Trauma and PTSD

While Wendy is adept at offering counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of issues and conditions, she has a particular expertise helping those suffering from PTSD, or any other forms of emotional trauma.

Sometimes you can’t get over things on your own – and it’s not a sign of weakness, it just means it’s time to speak to someone with the skills, experience and empathy to help you turn your life around.

Psychological & Emotional Trauma

Particular events or periods in life can cause extreme reactions, whether you’re struggling to shake off the effects of a past event, or are continually exposed to situations that cause stress, fear or anxiety. These emotional and psychological effects can even manifest physically – leaving you tired, on-edge and unwell. Often it can be beneficial to speak to someone who understands your situation, and can advise you on how to overcome it. That’s where counselling and psychotherapy can assist.

Trauma might come about because of a range of events, such as physical, sexual or childhood abuse. If your response to these events is particularly severe, then you might develop PTSD, so it’s important to talk things through in a safe and understanding environment. Wendy’s treatment methods focus on changing your thinking, emotions and behaviour, and helping you improve your mindset.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post Traumatic stress disorder, commonly known as PTSD, is a condition that can occur after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, for example an accident, abuse, assault or even combat situations (see a more detailed description in the Conditions section).

Feelings of fear, anger and sadness are common after such events, but normally they will pass. If you’re still suffering from these negative thoughts and emotions several weeks later, you may well have PTSD, and it’s important that you seek help from an experienced psychotherapist.
