Trauma and PTSD

Trauma and PTSD

Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are mental health issues that can arise after experiencing a traumatic event. Trauma encompasses a range of distressing experiences, such as natural disasters, car accidents, physical or sexual assault, military combat, or other life-threatening situations.

PTSD is a severe and long-lasting anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to a traumatic event. Individuals with PTSD often experience persistent and intrusive thoughts or memories about the event, intense distress when reminded of the incident, and avoidance of anything associated with it. Physical symptoms such as sleep disturbances, irritability, or feelings of detachment may also occur.

Daily activities, relationships, and work performance can be negatively affected by PTSD. In some instances, PTSD can lead to depression, substance abuse, or other mental health issues.

Treatment for trauma and PTSD generally involves therapy, medication, or a combination of both. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a commonly used therapeutic approach that helps individuals with PTSD manage their symptoms and reduce distress. Other treatments, including exposure therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and group therapy, may also be effective.

If you or someone you know is struggling with trauma or PTSD, seeking professional help is essential. With appropriate treatment and support, individuals with PTSD can recover and lead fulfilling lives.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
