Trauma/PTSD Therapy

What is Trauma Counselling & therapy?

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that  affects approximately 7.7 million American adults ages 18 and older, or about 3.5% of the adult population at any given time. Anyone can get PTSD at any age, including first responders, survivors of physical/sexual/emotional abuse,  accidents, disasters, and many other serious events perceived as dangerous.

It is natural for a person who experiences or witnesses a traumatic event to feel afraid and react in a “fight or flight” manner.  Their body responds to fear by preparing to defentd against ,or avoid a perceived danger.  But in PTSD, the natural healthy reaction is changed or damaged and so individuals may feel stressed or frightened even when they’re no longer in danger.

My treatment plant targets past experience, identifies current triggers and prepares clients agains future potential challenges. The client will feel a release from presenting symptoms, a decreased flashback of disturbing memory, improved self-esteem, and elimination of physical symptoms such as racing heart, etc.
