There are many approaches for treating PTSD, some involving medication and others focused on psychotherapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for PTSD is a particularly useful approach, because it focuses on changing the client’s actual patterns of habitual negative thinking and beliefs and attempts to change these into more positive and functional forms.

The form of cognitive therapy offered here is called Mindfulness Therapy (MT), which can be defined as the direct application of mindfulness to an emotional complex to facilitate transformation and resolution. This form of therapy is available online via Skype (Online Counseling Service).

How to Heal Traumatic Memories

Our habit is to try and escape our painful memories and emotions. This is quite natural and the mind is designed to react to painful experiences in this way. This  avoidance behavior may work well for external threats, but of course, it does not work so well for internal threats in the form of those painful emotions and memories. In fact, the first principle of healing trauma is that you must face it directly. Now, the art is in how exactly you do this, because simply becoming overwhelmed by your painful emotions and reliving the trauma is not very likely to help the healing process.

The purpose of Mindfulness Therapy is not to relive the traumatic experience, but to re-experience the memory in a different way and from a different perspective.

At first this may seem impossible, but with practice, you can establish a new way of relating to your memories and emotions that is not reactive and in which you can see the emotion or memory without becoming overwhelmed by either. In Mindfulness Therapy we call this learning to sit with our emotions, with our pain, with the traumatic memory.

Learning how to sit with our emotions is the most important step in the healing process.

We are in a very real and tangible way, learning how not to be overwhelmed by the emotion. This puts us in a very strong position from which we can respond to the emotion with compassion, as a friend. We actually take a role in helping the emotion heal itself.

This compassionate response to painful emotions is the most effective way to bring about healing. I have seen people heal from horrific memories of childhood abuse through this very process of cultivating a relationship with their worst nightmares, as a friend through mindful awareness and genuine compassion.

Whether you are struggling with loss, guilt, regret or any of the many painful emotions associated with trauma, the approach of sitting with the emotions inside yourself, just as you would sit with a friend in pain will have a profound transformational effect on the traumatic memory itself.

Evidence for the Effectiveness of Mindfulness Therapy for PTSD

 There are a growing number of studies showing that Mindfulness Therapy can be very helpful in helping people recover from trauma and PTSD. Here is one article describing a study for the effect of Mindfulness Therapy for Combat-related PTSD conducted at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
