P.T.S.D. is a type of Anxiety Disorder which occurs due to an individual experiencing or witnessing a life threatening event.  The symptoms of P.T.S.D. can appear soon after the trauma took place or even months/years later.  Some symptoms of P.T.S.D. include:

  • Re-experiencing the trauma via flashbacks, nightmares, and recollections

  • Avoiding people/places associated with the trauma

  • Having difficulty concentrating or focusing

  • Feeling easily irritated/angry

  • Hyper-vigilance, being overly aware of potential dangers, feeling jumpy

 

When working with you to treat your trauma, I will help you learn to identify the intrusive thoughts/images and to take control of them. We will also work on re-framing your thoughts regarding the trauma which will change your response to it.  In addition, we will practice some relaxation techniques together to help calm the effects of the intrusive thoughts. 

You can take control back and no longer allow the trauma to control you! Contact me        now to set up your first session and see how I can help!
