Help with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Norwich
Coaching to help with Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is caused by “very stressful, frightening or distressing events” (NHS 2018).
Someone experiencing PTSD will often relive the traumatic event through flashbacks and/or nightmares. This can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.
PTSD was initially discovered in war veterans and has had various names in the past like ‘shell shock’. After that, it was thought that only soldiers could develop PTSD. However, as more and more research was conducted it is now widely recognised that anyone who has experienced a ‘trauma’ can develop PTSD.
How Can I Help?
Coaching sessions can help to improve PTSD through helping you to access the information in your subconscious that is causing the symptoms. This information can be accessed without having to tell the story of what happened. Moreover, this can occur without having to relive the experience multiple times. In these sessions you do not even have to reveal the nature and details of the experience. A content free approach means you can keep that information private. My role is to guide you though the process.
Sessions are designed to help you clear the ‘fragmented’, ‘frozen’ pieces that cause flashbacks and nightmares from the subconscious mind. Thus dissolving the emotional charge from the event. Consequently, this clears the nervous system of the chemicals that were associated with the initial sensitising event.
It is common for someone experiencing PTSD to also struggle with conditions such as insomnia, depression, social anxiety and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Please inform me of any co-existing conditions prior to us working together.

Common Symptoms of PTSD
- Re-experiencing the event: The most common symptom of PTSD is the reoccurrence of flashback images or movies from the initial trauma. These are commonly ‘triggered’ by a specific sensory experience, whether that be a sound, a smell or a face. Often these triggers occur outside of the person’s conscious awareness. Flashbacks can be triggered unconsciously meaning you are helpless to prevent them.
- Emotional numbing: This is a coping strategy in which a person isolates or withdraws from social interactions. This partly serves to avoid coming into contact with people, places, smells etc. that may cause the person to relive the experience again through a flashback. Often the emotional pain from the traumatic event can be very severe. Sometimes as a protection mechanism you may stop feeling altogether, and develop a numbness to feelings.
- Hyper arousal: You may feel very anxious, feel irritable and be unable to concentrate. The neurotransmitters and hormones flooding through your nervous system as a result of PTSD make it very difficult to relax and calm down. This may lead to problems sleeping, angry outbursts and difficulty thinking things through.
