The treatment of
post-traumatic stress disorder
The Memrec Method can be effective for certain types of PTSD. On this page you can read more about PTSD and its treatment at Kindt Clinics.
Symptoms of PTSD
PTSD can arise when someone has experienced a threatening situation that he / she has not been able to handle properly. Someone with PTSD often relives the trauma. In certain situations, while sleeping, or at unexpected times.
Physically this can manifest itself in palpitations, tremors, sweating, breathing faster and a feeling of panic. Other symptoms of PTSD can include concentration problems, irritability, sleeping problems, decreased interest in others or activities, aggression, shame and depressed mood.
The treatment at Kindt Clinics is suitable for certain forms of PTSD
Kindt Clinics' Memrec method has proven effective for PTSD caused by a one-time (or short-term) trauma that you can still remember very well.
If it concerns PTSD after a long traumatic period or otherwise complex PTSD, then Memrec is unfortunately not suitable, and you may benefit more from other forms of cognitive behavioral therapy. This also applies when there are no (vivid) memories of the trauma, or when it is not possible to feel the emotion associated with the trauma.

Approach to treatment for PTSD
The treatment of PTSD is comparable to the treatment of a phobia. The difference is that with a phobia treatment we actually confront you with your fear, while with a PTSD treatment this is done imaginary (by talking to you in a certain way). Depending on the trauma, we sometimes use technology such as virtual reality to evoke the experience.
The pill then helps to prevent the strong emotions from returning.
The effect is abrupt and therefore sometimes hard to believe. In most cases, two treatment sessions are sufficient to resolve the complaints. The memory of the traumatic experience is still there, but the intense emotion that accompanied it is no longer there.
