seeing a counsellor psychotherapist or coach

Time to think about seeing a counsellor, psychotherapist or coach?

I recently wrote an article for Morning Lazziness where I explored the idea of when we should think about seeing a counsellor, psychotherapist or coach.  I have written about this before but it is a question that is being asked more and more.  Many also do not understand the difference (if there is one!) between a counsellor, psychotherapist or coach.

We all have moments when life throws us a problem or difficulty that unsettles us.  For some, we are able to roll with it muddle our way through it.  But some of us need a helping hand.  This does not mean that we are mentally ill.  It simply means that life has thrown a curve ball and we were not quite ready for it.  We might need a bit of a helping hand to get back on track. We might be in need of a tweak, or some guidance just to get through a particular moment in our lives.

healing the emotional wounds of traumatic events, rewind technique

Counselling can help you overcome the emotional effects of trauma

All therapists I know have had clients who have suffered a debilitating traumatic event.  Some of these clients have developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  For some of these clients, the trauma has been endured for years.  Those who have lived in an abusive household, for example, can develop what is called complex PTSD. Counselling that focuses on healing the emotional and psychological wounds of traumatic events can be very effective.  As a Human Givens therapist, I use a technique called The Rewind.  I recently wrote an article for Welldoing.org explaining the essence of the technique.  You can read it here.

Trauma can be debilitating and exhausting.  It can also have profoundly negative impacts on our personal lives.  Trauma can leave us unable to form meaningful relationships.  However, it does not have to be a life sentence.  The Rewind is simple, yet powerful. It can be highly effective after one session. It is also highly effective for those who have developed phobias.  A phobia is often related to a specific event.  The Rewind can deal with that event.

If you would like to learn more about healing the emotional and psychological wounds of traumatic events, click here to read the blog. You can read more about the technique here. It is a safe technique that can be very powerful.

Post traumatic stress disorder PTSD understanding and recovery and treatment

Towards a better understanding of PTSD

If you are a loved one is struggling to understand or recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I can highly recommend you read this book.

Rosalind Townsend is a psychotherapist with a wealth of experience in helping those who have had to deal with trauma.  We used to think that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was something that only those in the military would have to deal with and it was first called “Shell Shock”.  Now, the definition is much more realistic and anyone who has experienced a major traumatic event such as rape, a terrorist attack, being mugged or living in an abusive relationship can fit the criteria
