Do Veterans only suffer from PTSD symptoms?

If we truly want to help veterans heal, we have to find a way to take the charge out of the memories, not just tranquilize the stress symptoms. Skillful and insightful EFT coaching can often do this in a respectful, gentle and effective way.

Testimonial from a Veteran of the war in Bosnia on EFT for self help

I was a driver on convoys in Croatia and Bosnia in early 90’s before the Dayton Agreement. It took 6 years for the PTSD, Combat Stress etc… to go full throttle on my brain, body and soul, the latter being the worst in my opinion. More than fifteen years has past and I am still fucked up, but not nearly as bad. I decided to tap on a panic attack that I had in the middle of the night. After five minutes, I felt no pain, not in my body not in my soul.

I actually fell asleep. I can only say that I tapped my way out of it. Next day, I woke up and had a great day. I am going to continue to tap and free myself from the ghosts that haunt all of us.

Creating rapport with Veterans and their families

For most Veterans, working with a non-military coach, even talking with a non-veteran is very difficult. In my experience, most Veterans only trust veterans, and only share what they have been through, with a hand selected number of people.

In my experience, it helps when a practitioner starts the conversation with the question: “What do you need to know about me?”

Many Veterans believe that they were “one of  the lucky ones”, and that help and support should only go to those who have “really suffered”. But the exposure to war changes everybody, and accepting help and support in coping with this is neccessary and important.
