For those who have endured a highly stressful event and are experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a consequence, psychological therapies are usually recommended first. In the first few days after an event an approach called Watchful Waiting is sometimes recommended, according to the UK’s National Health Service, because 2 in every 3 people who develop problems after a traumatic experience get better within a few weeks without treatment.
Therapists on this page have stated a specific focus on trauma and PTSD. Some have undertaken specialist training and you may wish to check for this, however many capable and experienced therapists will not necessarily have specialist qualifications. For reassurance on a therapist’s integrity and capabilities look for a therapist registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or a similarly reputable professional body which binds its members by a strict codes of ethics. Some therapists with a deep specialism and strong personal interest in trauma may run support groups for survivors.
