Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is best known as a disorder of veterans of war. It can also be a response to other traumatic events in civilian’s lives. Here are three of the most common symptoms:

One:  Insomnia: Due to increased anxiety and emotional arousal.

Two:  Nightmares: Due to the subconscious re-experiencing the traumatic event.

Three:  Failure to Remember Certain Aspects of the Event: Due to avoiding activities,    places or thoughts that remind one of the traumatic event.

  1. Good morning. My name is Susan Hogarth and I am part owner in a company called Moving the Human Spirit. We are a group of Trauma informed Coaches that primarily work with Military and First Responder couples where one or both have been diagnosed with PTSD.

    I am interested in having a conversation around what we do and how we might best support the public in having a better understanding on how those diagnosed with PTSD can continue to live a healthy, productive and balanced life style.

    Please feel free to call me at 604-581-4452. I look forward to a conversation.
