Post traumatic stress disorder

Are you putting on a brave face and suffering in silence?

Perhaps it is time to get some help.

What is PTSD?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder usually results from earlier personal traumas.

Sufferers vividly re-live unpleasant events, time and again.  This revivification can be triggered by an array of thoughts and memories.

Typical causes

  • Combat
  • Sexual assaults
  • Muggings
  • Burglaries
  • Losing a loved one
  • Car accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Embarrassing moments

Some symptoms

  • Intense distress when reminded of an event.
  • Pounding heart.
  • Sweating.
  • Flashbacks.
  • Nightmares.
  • Feelings of being remote.
  • Negative view of the future.
  • Disinterest in activities that used to be enjoyable.
  • Feeling guilty for letting someone down.

The way forward

Hypnotherapy helps to de-sensitise unwanted memories caused by PTSD and allow them to fade away for good.
