Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

 

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder which may develop following exposure to any one of a variety of traumatic events that involve actual or threatened death, or serious injury.

Posttraumatic stress disorder is a serious potentially debilitating condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist incident, sudden death of a loved one, war, violent personal assault such as rape, or other life-threatening events. PTSD is sometimes found in ex-military personnel who have been involved in conflict situations.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is usually a continuation of the usual acute response to stress and might alter somewhat over time just as grief does. When the normal reaction to severe trauma lasts longer than a month and is particularly severe, then it is called post-traumatic stress disorder. Sufferers feel tense, irritable, spaced out, startle easily, cannot sleep, have heightened awareness and have nightmares and flashbacks about the trauma. Depression and a sense of numbing are frequent, as is grief from any loss associated with the trauma. Patients avoid places, people, thoughts and other reminders of what happened. PTSD often occurs with depression, substance abuse, or other anxiety disorders like panic attacks.

It is common to people who have experienced traumatic events to experience flashbacks. Women are twice as likely to develop posttraumatic stress disorder as men, and children can also develop it. Occasionally there is a delay of up to several years between the time of the trauma and the start of the distress. The more intense and prolonged the trauma, the worse the disorder. People who have had previous anxiety or depressive problems are likely to suffer more.

 

 

 

Psychotherapy

 

Many sufferers have experienced success with the combination of hypnotherapy with other therapeutic techniques. The aim of hypnotherapy is to unlock stored emotion so that the trauma can be revisited and explored from a different perspective.

 

 

 

Comorbidity

 

Frequent comorbid diagnoses are affective disorders (major depression, dysthymia), other anxiety disorders like (GAD, panic disorder, specific phobia, social phobia, agoraphobia, substance abuse (alcohol and other drugs), conduct disorder and somatization.

Self-hypnosis

 

Self-hypnosis has helped many patients with stress. Many sufferers usually report very quickly a noticeable improvement. Pondering, fears, mental and physical tension can be additionally reduced by self-hypnosis. Therefore, I teach my patients self-hypnosis to supplement the hypnosis sessions.

After positive trance experiences have been made with my support, self-hypnosis can be learned very quickly. This helps them to progress self-determined outside the therapy. It accelerates the process, deepens and consolidates the achievements. This also promotes the independence of the clients. A good therapist will be superfluous as soon as possible. Self-hypnosis is an excellent self-help method that can be used beyond the actual topic.
