What’s PTSD?

PTSD stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is a mental health condition that can develop in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. Traumatic events that can lead to PTSD may include things like war, sexual or physical assault, natural disasters, serious accidents, or the sudden loss of a loved one. Trauma is a term that refers to a severe or emotionally distressing experience, such as a natural disaster, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or car accident. Trauma can have a profound impact on a person’s mental health and well-being and can lead to a variety of physical and emotional symptoms.

Some common symptoms of PTSD include:

– Intrusive thoughts or memories of the traumatic event

– Nightmares or flashbacks

– Difficulty sleeping or concentrating

– Irritability or outbursts of anger

– Difficulty trusting others

– Emotional numbing or detachment

– Difficulty experiencing positive emotions

People who have experienced trauma may also develop mental health conditions such as depression, or anxiety. It’s important for individuals who have experienced PTSD to seek support and treatment, which may include therapy, medication, or a combination of both.

How we can help?

Despite all these debilitating symptoms that can take away from your ability to work, to socialize or to perform in school, we have solutions such as Neurofeedback to help you.

Besides Neurofeedback, We have some services such as:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This is a type of therapy that helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to their distress. It can be particularly useful in helping people who have experienced PTSD to process their experiences and develop coping strategies.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): This is a type of therapy that involves the use of eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation to help people process traumatic memories and reduce their negative impact.
