Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Are you having recurring, disturbing thoughts or nightmares about a traumatic event? Do you sometimes experience the same unwanted feelings you felt when the trauma took place? Do you have flashbacks of the trauma (visual or auditory memories that occur suddenly) even while awake? Are you avoiding even the thought of anything that might be associated with the trauma?
You may have a form of PTSD (or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). This is a type of anxiety disorder that is sometimes caused by a specific event that somehow stays impressed on a persons' mind. If left untreated, this problem could get worse causing persistent fear, agitation and depression. (See my Newsletter, What Is PTSD?).
Whether the trauma was caused by sexual abuse, physical attack or emotional abuse I can help. Using Rapid Resolution Therapy, some real relief from unwanted symptoms can be had relatively quickly.
Depending on the type of PTSD you have, treatment could be brief and effective. Therapy may consist of clinical hypnosis, EMDR, Rapid Resolution Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). If you are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD, please call me for a free confidential telephone consultation.
