PTSD Resolution

PTSD Resolution gives counselling to UK armed forces veterans to relieve military trauma for reintegration - with a 78% success rate through a network of 200 counsellors nationwide

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    PTSD Resolution provides a unique, nationwide counselling service to end the military trauma suffered by veterans of our Armed Forces. Military trauma causes flashbacks, nightmares, anger and depression - often leading to violence, alcohol and substance abuse, job loss, family breakdown and even suicide.

    PTSD Resolution counselling has an 83% success rate for UK armed forces’ veterans, TA, reservists and dependents in relieving mental health problems resulting from military service. It eases reintegration into a normal work & family life for our former soldiers, sailors and aircrew.

    The PTSD Resolution national outreach programme has over 200 therapists. It is free, private, confidential, local, and one-to-one. There are no waiting lists and no referral needed, thus reducing any sense of stigma. Counselling is brief and effective – generally within three to five one-hour sessions.

    Resolution counsellors are trained in Human Givens Therapy (HGT)(1), which includes a form of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TFCBT), consistent with the guidelines of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

    Veterans are not required to talk about the traumatic events. The programme policy is that re-exposure is better done in the client’s visual imagination and while in a relaxed state, protecting confidentiality and reducing distress. This is a relatively new development of TFCBT, similar to Imagery Re-scripting and Reprocessing Therapy (IR
