What is anxiety counselling?
PTSD counselling is a form of therapy that helps individuals who have experienced trauma to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Why is PTSD Counselling important?
If left untreated PTSD may lead to suicide. PTSD is often the result of a near death experience, or trauma which was so terrifying that the sufferer experiences reliving the trauma as though it is happening now, again and again and again. The symptoms of PTSD are hugely distressing and may involve every sense being affected, smell, taste, touch, sight, re-living their experience.
How can PTSD Counselling help?
PTSD Counselling helps to normalise the abnormal, giving the sufferer the opportunity to express, in their own words, what they are feeling, how they are thinking, while being supported by their counsellor, never judged. The effects of PTSD gradually reduce as their sessions offer space and safety to explore feelings they have been unable to express all the while gaining positive feedback, acknowledgement and acceptance from the counsellor. It’s knowing that “It’s okay to feel this way”, “Your feelings and reactions were normal, given the abnormality of the situation you faced”. Often there’s enormous guilt associated with simply surviving, whilst others did not.
Who can benefit from PTSD Counselling?
Anyone who is stuck or trapped with re-experiencing panic attacks, drinking too much, self-harming and other destructive behaviour, always on guard for danger, trouble sleeping/nightmares, unable to concentrate, suicidal ideation, all can be symptoms of PTSD.
