PTSD Treatment London Benefits

Feel like your old self

PTSD symptoms might make you feel disconnected and not like your usual self. After PTSD treatment you should feel more connected to yourself, loved ones and the world as a whole.

PTSD symptom reduction

Our stabilisation and grounding therapy when used in conjunction with EMDR therapy helps to reduce PTSD symptoms. These include less flashbacks, less avoidant behaviour, feeling relaxed rather than hyper-vigilant and less intrusive memories and thoughts.

Ability to relax

PTSD symptoms might include feeling on edge, anxious or having hyper-vigilance. You might feel like you are no longer in homeostasis. PTSD treatment can help you feel balanced and relaxed again.


PTSD symptoms might include feeling a disconnect from ourselves and the people around us. PTSD treatment can help to reconnect us with ourselves and those around us.

PTSD and trauma can lead to unprocessed energy being held in the body's nervous system. CST is like a gentle form of osteopathy to help you release this energy and relax the nervous system.

PTSD Treatment FAQ

What happens in a PTSD treatment session?

PTSD treatment sessions are a chance for you to explore how you feel in relation to the trauma you have experienced and the difficulties you might be having. This exploration is carried out in a safe therapeutic non judgemental environment. You will also have the opportunity to process your trauma in a safe way to enable you to recover and heal.

How long will PTSD treatment last?

Everybody is different regarding how PTSd treatment lasts. This depends on whether you are experiencing PTSD or complex PTSD. It also depends on the type of trauma experienced. Typically a single event trauma takes less time to treat and process than a series of traumas or complex or relational trauma.
