Knowledge is power when it comes to PTSD. Once you know your options, you chose what will work for you! Successfully choosing the right PTSD treatment and PTSD help, will help you overcome PTSD Symptoms.


Through my advice you will learn how to successfully identify PTSD Symptoms and choose the right PTSD treatment and PTSD help.



We usually start with teaching people how to relax then learning to manage, cope and deal with various moods. We would then use hypnosis or Neuro Linguistic Programming to determine the root of the problem and reverse or remove it. Then begin deliberate work at rebuilding future outlook.


This is a different style of self-test. As many of us PTSD sufferers tend to avoid doctors and other professionals about our problems. We may believe we have been abused by the system that placed us in this initial environment where we became traumatized, and they didn’t support us afterwards. This can create a sense of mistrust which we can sometimes generalize onto other agencies. We can also be prone to some denial as we don’t want to be saddled with any kind of long term illness especially one considered somewhat of a mental illness. I encourage you to answer honestly as you don’t have to share. The layout is different without boxes or numbers as that is too militaristic for me. This is for you!

The questions can be scored from 0 to 5. 0 meaning never and 5 meaning significant.

There are no right or wrong answers. Look at how many questions you answered with medium to high numbers and you might have some understanding of how serious your problem might be. If your score is high for a number of questions answered, and high for each answer scored, a consideration might be to seek help. This stuff does not get better on it’s own. If you prefer to work alone, we have a workbook and an online program in development which you might find of assistance. The first step is doing something if you want something in your life to change because the people you think are making you crazy are not going to change. PTSD Treatment options vary depending on the person. At Dynamic Discovery we work with you for a treatment plan that works for you!
