PTSD Counselling

PTSD Counselling Services in Wolverhampton, West Midlands

PTSD is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events that seem to persist long after the event has elapsed (sometime years).

The type of events that can cause PTSD include:

  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Sexual Assaults
  • Being Robbed or Mugged
  • Violence Against Yourself
  • Witnessing Death (violent death)
  • Military Combat Experiences – used to be called “shell-shock”
  • Experiencing Natural Disasters – Earthquakes, Major Floods etc.

PTSD can develop immediately following a disturbing event, or it can occur weeks, months or even years later.

PTSD is estimated to affect about 1 in every 3 people who have a traumatic experience, but it’s not clear exactly why some people develop the condition and others don’t, although this may be due to how “resilient” a person is to negative events in general.

Symptoms of PTSD

Someone with PTSD will often re-experience the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks, and may also experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt (often “survivors guilt”)

They may also develop Sleep Disorders, such as insomnia, and find concentrating difficult.

These symptoms are often severe and persistent enough to have a significant impact on the person’s day-to-day life.

PTSD Pathology

PTSD, in common with many other problems and conditions, is often made worse by “unhelpful thinking” traits or “distorted” belief systems. (The way we perceive the World around us).

The limiting beliefs associated with PTSD may have been created by the actual traumatic experience that may have been “blown out of proportion” or indeed may be the result of “imagined experiences” which can lead to the same outcome – the experience of Anxiety related symptoms.

If we can learn how to manage these limiting beliefs or cognitive distortions using the tools and techniques contained in therapies such as the Thrive Programme or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, then we can also learn how to control the emotional experiences that we have – ie. manage the symptoms.

It is also possible that people suffering from PTSD may have some additional emotional or childhood trauma problems that are indirectly related to the problem itself but still create Anxiety and Stress which make the symptoms worse.

In these cases, as it is may be more difficult to identify the distorted thinking or limiting beliefs associated with PTSD itself and therefore following a course of Psycho-dynamic Therapy may be more beneficial.

Therapy for PTSD

PTSD also responds very well to Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) that can help to “unlock” distressing memories that give rise to the symptoms.

Dr. Justina Somal offers EMDR at TranceForm.

In general, PTSD related conditions respond well to therapy.
