Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious stress-related and trauma disorder caused by severe injuries, assault, or other traumatic events. While typically associated with those who’ve served in the military, anyone can be diagnosed with PTSD no matter their career choice or age. At Life Insight, we dedicate our energy to providing clients with the treatment options needed to overcome the effects of PTSD and live a happy, fulfilling life. Contact our Hinsdale office today to schedule an appointment.
After witnessing or experiencing a traumatic incident, it is normal for your body to have a stressful reaction. However, what is not normal and should be addressed is if this reaction begins to interfere with your day-to-day life and last longer than three months. Symptoms that are particularly worrisome and are large indicators that is it time to seek PTSD treatment near you include:
It’s important to note that symptoms of PTSD can intensify the longer they are left untreated. It is best to seek out treatment as soon as symptoms begin to develop. If not, sufferers will likely feel the above more intensely and/or develop more severe symptoms.
As therapists, our job is to help clients overcome their struggles by providing them with the support and resources they need to face the world head-on. Life Insight’s PTSD therapists play a large role in their client’s management of the disorder. To effectively treat clients, therapists go into PTSD treatment with three common goals:
Through talk therapy, Life Insight’s counselors dive deep into their patient’s thinking patterns and help identify triggering stimuli that prevent them from healing and keeping them stuck in their negative habits. One significant and practical way our therapists can help patients overcome their symptoms of PTSD is through exposure therapy. During exposure therapy, triggering stimuli is safely and gradually introduced to the patient in a way that will help them face the adverse reactions that occur and learn how to cope with the emotions as they happen.
If you were impacted by a traumatic event that you have trouble processing, please seek PTSD treatment near you. At LIfe Insight, our compassionate and experienced PTSD counselors are here to provide you a safe space to discuss your experiences and discover healthy coping mechanisms that will help you overcome your struggles. Call our Hinsdale office today, or send us a message. We are here to help you know you are never alone in your struggles.
