PTSD doesn’t have to be permanent.
How do we eliminate PTSD?
PTSD is ill-named. It is not a disorder and is simply better referred to as PTS. It can happen to anyone although veterans who have served in war zones are the most obvious example. But it can be a simple as being in a car accident.
It can turn as complex pts in people who have had multiple traumatic experiences from childhood
When working with people who have this experience I ask them not to talk about it. This does not help as it reaffirms existing neural pathways. So I work as fast as possible to minimise the period of discomfort which this can entail.
Depending on the individual I will use a technique chosen for a range of skills depending on the circumstances
What are the symptoms of PTSD?
- Vivid flashbacks, reliving the trauma as if it is happening now
- Intense fear, panic and distress when memory is prompted by images, sights, sounds, words, dreams
- Hyper-arousal/extreme alertness, easily startled and on-edge
- Restless sleep
- Nausea, trembling and sweating
- Quick-tempered and over-sensitive
- Aggression and/or unreasonable behaviour towards others
- Self-destructive behaviour
- Substance abuse/alcohol abuse/self-harm
- Avoidance of talking about emotions or feelings
