Is Age Regression Suitable for Treating Clients with PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder)?

Happy Hypno-Tuesday! Celeste will be making her last appearance on this series of Hypnosis Etc. on

Before we begin, I’d like to say that Celeste was a fabulous MC at the Solid Gold Weekend. The next big event for professional hypnotists is the Annual NGH convention from August 9 – 11, register now. Don’t be afraid to leave us any comments below, we aren’t scary zombies chasing you down, we love hearing from you and any thoughts you would like to share. Speaking of zombies, I’ve been watching the popular television show on AMC, “The Walking Dead,” and I’m hooked!

In this episode, Celeste has a question from a fellow hypnotist. The hypnotist is interested to know if age regression is suitable for treating PTSD. I begin by discussing the meaning of the word “depressed” and psychiatric labels that work its way into the public. Then I explain what to do with clients who tell you they are diagnosed with a mental illness. I speak about how to work with those not only with PTSD, but other mental illnesses.

I do age regression because it’s a part of 5-PATH®. To get a better understanding of how to treat clients, I use an example from the Vietnam War. I explain why age regression and phases of 5-PATH® such as informed child work, age progression and secondary gain are very effective.

Today’s Discussion Points:

  • What to do with clients who tell you they are diagnosed with a mental illness.
  • How you can work with PTSD clients at a behavioral level and within the limits of the law.
  • How to effectively use age regression and 5-PATH® techniques.
  • Why 5-PATH® is a very successful system to helping clients with mental illness.
  • Why understanding and identifying secondary gain is extremely important.

With respect to Vietnam War Veterans, I’m also a member of Viet Nam Vets MC and Legacy Vets. If you’re a veteran and like to ride motorcycles, this is a great way to support what we’ve been through. If you’re interested, email me at We have chapters nationwide and all over the world.
