PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, can affect anybody who has experienced any form of trauma.
The charity PTSDUK estimates that up to 10% of people will experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder at some point in their lifetime.
Whether an accident victim, army veteran, or survivor of abuse, PTSD can develop at any time in life and can cause a range of symptoms – including intrusive thoughts, distressing flashbacks, and feelings of depression.
If you find yourself struggling to cope after experiencing a traumatic event, our team of psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists at Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling can help you to process your trauma through EMDR therapy in Newcastle.
Learn Strategies to Help PTSD Symptoms
There are a number of benefits to therapy for PTSD sufferers, in order to reduce suffering and improve quality of life.
Many people with PTSD experience a range of symptoms that interfere with day to day life and prevent them from engaging properly at home, at work, or in their relationships.
Our experienced therapists will help you explore and work through your difficulties so that you can overcome your trauma and minimise triggers so that you can confidently engage with life again.
EMDR Therapy Accelerates Healing
Specifically designed for those with trauma, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation And Reprocessing) is an evidence-based therapy that helps to reprocess distressing memories in a way that reduces their power over you.
Using a combination of eye movements, tapping and sometimes sounds, EMDR can help your brain move the memory from the emotional part of the brain (the amydala), to the area where processed memories are stored with less emotional reaction (as is what happens with regular memories).
Our EMDR therapists in Newcastle use a series of eye movements, hand taps, and audible tones in order to disrupt your stress response and help you work through your traumatic event safely.
Move Forwards in Life
Although your traumatic experiences may be in the past, PTSD makes it extremely difficult to focus on the present and move forwards.
Often, those with PTSD might experience reliving or difficulty focusing on the present.
By helping to heal the distressing memories and flashbacks with EMDR treatment in Newcastle, you can finally help to re-gain control of your life and look to the future.
