Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

“I just can’t forget, it’s like an open wound that never heals”.

This is how someone with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) might describe how they feel about a traumatic event that happened to them in the past. This can be anything from a serious road accident, a violent personal assault, military combat or being involved in a terrorist attack to name just a few.

It doesn’t matter how long ago it happened they are still unable to forget and as a result it will impinge on their every day life and they might experience regular panic attacks, flash backs, insomnia, nightmares, anxiety, depression, irritability or even self-destructive behaviour.   People with PTSD can get stuck and are unable to move forward and it can hold them back for many years to come.

Not everyone that has experienced a traumatic event in their life will develop PTSD but it’s estimated to affect 1 in every 3 people and the condition was only officially recognised as a mental health condition in 1980, even though incidences were documented during the First World War when soldiers developed symptoms as a result of the harrowing conditions they experienced in the trenches.

If you have experienced a traumatic event in the past and you feel you might be stuck or it is affecting your every day life please contact me for a friendly chat. I can see you either via Skype or in my consulting room. I am empathetic in my approach and the first consultation takes up to 1.5 hours in a safe environment, combine this with the homeopathic remedy that I will carefully choose to match your symptoms it can be a very powerful form of healing.  My main aim through your treatment will be to help you to move forward.
