There is gentle, caring, and effective help now for PTSD, stress disorders, and trauma. Somatic Experiencing® is a psycho-biological and "body-centered" approach with focus on experiencing sensations in little amounts at a time, and restoring stuck or twarted physiological responses to past traumas. It is not just "talk therapy" yet we do talk. You do not have to re-tell any memories if you do not want to.
