Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks, and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt.
Can PTSD be treated?
PTSD can be successfully treated, even if your symptoms appear sometime after the initial traumatic event. The type of treatment offered depends on the severity of your symptoms and how soon they have appeared after the traumatic event, the treatment will be discussed with you after the initial consultation.
If you think you may be struggling with the symptoms of PTSD, it’s important to seek help and manage the condition.
When does PTSD occur?
You may experience symptoms of PTSD immediately after the distressing event has occurred, although many people have a delay in onset of symptoms for months or even years. When these symptoms do occur, they may happen constantly, and severely affect your ability to function most days, although some people with the condition can go extensive amounts of time without noticing any issues, before symptoms ultimately flare-up.
For many people, the symptoms lead to depression, panic attacks and generalised anxiety. People can also withdraw from work and social activities, sensing feeling of loss and lack of motivation.
Can post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) counselling help?
PTSD therapy will help you do just that while also looking at the surrounding issues, worries and fears. While we may not be able to do anything about the event itself we can help you find your way through it and deal with the issues experienced.
