In more than two decades, I've worked with crisis situations, sudden and unexpected deaths, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), military deployment, soldiers and marines KIA, past abuse, and chronic and terminal illnesses. Events like these can change how we perceive the world around us and how we relate to our emotions. It can even alter how our brains function, not to mention how it impacts those around us.
Along with talk therapy to work through grief issues, intense feelings, and unconscious patterns that come with trauma, I also employ Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Yoga, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Trained in the US and in India, I find that mindfulness and meditation are excellent practices. However, it is important to know if or when to apply such methods to PTSD.
