PTSD/Trauma

If you, or someone you know is suffering with the distress of PTSD or Trauma, I hope you can spare a moment to please read on. Regaining control of your thoughts and experiences without their daily intrusion is what I hope to help with. The most wonderful thing is the realisation that you do not have to talk about your experience in order for it to be treated. I can help you to lock away those images which will only reappear should you choose to revisit them.


What causes PTSD

When we think of PTSD it is quite common to think only of combat veterans, but it can apply to anyone who has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event which begins to hinder their every day life.

It can even set in after the death of a loved one if they died in, or you imagined they died in traumatic circumstances.

When we experience natural levels of anxiety our brain will process it and move it to a more suitable area where it can be controlled. When we suffer trauma orĀ overwhelming anxiety the brain can stop this process so the experience floats around with nowhere to go and any smells, sights or sounds involved in this moment can trigger flashbacks and panic.

Symptoms of PTSD

There are many symptoms of PTSD which can include intrusive thoughts, nightmares, difficulty sleeping, flashbacks, anxiety, feeling on constant alert, anger, depression, abuse of alcohol or drugs and avoidance of certain places or situations. There can even be a delay after an event before symptoms can occur and it is usual for PTSD not to be diagnosed before one month after the event, to give your brain time to naturally work through the experience.

Treatment

Using a process called Rewind which will be fully explained, treatment for PTSD is quick and can be done in one session without the need to discuss the traumatic event. Even if the trauma happened many years ago it is never too late to be helped.
