Post-traumatic stress disorder

Post traumatic stress disorder is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event, either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. PTSD can develop immediately after a traumatic event, or it can surface months or years later.

People with PTSD often experience severe anxiety and have problems regulating their emotions, sleeping, and concentrating. These symptoms may seem unrelated to the cause of the trauma but they are actually very common among those who have experienced a traumatic event. In severe cases, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can develop into a Suicide Phenomenon.

The symptoms of PTSD can last for weeks, months, or even years. PTSD can affect men and women as well as children. It can also occur at any age, including childhood. PTSD treatments can help those affected by PTSD cope with the symptoms they experience.

At The Insight Clinic, we offer a wide range of treatment options and talk therapy is one of them. Each day, our patients complete a series of one-on-one sessions with experienced registered clinical psychotherapists or social workers.

Our social workers and therapists have helped hundreds of veterans overcome the emotional scars of battle. We can help you or a loved one with PTSD learn to deal with painful memories and find peace of mind. Our diversified treatments are customized to meet your needs.

Also, we at The Insight Clinic conduct neurofeedback, a form of therapy, for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Neurofeedback is also known as Biofeedback and psychophysiological training to help people understand their own emotions, thoughts and body. We help by training the brain to improve memory and reduce stress in this very challenging condition.

Adults diagnosed with PTSD who have not responded to medications or psychotherapy may be candidates for neurofeedback.
