Trauma Counselling & Therapy Salisbury & Wiltshire | Then Change
Counselling is often sought out to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but it is important to note that not all trauma issues will develop into PTSD. PTSD is also most commonly associated with military or police service, leading to some thinking they can’t have the condition because they’ve not worked in either environment – this is incorrect as any traumatic event could lead to PTSD.
Psychological trauma is the response of the mind and nervous system when dealing with experiences that are so overwhelmingly frightening and life threatening that one can’t come to terms with them. As a result symptoms develop at a level that may interfere with normal functioning, with anxiety and trauma flashbacks sometimes being caused by the simplest of things.
Although trauma issues typically manifest as PTSD, these trauma’s are not always as severe, but should still be addressed. Trauma can lead, for example, to later life phobias (say, a fear of spiders as a result of a childhood prank).
