Veterans at Ease is a registered charity committed to helping Veterans, Reservists, Serving Military Personnel and their Families deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other combat stress-related issues. We will help anyone who feels they need our support whether they have been diagnosed with PTSD or not.
We provide therapy and support through a technique called neuro-linguistic programming or NLP. We currently have three offices, one in Jarrow (South Tyneside), one in Durham City (County Durham) and one in Newton Aycliffe (South Durham, Tees Valley). Our therapy is provided free of charge by our trained therapists (all of whom have suffered themselves, been through treatment with Veterans at Ease and then gone on to qualify as therapy practitioners themselves).
Evidence has shown that the majority of servicemen and women do not seek help with regard to combat-related stress issues until 10 to 14 years after the event. Considering the UK’s recent military commitments in Iraq, Northern Ireland and Afghanistan, the figure for those potentially suffering from their experiences whilst on active service is substantial. Recent estimates show that as many as 90,000 people could be affected by PTSD in the North East alone.
Symptoms of PTSD include social isolation, paranoia, anger, depression, flashbacks and nightmares with the effect in some cases of suicide.
WE ARE HERE TO HELP THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED AND STILL SERVE FIND PEACE OF MIND
