Holographic Memory Resolution (HMR) reduces trauma symptoms in people with mental health concerns such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a history of abuse, or anyone with negative experiences that still affect them in their present life. It is a non-invasive way to process emotions related to trauma in a safe space so that people do not become re-traumatized.
Your counselor will begin with an assessment where you discuss memories or trauma that affect your day-to-day life. They will then use Hypnotherapy to bring you into a state of relaxation where your subconscious mind is more easily accessible. Your counselor will ask you to recall a distressing memory in this relaxed state.
Your counselor might ask you to describe the emotions that arise while visiting this memory. Usually, HMR counselors suggest guided visualizations that involve colors and symbols that work best for you to represent emotions that arise. By revisiting this memory and describing emotions, HMR can help you process the trauma by giving it less power. You become empowered as you realize you are safe and no longer in a traumatic situation. The idea of HMR is to make these memories less threatening to you in your present life.
