How does PTSD Counselling work?
PTSD counselling has many different approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy and prolonged exposure therapy. Cognitive therapy helps you better understand the causes of traumatic events and aims to alleviate feelings of self blame.
Prolonged exposure therapy focuses on reducing the fear associated with the memory of a traumatic event and desensitizing yourself from the feelings of fear associated with the experience. It may be hard at first but the more times individuals openly speak about their experience, the more they become desensitized to it.
