I recently met a woman I’ll call Anna who lost her spouse in a terrible accident ten years ago. Although time has passed, for her it is as if it happened yesterday.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
One of the most common reasons people come to see me for psychotherapy is to eliminate fears. Fear of flying is one of the most widespread.
The first therapist I ever saw was a very kind and wise woman. One day, in a moment when I was feeling angry with myself and she was trying to be supportive she said something that I have always remembered.
Many people work with me to overcome the after effects of traumas like rape, auto accidents, childhood abuse, war experiences, etc.
