ptsd treatment


I see everything through a 'physiology' lens. As in: how did your nervous system respond and shape itself around a traumatic or stressful event/s? It will then show up as symptoms such as (but not limited to):

  • panic

  • stress

  • lack of energy/motivation

  • exhuastion

  • anger

  • overwhelm

  • hypervigilance

  • nightmares

  • jumpiness

  • depression

  • anxiety

  • rumination

And diagnoses such as:

  • depression

  • anxiety

  • bipolar

  • personality disorders

  • PTSD etc

Normally at the bottom of mental health conditions are trauma and physiological responses that occurred at some stage of one's life, and still showing up in the 'now'.

They tend to fit in with the following categories:

  • Trauma with a capital 'T
    That being a major single event, or multiple, accumulating adverse events.


  • Trauma with a small 't'
    That being anything that has had significant impact - eg loss of a loved one, change in circumstance, an injury


  • Developmental Trauma
    Patterns of behaviour that were developed during childhood and the formative years. Also seen as 'attachment styles'


  • Complex Trauma
    ustained impacts from multiple and accumulating events, mostly from childhood.

Regardless, I work mostly from a Somatic psychotherapy approach (somatic experiencing) and also EMDR, but I also bring, CBT, DBT, skills, strategies and education to heal, resolve and/or manage the stresses that arise from painful and impactful events.

Clients report of their surprise that they no longer feel the traumatic stress in their body. Particularly at the times when they normally would feel triggered into stress, but instead feel peace and are actually able to enjoy the moment.
