Who does a person go to for help with PTSD?

You should go to a psychotherapist who specializes in PTSD or trauma. I find that Mindfulness Therapy really helps my clients overcome the intense emotions that accompany trauma and restore balance again.

Online Therapist for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Many people prefer the privacy of online therapy for working on difficult emotional problems. I provide online therapy via Skype for the treatment of anxiety, depression, addictions and for healing from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, which is particularly good for anxiety and trauma because the central focus is learning how to re-experience your trauma without becoming re-traumatized. There is a core focus of investigating the structure of the inner imagery of both the event (injury, rape, natural disaster, illness, substantial loss, death of a loved one, significant life-changing event, etc) and the associated emotions themselves, which also exist as imagery in the mind. Imagery is how the mind associates emotional energy with a memory, thought or belief. Change the imagery and you change the emotion…

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist. I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy for the treatment of anxiety and for the treatment of depression and addictions, and also for working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Mindfulness Therapy is a more advanced form of cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, that helps you work with the underlying structure of your trauma, the emotional trauma that is creating your symptoms. Whatever the source of that trauma, it has an underlying structure, and that structure is in the form of imagery. We literally create an internal picture both of the traumatic event, and also of the associated emotions that were activated by that traumatic event.

So, whatever the source, whether it’s a disaster, or whether it’s the result of military activity, or the trauma experienced by medical personnel, fire-fighter, or witnessing a disaster…There are many cause of trauma, some of which are well known and others are less well known. But, the characteristic of all trauma is that it represents an experience that was overwhelming and that the mind was not able to process, was not able to resolve and integrate into the general memory. So, it remains, essentially, stuck. It remains stuck in the form of an internal image or set of images that are resistant to change. Those images persist, and a very import ant part of Mindfulness Therapy for PTSD is seeing these images, which become clearer when we start to explore them with mindfulness, with this quality of conscious awareness where we become an observer, observing this internal structure of the emotion itself.

This process is very effective, indeed, and many people will see quite substantial changes after relatively few sessions. The reason why it is so effective is simply because we are exploring the underlying cause, that imagery, rather than just treating symptoms with medications or conventional talk therapy.

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist. I provide online mindfulness therapy for anxiety, online therapy for depression, for stress and for addictions. I also provide online therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

So, what is PTSD? Well, basically it is the inability of the mind to process a traumatic event. A trauma is defined as an even that has extreme sensory and emotional components that the mind is simply not able to process, so, that memory and associated emotions around that memory become stuck. And that’s why a person suffering from PTSD will constantly re-live that memory in the form of flash-backs or recurring memories or intrusive thoughts and other forms of reactivity of the mind.

Essentially, the mind is trying to heal that trauma and that’s why it reoccurs, but the mind is stuck, it does not know how to do that.

So, during Mindfulness Therapy, which is my specialty, we work on changing the underlying structure of that memory and the traumatic emotions associated with that memory. We look at the way we see the memory and emotions internally, because that is what needs to change – our internal picture. Imagery is the natural language of emotion and each emotion that we experience has it’s own individual imagery structure inside – how we see it internally.

During Mindfulness Therapy sessions we look very closely at this imagery to see how it works. Often, we find there are certain themes. For example, the imagery is too large, too close and it has very vivid or intense color. These properties are what actually produce the emotional distress, the anxiety, the terror, not the actual historical event itself. It’s how we see that picture internally.

When we bring mindfulness to this internal picture, we begin to see the structure and we can begin to change that structure, we begin to discover ways of making the imagery smaller, moving it further away, changing it’s color, and other things that we can change consciously that actually have the effect of defusing and resolving the emotional trauma.

So, this is one central piece of Mindfulness Therapy – actually chaining the internal imagery of the trauma. Change the imagery, you change the emotional intensity and eventually that traumatic memory is able to resolve itself and become integrated into our general memory. We stop experiencing those recurring symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
