PTSD - Freedom from trauma
Updated: Jun 12
PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is most often associated with Military or Service Personnel who have seen combat. However, it is not actually a disorder. It is actually a reaction to emotional trauma and therefore not restricted to those who have been in the services.
Did you know that the symptoms of emotional trauma include:
Insomnia, nightmares, night terrors, sleep paralysis and phobias
Anxiety, depression, hyper-vigilance, withdrawal and inability to rationalise
Pain, seizures, paralysis
Alcohol, drug and substance abuse
Flashbacks, dissocation, intrusive memories and psychosis.
Would you agree that among this list there are symptoms that many of us seem to suffer from these days? Anxiety and depression seem to be increasing, certainly among the many clients I work with. Of course, not everyone has a history of emotional trauma and some people have very real environmental challenges around. For others though there may be overwhelming issues within their timeline.
The symptoms are our flags, our clues that are pointing us to look at what has been overlooked or hidden away. Perhaps at the time of the wounding, we had not enough resources with which to process it and our system very cleverly packs it away in the basement so that we can carry on.
However, it may be that many years later, we experience the "final straw" and somehow seem to get totally overwhelmed and feel that we can't go on any more.
Key predispositions include neglect, abandonment, rejection, difficult or premature birth, parental break-up when young, mother's post natal depression, alcoholic parents, childhood illness, asthma, abuse, boarding school at a young age.
Having studied with very experienced tutors who have themselves treated hundreds of cases of PTSD, I am so pleased to now understand that using a tried and tested protocol, it is highly possible to help people to resolve the root cause and move forward to live a full, healthy and satisfying life.
Are you ready to have freedom from trauma?
I hope that this information will find its way to whoever needs this help today.
