How Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be Treated in Military Veterans


Resolution is a charity that provides free human givens therapy to traumatised military service veterans. One of the veterans who underwent the treatment was featured in a Daily Telegraph 'Life on Civvy Street' video series:

"When Anthony Taylor left the Army after 11 years service he was haunted by the memory of a murder he had witnessed in Northern Ireland. Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder he received therapy that helped him to cope with the memories":



Anthony was treated using the rewind technique, a non intrusive technique for treating PTSD that uses imaginal exposure and cognitive restructuring to gently break the association between the emotional response and the memory of the traumatic event or events.

Resolution is a charity and urgently requires funding to continue treating traumatised military veterans who often have nowhere else to turn, click here to find out how to donate to Resolution.

Here are the words of veterans who have undergone the trauma therapy with Resolution:

"…Still no nightmares, even after the (Falklands) pilgrimage. I thought the trip to San Carlos would set it all a-rolling again and spent a lot of time worrying about it beforehand. But it didn't. Of course the day was emotional - I'm no robot - but the following nights were as peaceful as I could have hoped...." 

 "…I feel really great and have at present no problems... I have not felt this good for a long time. I will keep you informed of how I am progressing as time goes by. Many thanks for your help and support…" 

 "I have been struggling with traumas from 25 years ago in N Ireland, and a family trauma 15 years ago, and became increasingly angry and alchoholic. The family one was the worst and I was reluctant to face dealing with it. But after six sessions with Resolution I had dealt with the N Ireland ones, and another three dealt with the family one. I am now much more in control, and have reduced my drinking, and at last sleeping better."
