TROOPS WITH TRAUMA

"Courage isn't having the strength to go on. 

It is going on when you don't have the strength"

Napoleon Boneparte 

As a former member of the UK armed services, TA or Reservists you can get help if you suffer with PTSD - and you can get it for free. 

You may have experienced any of the following (repeated or singular) episodes of:

  • combat on the battlefield or experiences of terrorism or torture (military)

  • dealing with horrifying criminal issues (police)

  • being present at horrific accident scenes or fires (ambulance and fire services)

  • being bullied in the workplace, stalked or harassed socially, or being the victim of domestic violence

  • an accident (at work, on the road or at home)

  • sexual abuse or rape

  • been involved in a crash (car, plane, boat or rail)

  • trapped in a fire

  • having a heart attack or a serious illness

  • experiencing surgery that failed

  • being the victim of poisoning

  • falling from a great height or almost drowning

 

Symptoms of PTSD can include (but are not limited to):

  • Repeated or recurrent, unwanted memories of the traumatic event

  • Reliving the event as if it were happening again 

  • Nightmares or bad dreams about the traumatic event

  • Emotional distress or physical reactions to something that reminds you of the event

  • Avoiding thinking or speaking about the event

  • Avoiding places, activities or people that remind you of the event

  • Negative thoughts about yourself and other people

  • A feeling of hopelessness about the future

  • Difficulty remembering important aspects of the event

  • Unable to maintain close relationships

  • Detached from family and friends

  • No interest in enjoyable activities 

  • Unable to experience positive emotions

  • Feeling numb

  • Being easily frightened 

  • Being on the look out for danger

  • Drinking too much or driving too fast

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Unable to concentrate

  • Frustration, irritable and angry outbursts or aggressive reactions

  • A sense of guilt or shame

If you have suicidal thoughts

  • Ask a friend or relative for help

  • Call a suicide hotline number or find an organisation you are comfortable with and keep their details in your wallet or purse - Samaritans is an excellent one

  • Make an appointment with your doctor or book an appointment with BewleyTherapy

There are many other instances, in fact any severely stressful or life-threatening event can trigger PTSD symptoms.  If any of these apply to you, please do contact me as soon as you're able to.

HOW IT'S DONE

When helping you through PTSD type symptoms, I prefer to meet you in person either at a location near you (the British Legion is good), on a military base if you prefer, or I could arrange to hire a private venue near to where you live.

I provide individual mentoring and conduct them in as few sessions as possible.  There's the initial introductory session (half hour), then the first counselling session which takes around one and a half hours.  Subsequent sessions are timed as close to the hour as possible.  

The initial introductory session 

This half hour session is free and can be conducted online - it is where we introduce each other and get to fill out the necessary (confidential) paperwork. 

The counselling sessions

For veterans, there is no fee for this service if you submit your requirement for us to the PTSDResolution charity.  The veterans charity processes the paperwork and payment for my service.  You will need to contact them to confirm your requirement for an agreement to therapy.  For more information, you can go to the PTSDR button below.

Other therapy options

You are also free to book private counselling, and pay for each half hour session if you wish.  Plus you are welcome to book a mentoring session or attend any of the workshops presented.  Counselling and mentoring are conducted as individual sessions, workshops are for groups.  If you should want these, please go to the Online Booking button below.

Confidentiality

You can be assured that your session is completely confidential.  Notes are made throughout each session and, if you would like a copy of them, these will be available for you.  

Average wait-time for therapy is around 10 to 14 days after registration.
