PTSD - Trauma Release Therapy
PTSD can seem unstoppable - but the good news is that it can be stopped!
PTSD is where continuing to run the patterns and story of the trauma is what causes the trauma to become more embedded and feel unstoppable.
The truth of the brain and the healthier ways of dealing with trauma is that a traumatic event will often serve as a lesson about what is dangerous - it alerts and informs us to be more careful in the future and to avoid future risks.
PTSD is where the brain is consistently flooded by the replaying of a traumatic event(s) even when the event or the danger from that event is long gone.
This consistent flooding of thoughts by the reliving or telling of the traumatic even keeps the brain in a high stage of alertness - even when there is no risk or no danger in the moments of revisiting and reliving that event.
If you get flooded by hormones and find you heart and mind racing just by thinking about something, just imagine how the constant thinking about that something starts to become a pattern of thinking and behaviours that is then known as PTSD.
In the name of the condition itself is part of the answer.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - POST means PAST - this is something that is brought into the now by recurring thought patterns - that is affecting your experience of NOW.

What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition in which people report experiencing anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, &/or repetitive, intrusive thoughts about q traumatic event or events that they witnessed or experienced
According to the National Center for PTSD (USA), approximately 60% of men and 50% of women experience trauma at least once in their lifetime.
The amount of people who go on to develop PTSD from those traumas is relatively small – only 7 to 8 percent.
However affected individuals report that PTSD is a misunderstood, difficult condition that severely interferes with the quality of their lives.
If you or someone you love has experienced trauma, or is currently suffering from PTSD, it’s important to know how it affects an individual and how it develops - and even more importantly how and where to get help!
1. Impact or “Emergency” Stage
This phase occurs immediately after the traumatic event. At this point, the affected individual may be struggling to come to terms with the shock of what happened.
He or she may exhibit traits of hypervigilant, anxiety & possibly even be struggling with misplaced guilt.
it is important to note that at this stage that when treated by a mental health professional, the presentation of PTSD can change and improve and recovery can be rapid when addressed correctly.
2. Denial Stage
Whilst not everybody experiences denial when dealing with PTSD recovery.
Some individuals who may report they continue to experience strong feelings brought on by memories of the traumatic event. Some may attempt, either consciously or unconsciously, to try to avoid difficult emotions. It is important to note that those who are prone to using alcohol or other substances may be especially vulnerable to self created 'numbing' behavior at this stage.
It is crucial at this point to get help and treatment to prevent other unwanted behaviours to establish themselves in an unhealthy 'coping strategy' that will lead to even more difficult & entrenched problems in the future.
3. Short-term Recovery Stage
During this phase, there are attempts to create immediate solutions to problems arising that are addressed.
The individual with PTSD will attempt to adjust to everyday life and return to a sense of normalcy. This stage can go both ways: individuals will either continue to accept help from others or they will become disillusioned and somewhat cynical. At this stage, nightmares and intrusive thoughts may continue and make everyday life difficult.
It is important to the full recovery and prevention of PTSD that the client get professional assistance, to get help and treatment to prevent the patterns of intrusive thinking processes and nightmares (inc flashbacks) .
4. Long-term Recovery Stage
As the name suggests, the individual continues to deal with the after-effects of their trauma, such as anxiety and nightmares. However, with treatment, these negative symptoms can be reduced and eventually completely eliminated.
With guidance and support from professionals, family, and friends, people with PTSD can expect to return to a calmer, fuller life - permanently.
Mental health concerns, whilst often difficult to discuss with loved ones and friends is a healthy supportive process!

The sooner you get treatment - the faster you can claim bak your life!
