Trauma and PTSD Treatment

Treating Trauma and PTSD

Psychotherapy Services BWRT Logo Registered Practitioner Eternal Balance
Trauma and PTSD Treatment using Psychotherapy and counselling, can help us talk through and better understand how we are feeling and our overall state of mental health and well-being. We all experience many different situations in our everyday lives. Our reactions to these situations can make us feel like we are on a roller-coaster of emotions. Sometimes, we can feel great and other times not so great. Being restricted by a fear or phobia, or overwhelmed by anger and frustration are just some of the causes that get us down. Other times, it can feel like we are only just keeping our head above water and trying to survive day-to-day. For many of us when our feelings becoming overwhelming we tend to react in undesirable ways. Unfortunately, in such instances our unintentional behaviours are often towards the ones we love most.

The underlying cause of our reactions is an outcome of how our minds work. Our minds relate stimuli from the environment to common themes from our past. As a result, our minds create an automatic response to situations and events. This response is so fast, we can get caught in the middle of a reaction before we can comprehend what is happening. Allowing these unwanted reactions to occur can serve to reinforce undesired behaviours. , this creates a conditioned response and negative belief system within ourselves. Talking with a therapist can help bottling up of destructive negative emotions like sadness, anger and frustration, and release unwanted negative emotions. a

Trauma Counselling using Psychotherapy

Our Trauma counselling also makes use of Psychotherapy and BWRT®. When using BWRT for Trauma Counselling, you use your own thoughts to create change. Your therapist does not need to be aware of these thoughts. In essence, BWRT® allows you to create change from within, rather than from what the therapist says or does. Counselling Sessions using BWRT® Psychotherapy is a powerful process of therapeutic intervention in the way we feel and react. Moreover, it is a great way of rewiring the brain. As a result, it allows you to have healthier and more desired responses to situations and life events.

More about BWRT® Psychotherapy

‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. Like many other modern therapies, it allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead
