Desensitisation Techniques

Anxiety triggers are VERY common with sufferers of PTSD. Triggers can include negative or worrying thoughts, particular sounds and sights that remind them of a traumatic experience or physical sensations and changes in their body. Learning how to cope with the triggers is the key to copy with anxiety and PTSD symptoms.

Desensitisation is intended to reduce the impact of triggers that are the root cause of anxiety. Through the process of desensitisation, your body and mind get used to the triggers that occur.

However, it is best if you consult an experienced professional who knows what they’re doing with desensitisation techniques. Exposing yourself to particular triggers constantly is not going to produce the desire results – but rather, you need a plan – which is ultimately a way to calm yourself down when you’re about to experience a high level of anxiety.
