Release the Past and Free Yourself from the Lingering Effects of Trauma
Trauma comes in all different shapes and sizes. Let’s work together to release anxiety and depression triggered by your past. I use a blended mixture of hypnotherapy and trauma coaching to help my clients master their daily lives, relationships and PTSD triggers.
What is trauma?
Most people have experienced trauma at some point in their lives. A high percentage of adult trauma echos from disturbing events originally experienced in childhood. This trauma is often retriggered later in life by another powerful event, circumstance, or relationship.
Trauma is, at its core, psychological damage to the mind. Often trauma is identified through disorders such as PTSD, depression, anxiety or dissociative disorders.
Once someone exceeds their ability to cope with their trauma, the build-up of stress can be overwhelming. This can often result in long-term cognitive problems, negatively affecting the capacity to which one can freely live their life.
How is trauma affecting your life?
General signs of trauma can include:
— Hypervigilance: fight, flight or freeze
— Fawning (people-pleasing and/or co-dependence)
— Withdrawn emotionally and/or physically
— Severe fatigue (always tired, not wanting to wake up or leave the bed
— Suicidal thoughts
— Self-harm: drinking, fighting, substance abuse, gambling, cutting
— Weight gain and loss
— Mood swings and changes in behavior such as: anger, sadness, confusion, frustration, denial, fear, and/or shame
Physical and emotional side effects of trauma can include:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Difficulty with relationships
Emotionally unstable, sudden outbursts
Aches and pains
Malaise (feeling ill or general sickness)
Forgetting to eat, exercise or perform daily routines
Migraines, memory loss, brain fog
Loss of hearing
Loss of sight
Hair loss / Alopecia
This list is by no means exhaustive. However, it highlights how a traumatic, unexpected or prolonged event can be life-changing, which can affect the health and well-being of an individual and their families.
Unfortunately, there is a stigma of asking for help. Arguably, the stigma is being stamped out, as more and more people are taking positive steps forward by reaching out to professionals such as doctors and therapists.
I am a Trauma specialist and hypnotherapist. I was trained and qualified as a Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) Practitioner, where now I use a blended mixture of hypnotherapy and trauma coaching skills and tools which I have learned and acquired over the years. these skills have proven time and time again to have rapid success.
I regress the client back to the first time they felt the way they feel and help them remaster their mind by highlighting the root cause of their problem and aid them to rewire the issue.

Hi, I’m Gareth Evans
I’m a trauma specialist and I'm passionate about helping people recover from trauma because I know firsthand what a real difference it can make to improving your life.
I am no stranger to trauma. I grew up living with 4 siblings (and very strict parents) on a very rough council estate in Leominster, England.
My mother ruled the home with an iron fist. My father was disabled and he had a very fiery temper. Some of my siblings turned to drugs and alcohol where I turned to the military.
I previously served 20 years in the British Army, including 15 years with the Royal
Scots Dragoon where I was deployed constantly to both Iraq and Afghanistan.
I lost friends and colleagues in various kinetic engagements and subsequently, I was diagnosed with PTSD.
I have always taken a keen interest in helping people and in 2016 I decided to transfer to the Army Welfare Service (AWS) where I spent 5 years helping soldiers and their dependants through bereavement, anxiety, couples therapy and anger management; (this list is not exhaustive). During this period I achieved a level 7 Diploma in Specialist Welfare in Occupational Health. This was a fulfilling job and it helped me move forward and learn more about myself. However, the most effective method I came across for trauma recovery was Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT). I dove into RTT as I loved the methods used, I qualified as an RTT Practitioner and started working with people immediately.
I felt instantly drawn towards RTT because, first and foremost, it combines Neuro-Science with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnosis and what I love so much about RTT is that the results are mostly instantaneous.
I spent years analysing my own trauma and I overcame PTSD by a method I came to teach myself. In 2020 I decided to become self-employed in the field of mental health, as I was able to reflect on my own traumatic background and harness my in-depth knowledge taught to me by the AWS and RTT to create a powerful rapid therapeutic coaching company called 'Remaster Your Mind'.
Additionally, as I am a strong believer that people should always have a plan to move forward and we should ask ourselves "what next"? Well for me; currently I am waiting to hear back from Oxford University as I plan to broaden my already extensive knowledge and study Psychodynamics as a postgraduate.
Secondly, my long term goal is to become the global face of PTSD recovery.
I take great pride in the results I get for my clients and I would be honoured to help you Remaster Your Mind as well.
Here's what my clients have to say...
"Gareth was amazing. Calm, confident and very reassuring.
He made me feel great during the session, gave me confidence that I can achieve my weight loss goal and reassured me that everything will be ok. The outcome was positive. He gave me the voice recording of the therapy that I listened to for 21 days leading up to our next session."
"Gareth took the time to explore my anxiety with me.
He was curious, interested and I believed he had my best interest in mind, he wanted the session to work for me.
I gained insight into some of the reasons why the events from my childhood (not being seen, listened to, wanted, loved etc) have informed my approach to difficult situations. I have a tendency to 'shut down' to cope, to survive and not feel hurt. The session has lifted those beliefs.
Gareth was focused and able to lead the session without being too pushy. He kept the structure going and was able to move things forward well."
"I felt great afterwards, really relaxed and positive.
Gareth put me into hypnosis. Then he regressed me back to 4 scenes to find the root cause of my fear of public speaking. We then spoke about how these beliefs were based on the experience of a child and how they were no longer relevant to me. I enjoyed the whole session but for me Role, Function, Purpose and Intention (RFPI) was really powerful. Especially when Gareth talked me through allowing the inner part of me that came up with the fear of public speaking to leave. I understand now that I no longer needed it.
I felt great afterwards, really relaxed and positive and felt like a weight had been lifted and that actually I can speak in public.
Gareth demonstrates a very good understanding of my issue, everything he spoke about during the session was very relevant."
