PTSD treatment for Trauma Victims

Melbourne Counselling offers PTSD treatment in the Melbourne CBD. Trauma, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), can be a very distressing experience for victims or those who have been victimized by crime or catastrophic events. Some of the symptoms people report are repetitive disturbing images, dreams, or flashbacks. Many people also report irritability, strong startle responses, problems with concentration, and problems with sleeping.

One of the most researched ways of treating PTSD is through Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). CPT is a 12 session model that involves identifying distorted underlying belief systems that maintain symptoms of PTSD, as well as writing out and verbalizing the events that have occurred, all of which enable the brain to better process them with less of the difficult symptoms that PTSD causes for the individual. This is done in a careful and supportive manner, and at a pace that is decided upon by clinician and client.
