She’d been suffering from PTSD: “Wow Dex, I don’t feel like crying, that’s a solid improvement!…This is a really good feeling that I haven’t had in a long time!”
It is not at all unusual for people to fall into severely traumatized, anxiety-ridden conditions. This is what is meant by PTSD, or “post-traumatic stress disorder”. The condition does exists, but I object to the label, because having defined oneself that way, it is that much more prevalent, and harder to shed.
Common, standard techniques and forms of therapy are usually, at best, painfully slow routes to marginal improvement. It takes both well-understood precision techniques and a deep capacity for empathy to really remedy and release the constant state of suffering.
People in that highly traumatized state of mind find ordinary daily functions and activities troubling and challenging, and even impossible to engage in.
I’m often engaged in facilitating recovery from this debilitating state for clients. My personal shock resolving technique is a key element necessary for every such “PTSD” client, as they are swamped in moments of personal shock.
Lily C. was one such client. She had this to share after her first session with me:
“Wow Dex, I don’t feel like crying, that’s a solid improvement! That’s very cool! This is a really good feeling that I haven’t had in a long time! I don’t feel fearful or scared-I think I can have a conversation now! Thank you, this is a pretty amazing win!”

This is what I do, and I can do the same for you, or a friend in need.
“I am happy to report that I am experiencing a tangible improvement from that session. There was this hidden but persistent layer of stress and discomfort present whenever I was driving my car or being outdoors”
Hi Dexter, When I saw your email suggesting I have a session on Thursday I agreed but secretly expected no further benefit from that session. I am happy to report that I am experiencing a tangible improvement from that session. There was this hidden but persistent layer of stress and discomfort present whenever I was driving my car or being outdoors. It is only by its absence that I am aware that something has changed for the better.

“I feel the expression of my full beingness, a fluid, open versatile expression of self! So much has now been digested, thanks Dex, I really appreciate your skill at this!”
C.S., July 2022
“I’m feeling more relaxed, it’s gotten quiet in my mind…I look forward to appreciating people in the present!”
M.A. had previously had sessions with one or two practices that you may have heard of or been familiar with, but was still seeking to have his hopes and expectations satisfied. He recently found his way to having sessions with me, and has this to share after his latest session experience:
“I’m feeling more relaxed, it’s gotten quiet in my mind. Now I feel able to see another person in the present, without any prejudicial attitudes, projections or filters, and appreciate their individual qualities. I look forward to appreciating people in the present!
I’m very happy with what we did today!”
L.B. came to me seeking help for his anxieties after having already invested much time and money in sessions that he’d hoped would have helped. Since then, some of our work has sometimes involved unraveling the effects and content of some of those previous sessions. It is fairly common for me to help a client to be free of the feelings and attitudes that came from unhelpful session experiences. L.B. had this to share today after our session:
“That was something I thought I’d never be free of. I’m getting such relief! and in addition, I thought that what happened in (the previous practice he engaged in which he’d had sessions) couldn’t ever be solved, I thought I’d never be free of that!”
L.B., June 2022
Now I can be me! I can move through life experiences, I can change, I can be open to interaction. I can experience a larger me, this is really cool, thank you Dex, much appreciated. Your expertise is pretty amazing!

We all have our moments when we could really use some help, some support, some relief, someone to help us weather the storm, and emerge whole, and even enriched from the challenge of the experience. That’s something I’m good at. My participant JD wanted to communicate the following to me after such a passage: “Dex, thank you so much for being there at this juncture in my life. I’m lucky to know you. Now I definitely feel empowered.”
JD, March 2022
“It’s not a necessity to push my viewpoint anymore!”
RN, March 2022
“Now I can simply be, without engaging in an effort to do, or have”.

This from a client of mine today:
“Since my last session, I have an amazing amount of love for everybody!”
