PTSD is a severe anxiety disorder which can come about as a consequence of exposure to or experience of of a traumatic event/s, which can result in a severe psychological trauma.
Often a person's response to such an event or events can feel utterly overwhelming and we may feel powerless to help ourselves. PTSD can manifest itself in a variety of different ways such as a reliving of experiences through flashbacks, nightmares or a feeling of hypervigilance amongst other affected areas of functioning, just to name a few.You may find you are experiencing difficulties in your close relationships and/or sexual and everyday life. You may feel depressed and worthless or consumed by fear.
Cognitive therapy can be highly successful in the treatment of PTSD by helping clients to confront what terrorises and paralyses them. Avoidance of our fears will often serve to feed them. Our attempts to try and block our thoughts and feelings out can help us only in the short term but ultimately compound the problem for ourselves later on.
