Further information

I am one of a network of counsellors offering FREE counselling to ex-soldiers throughout the UK with the charity POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD)RESOLUTION. If you have signs and symptoms of PTSD please contact


PTSD Resolution treatment meets the special needs of veterans.   It is effective without the therapist or anyone else ever knowing about the events that caused the trauma.   This ensures confidentiality. Military trauma causes flashbacks, nightmares, anger and depression - often leading to violence, alcohol and substance abuse, job loss, family breakdown and even suicide. The PTSD Resolution outreach programme helps veterans and TA struggling to reintegrate into a normal work & family life because of military post traumatic stress suffered as a result of service in the armed forces.
