If you have experienced or witnessed a life-threatening situation such as an assault, a tragedy, a car accident, an abusive relationship or an abusive parent you have likely suffered from some degree of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Symptoms of trauma include:

• Flashbacks
• Intrusive Memories
• Avoidance behavior
• Feeling easily overwhelmed or agitated
• Sleep difficulties
• Physical restlessness
• Feeling stuck in old patterns

Trauma can take the form of capital “T” trauma as in an assault, or it can take the form of little “t” trauma from the smaller insults of daily living. Either way, when we feel threatened we store the experience in a heightened state and that experience becomes stuck. Traumatic memories then become buried in the unconscious only to be triggered later in life by a host of factors, including anniversary dates, similar words, actions, looks, sounds, or feelings. When traumatic memories are triggered, we may or may consciously recall the old memory, but we find ourselves responding in old stuck patterns.

However, these memories can be released from the psyche through therapeutic treatment such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Once the memories are released, the psyche can heal and symptoms that have persevered for what may seem like a life time, will immediately dissipate.
