PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an anxiety disorder caused by a very stressful, frightening or distressing event(s).  A person can involuntarily and vividly relive the traumatic event through flashbacks, nightmares and images. 

 

Often people will avoid being reminded of the traumatic which can mean avoiding certain people or places that remind them of the trauma.  This can lead to the person becoming isolated and withdrawn, and they may also give up pursuing activities they used to enjoy. 

 

Some symptoms include:

PSYCH-K is excellent for fast relief from the problems caused by PTSD.  It does not involve talking repeatedly about the event.  It takes a few minutes to transform the subconscious minds perception of a stressful event into one of peace and non attachment.  The difference that this makes to a person is that they will:

  1. Think about the event much less often

  2. When they do think about it or about a place or person associated with it they feel okay, able to cope, peaceful and at ease

  3. Avoiding places or people that remind them is no longer at the forefront of their mind

  4. They are less hypervigilant which means they behaviour and thoughts are different, and living is so much less exhausting
