Manage Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

According to the NHS website, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events.

Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks, and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt.

They may also have problems sleeping, 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.

Any situation that a person finds traumatic can cause PTSD.

These can include:

  • Serious road accidents

  • Violent personal assaults, such as sexual assault, mugging or robbery

  • Serious health problems

  • Childbirth experiences

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

Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective in reducing a person’s level of anxiety, thereby decreasing their symptoms of PTSD.

By gaining intellectual control, they will become more able to see any triggers before they're a problem, giving them the time to make the best decisions in each situation.
