Trauma and PTSD – Dr Rose Gillett

Dr Rose Gillett      Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS

Trauma and PTSD: Many people will experience a traumatic event in their lives, such as a car accident or loss of a loved one, though most will not go on to develop debilitating symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Those that do may avoid internal, negative experiences associated with the event, such as flashbacks, through attempting to suppress or distracting themselves from the thoughts, and thus strengthening their anxiety at having these negative experiences, and increasing the likelihood of them returning.

Counselling Approach: Rose works from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) perspectives to work with PTSD and trauma. Through fostering tolerance for internal experiences and working with the associated anxiety, Rose works to bring acceptance and moving forward for her clients.
