Are you suffering with PTSD?

Most survivors of trauma will have symptoms such as nightmares and flashbacks that fade over time, but others develop PTSD as these symptoms persist or worsen.

PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can occur following a life-threatening event such as an attempted murder or armed robbery or a physical assault.

Most survivors of trauma will have symptoms such as nightmares and flashbacks that fade over time, but others develop PTSD as these symptoms persist or worsen.

  • Experiencing flashbacks
  • Repeatedly having a sense of reliving the experience
  • Nightmares & interrupted sleep
  • Intense physical / emotional distress when reminded of the event
  • Avoiding thoughts, conversations, activities or places that remind you of the experience
  • A sense of tension, anxiety, irritability, hyperactivity
  • Hypervigilance
  • Easily startled
  • Fear & loss of the sense of safety
  • Outbursts of aggression or rage
  • Problems in concentrating, reading, writing, speaking, short attention span
  • Sense of being stuck
  • Problems with making decisions
  • Inability to recall parts of or all of a traumatic event
  • Numbing & diminished interest in significant events
  • Dulled feelings. Restricted range of emotions
  • Detached from other people
  • Problems with relationships or attachment

EMDR for a Traumatic Event

My husband, my daughter and I were very traumatised after a recent armed robbery. We went for two EMDR sessions each at Eureka Centre. Our lives are back to normal. We can sleep peacefully at night and the anxiety is gone!

It is like a miracle

My 16 year old daughter experienced a traumatic event which happened 2 years earlier at school and after keeping it to herself for so long began to have serious panic attacks at school. The result was she left her school and withdrew from normal life totally, feeling depressed and suicidal at times. Thank God we then discovered The Eureka Centre.

After quite intense therapy with Jeanette using EMDR and hypnotherapy, I can report that she has returned back to normal schooling and is totally positive about life again – it is like a miracle!

I don’t know how we would have overcome this long dark episode in our lives had it not been for Jeanette at The Eureka Centre. We can’t thank you enough!
