Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
There are 4 main types of difficulties that an individual who is suffering with PTSD will be struggling with:
Re-living the traumatic event – The person relives the event through unwanted and recurring memories, often in the form of vivid images and nightmares. There may be intense emotional or physical reactions, such as sweating, heart palpitations or panic when reminded of the event. (Flash backs)
Being overly alert or wound up – The person experiences sleeping difficulties, irritability and lack of concentration, becoming easily startled and constantly on the lookout for signs of danger.
Avoiding reminders of the event – The person deliberately avoids activities, places, people, thoughts or feelings associated with the event because they bring back painful memories.
Feeling emotionally numb – The person loses interest in day-to-day activities, feels cut off and detached from friends and family, or feels emotionally flat and numb.
If you're struggling with any of these difficulties or if you're looking to discuss a past trauma or event, then just give Amanda a call today to organise your next Counselling session. No matter your age or the issue your struggling with, a professional session with Amanda can help you to overcome past hurt and live a more fulfilled life.
