Beyond Post-Traumatic Stress

Ever been told that PTSD can’t be resolved? Steve Gardiner is living proof that that’s simply not true.

Steve was conscripted into the army in Zimbabwe as a medic and his experience there led to post-traumatic stress – though at that time it didn’t have a name.

Here he talks about what it’s like to have PTS – the anger, guilt, hypervigilance, flashbacks and resultant exhaustion. He also talks about how he resolved it, and advice he would give both to people living with PTS as well as to their family and friends.

Steve now specialises in helping others resolve PTS, anxiety and depression.
