Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a condition which evolves after someone has been in or has witnessed a near death situation. This can include car accidents, rape, crime, violence amongst others.

People who suffer from PTSD find themselves feeling highly anxious much of the time. This includes symptoms of heart palpitations; butterflies in the stomach; nausea; and dizziness. PTSD sufferers can also feel very depressed. Often sufferers prevent themselves from going to places which remind them of or which are associated with the traumatic event. This can cause sufferers to feel cut off from their usual activities prior to the trauma. Their mind seems to be on “red alert” in which they feel that the trauma could re-occur at any time.

Twenty20 Psychology offers several therapies which are helpful in treating PTSD.
