PTSD – Dealing with Trauma: The Body Keeps the Score

A video to summarise how the body keeps the score – how trauma affects a person.

If you have experienced trauma you may have experienced PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) or even Complex PTSD. You may realise it’s so hard to communicate, you may over react to situations and find difficulties with relationships. The cause of PTSD is not chemical or psychological but it’s neurological – it’s stored in our brains. This affects the structures in the developing the brain.

I’ve suffered from complex PTSD but when I knew what it was I found ways I could regulate my state of mind, I became more aware of my thinking, I made decisions on my therapy and controlled my reactions and I’m able to talk openly about my symptoms of PTSD.

Maybe you live with someone or know a friend with PTSD … this may help you or someone you know. Self awareness is highly important and many women who have joined my women inspired group have expressed the need for self awareness.
