What is PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is one type of mental health condition that directly follows trauma (and is an anxiety-related disorder). However, you may also develop other forms of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or other mental health conditions, in addition to PTSD/post-traumatic stress disorder.
Complex Post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) trauma is multiple traumatic events layered on top of one another, which can cause intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings, anxiety, and memories, long after the trauma ends. Those thoughts and emotions ultimately disrupt your ability to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
When (single or repeated) events occur that make us feel extremely frightened, threatened, or distressed we may end up developing an emotional or psychological wound due to PTSD or CPTSD.
Counseling/Therapy for PTSD/CPTSD
Some people/patients may be able to move beyond this experience with the help of friends, family, and an extensive support network. However, many people do not have the resources to do so and end up feeling very alone. You don’t have to suffer with PTSD! There is treatment.
PTSD/post traumatic stress disorder can feel debilitating and overwhelming. Our Austin, TX trauma therapist can help. We can be a resource and provide other resources and counseling/therapy treatment information that you may need. Our counseling/therapy goal is to help you reach your goals!
HOW CAN TRAUMA/PTSD AFFECT YOU?
Trauma can lead to an increasing inability to cope, function in important various areas of daily living, or maintain regular routines. Often trauma victims feel that no one can understand what they went through and the suffering they experience which can cause them to withdraw from loved ones.
Conversely, loved ones may realize that something is wrong with their loved one and want to help but feel confused, rejected, and unsure of what they can do to help. At Austin Trauma Therapy Center, our trauma counselors are here to help guide you through a difficult time!
