After you have faced a trauma, you will do the best that you can to cope and recover on your own. However, sometimes the aftermath of a trauma can be very difficult to face on your own. If you are experiencing symptoms of distressing memories, avoidance of stressful situations or triggers, and negative changes in mood and emotional reactions, you may be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is not uncommon – over 5 million Americans may suffer from PTSD throughout the course of a year.

Psychotherapy is the most recommended treatment to assist with recovery from PTSD. It can help you to cope with feelings of anger, guilt, or fear, as well as accompanying depression or anxiety. Therapy techniques such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) have also proven very effective with treatment of PTSD, allowing the patient to reprocess their memories. As each case is unique, each treatment will also be unique, and you should feel comfortable with the plan that is set up for you. If you want to manage your symptoms so that they don’t interfere with your daily life anymore, set up a psychotherapy appointment and begin your journey to recovery.
