Caring, effective PTSD treatment on the Gold Coast
MHM is located in Coomera, servicing the Gold Coast for a myriad of psychological concerns, including PTSD treatment. When visiting the clinic, each client is treated by Dr Bartholomew with three core values: honesty, trust and respect. This forms the basis of all of our client interactions, and Dr Bartholomew believes they are a prerequisite for effective psychotherapy and PTSD treatment. As a psychologist with extensive experience in this area, he knows how important a safe and comfortable environment is for those people who have been traumatised by past events and stresses.
Countless 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 provides psychological support and PTSD treatment for those living on the Gold Coast, in particular, Coomera, Upper Coomera, Oxenford and Hope Island.
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:
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 forms of events that can also create triggers.
Just as every person is a unique individual, the symptoms of PTSD vary depending on who it is and what traumatic event (or events) they have been exposed to.
In general terms, the condition can manifest as:
In some cases, you may only experience a handful of these – everyone is different; you may even experience them all at once at various times.
For those within Pimpama, Oxenford, Hope Island and across the Gold Coast, who experiencing issues in this area, seeing a professional in PTSD treatment may help to relieve symptoms and triggers of this condition. It is recommended you seek help when the distress and emotional toll from a traumatic event is affecting your work, school, home life or day-to-day living.
Dr Bartholomew believes in creating a safe and comfortable space for clients to explore their emotions and behaviours, while learning coping mechanisms to see them live life to the fullest.
