Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental illness caused by exposure to highly distressing events. Flashbacks of such events and symptoms including hypersensitivity to noise are commonly suffered with PTSD, and many people who have served in the armed forces struggle from what was once named ‘shell-shock’, although anyone can be affected by the disorder.
Worryingly, those who suffer from PTSD will often do so in silence, with a reported 70% of people with the disorder not seeking or receiving professional help. The illness can impact hugely on a person’s quality of life and relationships with friends, family and colleagues, so it is important to understand the need for psychological assistance.
Using our knowledge of current clinical evidence, as well as individualised programmes, we can conduct therapy and treatments that help you to think differently about your memories, which may be traumatic. We do this through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, learning to think differently about memories and the level of trauma they may cause.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy, or EMDR as it’s more commonly known as, can help make sense of the traumatic experience through process flashbacks. EMDR and Gestalt therapies place a heightened level of emphasis on personal responsibility and with Biofeedback, the latest tool in dealing PTSD, clients are able to have ECGs. These treatments can paint the picture of the connection between the psychological and physiological. This in turns helps people to manage their symptoms of PTSD, as well as stress, as you go through memories and process them.
Medication is also available for PTSD symptoms and can help relieve depression and anxiety that is present from the trauma.
We know how important it is to deal with traumatic experiences and PTSD in the correct manner as it is a very sensitive area for all. Our expertise in private PTSD treatment allows us to offer personal and flexible therapies and treatments that will aid you in your recovery. Our goal is to help you tackle your trauma and stress effectively and, most importantly, permanently.
Claimont’s PTSD therapy programme is tailored to the exact needs of the individual. The severity of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder dictates the intensity of the treatment programme, which is usually achieved through home visits. In extreme circumstances, we can also provide full-time PTSD private treatment through live-in care.
Contact us today to see how we can help you manage your level of stress and trauma to live a happier and healthier life.
Some people will be exposed to trauma and find they suffer from symptoms which disappear after a few weeks, however, if they continue, it may be that the mind is affected by PTSD. Quite often people will notice symptoms begin within three months of the trauma, however, they can develop up to a year later. Symptoms differ from person to person and can affect children differently. Listed below are some of the commonly experienced signs of PTSD in adults:
