TRAUMA ( PTSD) COUNSELLING

Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson) states, “Symptoms of trauma usually start within three months of a traumatic incident. It has been reported, in rare cases, that symptoms of PTSD may only occur after a number of years. It is not uncommon for symptoms to be present for a short period, then disappear, only to return again.”

Exposure to new stress may increase the symptoms, as can reminders of the traumatic incident. Therapists who address Post Traumatic Stress Disorder generally use one, or a combination of trauma therapies during treatment.
