Psychological Counseling/Life Coaching

Your therapist can help you develop stress management skills to help you better handle stressful situations and cope with stress in your life.

All these approaches can help you gain control of lasting fear after a traumatic event. You and your mental health professional can discuss what type of therapy or combination of therapies may best meet your needs. You may try individual therapy, group therapy or both. Group therapy can offer a way to connect with others going through similar experiences.

You are what you do repeatedly. So, your excellence isn’t an act it is a habit.

Taking ownership of your long term mental health is about making life style modifications that compliment your ideal life.

Some types of psychotherapy used in PTSD treatment include:

Cognitive therapy

This type of talk therapy helps you recognize the ways of thinking (cognitive patterns) that are keeping you stuck — for example, negative beliefs about yourself and the risk of traumatic things happening again. For PTSD, cognitive therapy often is used along with exposure therapy.

Exposure therapy

This behavioral therapy helps you safely face both situations and memories that you find frightening so that you can learn to cope with them effectively. Exposure therapy can be particularly helpful for flashbacks and nightmares. One approach uses virtual reality programs that allow you to re-enter the setting in which you experienced trauma.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (emdr)

EMDR combines exposure therapy with a series of guided eye movements that help you process traumatic memories and change how you react to them.
