Cognitive behavioral therapy is a short-term form of therapy that aims to change behavior, thoughts and emotional responses in order to change the quality of life. CBT has a scientific evidence base and is applied to a wide range of problems.

The existential approach can be applied in many different situations: when working individually or in a group, this approach helps the client in understanding her/his life, realizing values and responsibility for her/his choices.

Sometimes we may find ourselves in a situation where it is difficult to make a decision, understand a situation, understand ourselves or others, in situations where we feel lonely, loss, anxiety, fear or just emptiness.

Although people often think they want to change, more often than not, their attempts do not bring the desired results.

In such situations, it is good to seek help and guidance from an experienced person who can help you achieve a better quality of life, as well as look at life’s problems, situations, values and beliefs; become more truthful with yourself; expand your view of yourself and the world around you, gain new experience, come to terms with the past, present and future crises, understand yourself and others and achieve better interaction with others.

PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, is an anxiety problem that develops in some people after extremely traumatic events, such as war, sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking (including such sexual exploitation as prostitution, pornography, webcam, etc), an accident or natural disaster.

People with PTSD may feel that they are living though the traumatic event again via intrusive memories, flashbacks and nightmares; avoid anything that reminds them of the situation.

PTSD has following symptoms: 

  1. Intrusion: Intrusive thoughts such as repeated, involuntary memories; distressing dreams; or flashbacks of the traumatic event. Flashbacks may be so vivid that people feel they are re-living the traumatic experience or seeing it before their eyes.
  2. Avoidance: Avoiding reminders of the traumatic event may include avoiding people, places, activities, objects and situations that may trigger distressing memories. People may try to avoid remembering or thinking about the traumatic event. They may resist talking about what happened or how they feel about it.
  3. Alterations in cognition and mood: Inability to remember important aspects of the traumatic evet, negative thoughts and feelings leading to ongoing and distorted beliefs about oneself or others (e.g., “I am bad,” “No one can be trusted”); distorted thoughts about the cause or consequences of the event leading to wrongly blaming self or other; ongoing fear, horror, anger, guilt or shame; much less interest in activities previously enjoyed; feeling detached or estranged from others; or being unable to exprience positive emotions (a void of happiness or satisfaction).
  4. Alterations in arousal and reactivity: Arousal and reactive symptoms may include being irritable and having angry outbursts; behaving recklessly or in a self-destructive way; being overly watchful of one’s surroundings in a suspecting way; being easily startled; or having problems concentrating or sleeping. (*American Psychiatric Association) 

People with PTSD can also have physical reactions such as headache, pain in muscles, stomach pain, diarré, high blod pressure, etc.  

Not all people who have been in the traumatic situation develop PTSD. People can process trauma in different ways and can develop other reactions such as depression, alcohol problem, anxiety, etc. 

I work with PTSD and trauma with CBT approach which has the best evidence support. 

Book your therapy session, lecture or workshop on the topic of trauma and PTSD.

It was my first time in therapy. I can say that I've never expected this level of acceptance. I'm very grateful. I am strong after therapy and learned new things which I'm applying now in everyday life.

I felt understood and listened. I felt like I can decide. I appreciated those good questions which helped me to start thinking of stuff. I got many insights and finally understood what was my problem about. I am glad that I could change things to feel better.
