Some areas of our lives are woven with experiences that leave lasting scars on our minds and hearts. These scars can start impacting different aspects of our lives when not treated.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is one such thread, impacting individuals who have faced traumatic events. At HA Counselling, we understand the profound toll trauma can take on your well-being, and we’re here to offer a compassionate and healing path forward.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a difficult and complex mental health condition that can occur in the aftermath of a traumatic event. Trauma takes many forms, from combat experiences and accidents to emotional or physical abuse, natural disasters, or witnessing distressing incidents.
People battling with PTSD might experience multiple symptoms, including:
Untreated PTSD can lead to the development of other mental health problems, like depression, anger management, anxiety, or substance abuse. Getting help early can prevent these complications.
