Overcome Your PTSD with Online Therapy

Category: PTSD | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that some people get after experiencing a threatening and painful event like an accident, sexual abuse, war, bad experience in health care etc.

If you have experienced a traumatic event in your life and are faced with flashbacks of this trauma, memory loss, feeling much more anxious and vigilant compared to before or avoiding things that remind you of the trauma, then you might be suffering from PTSD. Note that these symptoms often appear within a few weeks but it can also take years.

Our therapy for PTSD is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With the guidance of your therapist and CBT for PTSD, you will work through the traumatic memories, maybe even visiting situations and/or places that remind you of your trauma. While this might sound painful, it has been proven in numerous research studies to be an effective way to overcome PTSD. This is done under controlled conditions guided by your therapist at a pace that suits you. The result? A dramatic decrease in your anxiety reactions and symptoms, allowing you to live a life free from past traumatic events.

"I really enjoy the daily interaction with a therapist and find it better to communicate in writing where I can organize my thoughts as opposed to a face to face office visit."

"I've been doing the program for about a month and so far it has helped me out. I am able to actively receive feedback on my day to day habits and thought processes. My therapist asks appropriate questions and provides very helpful and non-judgmental suggestions."

"So far I have been working through my issues for a couple of weeks and I have already felt a change in being "aware" of my emotions and being able to understand them, instead of just feeling them and having it take over my entire day. That alone has helped me to manage some of the non-logical mood swings I have been having. And I want to say thank you for being someone I can talk to, since the average person would not be able to handle this constant stress on a daily basis. Truly thank you for giving me someone I can talk to. That alone is already making a difference for me. Thank you."

"This has been a very personalized experience and productive way to approach therapy. The online format forces me to do the work in thinking through the issues. It also keeps me from trying to get my therapist to "like" me-allowing me to be perhaps a bit more transparent than is comfortable for me in person. All in all, I would highly recommend this platform to anyone needing some help."

"This program has been beneficial to me.
The videos and worksheets have been especially helpful.

I chose not to have live chats with my therapist, but I feel her written notes and encouragement to me were beneficial. I moved along a lot faster in the program over the course of a full month than the feedback I’ve gotten. To be fair, I did sessions 6-8 all this weekend, so she hasn’t had time to review. I was through session 5 by last weekend and devoted a lot of time to one part of the session and would love to have had comments through as far as I’d completed. My latest feedback at the end of this final week of my month-long subscription is still just through session 2. At least that’s all I can find. I have implemented and practiced all the suggestions and and completed all of the exercises except for one that I skipped on purpose. My current subscription expires in two days.

I wish there were a search feature for therapist feedback and maybe there is, but I don’t see one. It can be a little tedious going back to each worksheet to find something I want to comment on if I didn’t do it initially. I don’t care for the Action Plan calendar. It’s not user-friendly. I’d like to copy one day’s actions to another day without having to start over. It’s too time consuming. Some days I do the same things. The Notes app on my phone is a lot easier to use and I can record what I need to do with with audio.

I’m on the list to work with a local CBT specialist in my area. So, I signed up for this program to do in the interim while I was waiting for my first appointment with her. I’m not going to continue with the online program, but I’m grateful for it and for what I’ve learned and for the fact that it helped me learn about new ways to challenge my thinking and re-channel it to more positive thoughts that bring about better behavior. I will continue to use what I’ve learned, particularly journaling and re-directing my thinking. I already do yoga and meditate. I recommend giving this program a try if you’re not sure. I’d do it again.

"This has been helpful to just providing me with an outlet. I've very much so needed it & didn't realize how much. My therapist has been helpful with providing me with tools to practice & holding me accountable."
