At Lovett Psychology, I offer PTSD Counselling to adults who need support after a traumatic event, or series of events. With extensive experience in trauma, I can assess, diagnose, and treat a range of trauma-related conditions.
My goal is to provide you with skills and strategies to help you reduce symptoms and cope better with your day to day life, as well as face the challenges that come your way in the future. No matter how hard or overwhelming your issues may feel, there are many ways to improve your quality of life and reduce the impact of traumatic experiences.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a condition that can develop after a traumatic event/s. Symptoms of PTSD include:
reliving the traumatic event
being on-edge or extremely wound up (flight-or-fight response)
avoiding reminders of the event
feeling numb emotionally.
People suffering from PTSD can also experience other mental health problems at the same time, including anxiety and depression.
When to seek PTSD Counselling?
If you have experienced a traumatic event, or a series of severely distressing events, and are having difficulty coping, PTSD Counselling can help you. The impact of a traumatic event can strike days, weeks, or even years after the event itself and have an ongoing effect on you.
If you are having difficulty with the after-effects of a traumatic event or time in your life, fill in the online appointment form to the right to arrange a time to meet.
