I am so grateful you were able to help at such short notice. C certainly seems better since your chat and certainly seems to be benefitting from the sessions at the moment which is lovely to see. He told me he gave you a painting, in itself being able to do that raises his confidence and self-esteem – so you are hitting all the right buttons!
I suffered from PTSD through active service in Palestine from 1946 – 1948, I decided to contact you. When I came to you and you spoke to me about difficulties people had, you put me at ease with my difficulties. My few hourly sessions I had with you helped a great deal when you explained other factors that could have been involved with the incidents I explained to you.
I wish to thank you for the help you have given me. Over a five week period I had five sessions and it has helped me a great deal. I do not now have constant flashbacks or nightmares ( I still have short ones) I now sleep a lot better, 5 to 6 hours a night, before it was none, or 1 – 3 hours at the most and I was tired all of the time. If I start to feel bad I use the techniques you gave me and think backwards and it solves the problem. My health is now so much better.

“Not only do Veterans at Ease help ex-service men and women, they also provided support to their families. I can’t begin to thank Clair enough for the help that she has given me through what was a very difficult time in our lives. When I first attended a session with Clair I was finding it difficult to cope with my husband’s fluctuating moods and felt that I was constantly walking on egg shells. The stress of remaining hyper vigilant and trying to modify situations so that he wouldn’t ‘be set off’ was beginning to make me feel very low and I was concerned that the situation was also effecting our son. Clair supported me through this time, explaining how I could help my husband, but also encouraging me to make positive changes in my own life and teaching me techniques so that I felt more prepared to deal with challenging situations when they occurred. This meant that I no longer took my husband’s anger and moods so personally and was better able to cope with the difficult patches. Veterans at Ease is a fantastic charity, they are extremely welcoming, supportive and encouraging. They gave me back my husband, but they have also made us a stronger, happier family unit. Clair, Garreth and the whole team, I cannot thank you enough.”
“After a difficult tour in Afghanistan I began experiencing problems with nightmares, flashbacks and anger. Increasingly I was finding everyday life more and more difficult and no longer seemed to get enjoyment out of anything. My relationship with my wife and son was deteriorating and I felt like there was no way out. I realised that I needed help and thankfully I came across the Veterans at Ease website. Garreth has helped me get my life back through the use of NLP and I now can honestly say I feel happy again, something which I had not felt in a long time. I was reluctant to ask for help as I felt that there were those that needed it more and I put it off for a long time, but I’m so glad that I finally did make that call.”
