To read about my own Journey of how I healed from PTSD, read my recently released book “Scar Wars Forged In Fright” Available through Amazon.com Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble and soon to other Brick and Mortar Stores.
Today I was awarded my certification to be a Certified Professional Coach. Well, Awarded in the sense that I EARNED IT! My specialty is to help people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to be able to Socially Integrate outside of the therapeutic realm, My clients have to be currently in therapy or have had therapy for the Disorder. I cannot diagnose, treat, or cure PTSD or any other mental illness that causes this loss of societal interaction. Through tools and techniques and setting achievable goals, my plan is to help people transfer from closely monitored therapeutic settings into real life situations in today’s society. All from the privacy of your home.
Is there such a need? Yes, as a Survivor of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder it is imperative not to leave out this critical step in the process of returning to these normal activities of society. For some people who have been through therapy, this is not a problem but there are others who are like I was. I was strong and capable in a therapeutic setting often even leading during group therapy, but when I left therapy I struggled with the process of reintegrating into society. Fears, Anxieties, and the struggle to use what tools I had learned in therapy in regular social situations was sometimes too overwhelming and so I closed myself off. But I learned the hard way to interact socially over the last 20 years, as I went from victim to Survivor and now on to Thriver by the grit of my teeth. But it does not have to be like that for you. Setting attainable goals and achieving them is the best way to learn how to become a Thriver.
