We offer a simple but very effective 3 step process that neutralizes the toxic feelings and lifts the symptoms of PTSD.
Usually delivered over two or three sessions this process activates a persons own natural ability to heal by using deep relaxation, guided use of their memory and of their imagination.
By freeing a person from their PTSD symptoms it is possible to create the opportunity to feel more positively about their situation and to begin enjoying parenthood.
Many parents desperately wish to move on but feel owned by their traumatic birth.
This technique releases the feelings associated with the birth so that it is possible to look back and remember the birth with neutral feelings about it. The birth can still be remembered but it no longer provokes any anxiety.
Parenthood can still be challenging and sometimes those challenges may be the result of the birth itself but everything is much easier to deal with when there is peace and calm (where there was once turmoil and panic).
This therapy is a brief intervention that seeks relief of PTSD symptoms after 2 or 3 sessions in person or by Skype.
Occasionally the process needs to be repeated but in the majority of cases people report a significant diminishing or complete eradication of symptoms and heavy feelings.
If talking about the traumatic birth experience makes you feel uncomfortable there is no need the share what happened to you. You will need to remember it yourself but you can do this without re-telling.
This treatment is equally effective 3 months after the event as it is 3 years or even longer after the event. If PTSD symptoms or heavy feelings are still evident then the treatment is useful in eliminating them. Or if you recognise that some of the unhelpful responses that you have day to day as a result of what happened, then treatment can help.
