Post traumatic stress disorder anxiety

Become accepting, learn to relax and experience light calm......

What is anxiety? An overwhelming sense of fear and worry. Sometimes people with anxiety have physical symptoms such as, tension, sweating and an increased pulse.

Anxiety is a feeling of unease. I feel it, many people I know experience anxiety when faced with stressful situations, for example before an exam or an interview, or during a worrying time such as illness. It's normal to feel anxious when facing something difficult or dangerous.

Anxiety is only considered to be a problem when it is prolonged, severe and is interfering with everyday activities, as in post traumatic stress disorder anxiety.

Post traumatic stress disorder anxiety

Anxiety can also cause or be caused by a range of physical symptoms. These may happen because of the bodies' so-called "fight or flight" response, which is caused by the release of the stress hormone adrenaline.

Physical symptoms of anxiety may include abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, dry mouth, palpitations, tightness or pain in chest, shortness of breath, dizziness, frequent urination, difficulty swallowing, shaking, and ‘panic attacks’ which may have one or more of the above symptoms.

Anxiety is a term that can cover a myriad of symptoms.

Post traumatic stress disorder anxiety is caused by:

· Experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, for example, rape, shooting or car accident.

If the following apply to you, then there is a chance you have post traumatic stress disorder:

· Getting upset repeatedly whilst thinking about a traumatic event

· Experiencing “flashbacks” where you feel as if you are re-living a traumatic experience

· Feeling emotionally numb or on edge.

· Avoiding doing things that remind you of a traumatic event

· Difficulty with sleep,

· Intense irritability and angry outbursts

· Difficulty with concentration

· When surprised; having a startle response that is over-exaggerated.

If you think you may have post traumatic stress disorder then you need to seek professional advice e.g. a qualified doctor.

How to become accepting, learn to relax, experience calm and let go of PTSD anxiety:


Hypnotherapy can relieve PTSD anxiety and can greatly improve your life

Using Hypnotherapy allows you to be in control of your symptoms and helps you to reduce negative thoughts associated with the trauma by allowing you to filter out unwanted negative material such as thoughts and emotions.

Hypnosis can be extremely successful for many many issues; the clients I work with have managed to turn their lives round positively. Hypnosis is just like a really deep state of relaxation where you can work with your unconscious to let go of unwanted issues-I work to help a client find the tools to let go.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) EMDR is a very effective treatment for PTSD, using eye movements which are thought to work by assisting the brain’s information processing system, which is interrupted in times of extreme stress.

Use well qualified accredited therapists.

Whilst waiting for accredited therapy, use 7/11 breathing to feel calm and relaxed which is an uncomplicated easy technique which you can use whenever you feel anxious, negative, low or angry (or any other negative state)!

I give the 7/11 breathing technique to clients, to relax and feel calm, 7/11 breathing stops thoughts.

This is the 7/11 technique:

Breathe in to the count of 7 and then out to the count of 11. Repeat about 10-20 times.

Practice this technique at home for about 10 minutes a day and apply it whenever you need it.
