Santa Rosa PTSD Treatment -
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD, was first widely recognized in War Veterans in the 1800's. In fact, while many of of the worst cases of PTSD are a result of experiencing life-threatening situations during war, the same symptoms are often experienced by victims of violence, survivors of serious accidents or natural disasters, those who have witnessed deaths or violent acts towards others, and survivors of child abuse, torture or rape.
Symptoms of PTSD
Feel emotionally numb (especially in relation to people with whom you used to be close)
Loss of interest in things you used to enjoy
Trouble feeling affectionate
Aggressive impulses/Agitated mood
Some people may become violent when triggered
Avoidance of situations that remind you of the original incident
Symptoms worsened on anniversary of the original incident
Repeatedly relive the trauma in your thoughts during the day (flashbacks)
Insomnia or nightmares at night
Other possible symptoms and related issues may include depression, alcohol or drug abuse or other addictions, personality changes, hopelessness, paranoia, restlessness, fear, inability to focus, dissociation, and severe anxiety.
What are Flashbacks?
Flashbacks may consist of images, sounds, smells, or feelings, and are often triggered by ordinary occurrences, such as a door slamming, the tone of a person's voice, or a car backfiring on the street. Anything related to the original trauma may be a trigger, and these triggers may not always be in your conscious awareness.
A person having an intense flashback may lose touch with reality and believe that the traumatic incident is happening all over again. This can be terrifying and debilitating.
Often those suffering from PTSD will avoid triggering situations, such as crowded places, or driving, and may end up becoming very isolated and limited as a result.
Those with PTSD are also more likely to abuse alcohol and other drugs as a way to try to cope with the intense anxiety and overwhelming fear that they experience. Substance use is only a short term relief, and will actually worsen the symptoms of PTSD and anxiety. Some drugs may actually increase emotional instability and cause further distortions of reality, making treatment more difficult.
When do Symptoms First Appear?
Symptoms of PTSD often don't show up until several months after the original traumatic experience. For some people it may not occur until years after the event.
Symptoms that last for more than one month meet the official criteria for PTSD.
Chronic PTSD sufferers often become depressed due to the stress, fear and isolation that they experience day after day.
Santa Rosa PTSD Treatment offers fast and effective therapy without the need for expensive, painful, long-term treatment.
Even severe and chronic PTSD symptoms can be eliminated.
I primary use EFT - a simple and easy to learn method of self-applied tapping on acupressure points on your own upper body while focusing on the PTSD symptom (thought, feeling or memory).
I also may at times use EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is widely recognized as one of the most effective and scientifically proven methods for relieving PTSD symptoms. Since I began using EFT however, I've experienced faster and easier results than with EMDR. Some of my clients have attempted to treat their chronic symptoms with EMDR and found it to be too emotionally overwhelming, yet discovered EFT to be virtually painless and far more effective, in less time.
"By using different set-up phrases I have had more success in obtaining a more focused and relaxed mental state through EFT than any other relaxation method I’ve tried. I was a able to have long-term relief from a fierce, daily hatred of someone, after only one session of tapping with Ben... I feel a great peace inside after only a few brief rounds of tapping.
I’ve read Ben’s book and listened to the audio book. I especially like the chapter about re-writing your childhood, and I have tapped away many old negative experiences and drawn a positive outcome and mental picture, where before there was only fear, sorrow and regret.
I’m looking forward to more sessions with Ben, and I would recommend Ben’s EFT methods to anyone seeking to squash old fears, regrets or negative past experiences regardless of how intense the experience."
