. Now, after several sessions, I don't doubt myself. I am interacting more in every situation. and I even sleep better. Thanks Jane for helping me become who I always knew was hiding inside. J.M


Going to see Jane has changed the way I see life. I use to constantly worry and experience frequent fear and anxiety, but couldn’t figure out why. The hypnosis that Jane has guided me thru has lifted the heavy cloud that had stopped me from being realistic. I feel I have begun a new chapter in my life feeling refreshed. Her techniques and approaches will forever be useful. Thank you for your kindness and help Jane. S
