Many people suffer difficult periods and trauma at some point in their life, and unfortunately, some will go on to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Psychologists remain unsure as to why some people develop the condition, while others do not. Regardless of how or why you developed this anxiety disorder, a psychologist can help you begin piecing your life back together and work with you to alleviate the symptoms. Dr Bartholomew at MHM Psychology provides psychological support and PTSD treatment for those living on the Gold Coast, in particular, Coomera, Upper Coomera, Oxenford and Hope Island.

What is PTSD?

PTSD is essentially an anxiety disorder that is triggered by a traumatic event or that can occur with chronic exposure to trauma, such as domestic violence. PTSD is a sustained reaction to these stressful events. Long after the trauma has ended, people may continue to relive their experience through flashbacks, nightmares, anger, sadness or fear.

Some of the most common sufferers of PTSD are:

  • Returned or active military personnel
  • Witnesses to, or victims of, physical, emotional or sexual abuse
  • Rape and sexual assault victims
  • Survivors of natural disasters
  • Survivors of significant accidents, such as motor vehicle accidents
  • Those who have experienced traumatic medical procedures or incidents

This is a brief list of the most common situations where people may suffer from the condition, and is by no means exhaustive. We are aware that there are many other events that can trigger PTSD.

Understanding the symptoms of PTSD

Just as every person is a unique individual, the symptoms of PTSD may vary depending on personality and the nature of the traumatic event (or events).

In general terms, the condition can manifest as:

  • Depression, feelings of helplessness or worthlessness, or suicidal thoughts
  • Rage, irritability, or over-alertness
  • Easily startled
  • An intense fight-or-flight response
  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • Avoidance of anyone or anything that serves as a reminder of the trauma
  • Intense fear, anxiety or sadness
  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing
  • Insomnia
  • Unexplained chronic pain
  • Gastrointestinal issues

In some cases, a person may only experience one or two of these symptoms, at other times, they may experience a many of these PTSD symptoms.
