PTSD Counselling in Plymouth

There are numerous events that can trigger PTSD. As with many conditions connected to our mental health. Something that one individual may find traumatic another will not, and vice versa. Many individuals do not suffer any PTSD symptoms whatsoever after experiencing a traumatic event. We are all different and we all cope and react to Trauma in a variety of ways.

Trauma symptoms can appear soon after the event, or it may be that you start to develop the symptoms much later sometimes even years afterwards. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSD ) and Trauma Counselling seeks to explore your emotional and physical reactions to the event, and then find ways of helping you to process what has happened to you. Learn to cope with any reactions that you may be having, so that the trauma moves from being a current problem, to a memory.

Please call for more information about my PTSD Counselling in Plymouth, and take that all important first step to good health.
