Meet Our Team Of PTSD Psychiatrists

Overview

There are various types of therapies that counsellors can use to help the person with PTSD recover from their trauma. These include –
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In this therapy, the therapist helps the person identify the toxic feelings and thoughts that they have regarding the traumatic event while helping them cope with them.
Virtual Reality Treatment. In this treatment approach, the person is exposed to a simulation that triggers their symptoms of PTSD. The therapist then helps the person to process and cope with their triggers in order to overcome them.
Exposure Therapy. In this therapy approach, the person is encouraged to repeatedly talk about their experience of the traumatic event which decreases the feelings of overwhelm and fear associated with the event.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is an effective therapy approach that helps relieve the distress of the person with PTSD associated with the traumatic event.

How effective is Counselling for PTSD?

Counselling is effective in helping the individual with PTSD face their fears, overcome negative thoughts and feelings associated with the trauma, and learn valuable skills that helps them manage any distress.

How does Counselling for PTSD work?

Counselling can help the individual with PTSD identify the distressing thoughts and feelings related to the traumatic event they had directly or indirectly experienced and help them replace them with better thoughts that reduce the emotional distress. A counsellor may also help equip the individual with skills to cope with their distress. A counsellor can help relieve the individual of the blame, shame, guilt, anger and other such negative emotions that they may be carrying forward by helping distinguish facts from assumptions and encouraging them to think more helpful thoughts.

How many numbers of sessions are required?

The number of sessions differs for each individual depending on their response to the treatment sessions.
