Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
It sounds like he is having a stress reaction to what transpired during the police academy.
His anxiety seems quite high and he could benefit from talking to someone about it. I love the idea of prayer but I think he may need a bit more support from a psychologist or social worker.
I'm sorry. Thanks Jen-I couldn't figure out where to type. I think that is the problem. Can he connect with you? He is at the academy all week long and I don't know how to get him to talk with someone.
of course he can. You know how to request me.
There is no shame in getting some extra support.
In thinking about this, he didn't know if he could take his computer to the academy, so he doesn't have it with him right now. Is there anything I can tell him until he can get his computer and contact you?
That you understand how he might be feeling and it can be a reaction to what took place at the academy and he may be having some anxiety due to it all. Let him know it is okay and he deerves to feel better and he can with some help.
I already told him what you said above. Do you have any other suggestions just to get him through the next couple of days?
Here is a wonderful download a well. It is a self hypnosis CD for these kinds of stress reactions. You can find it here for him. http://www.stevegjones.com/overcomePTSDhypnotherapycdmp3.htm
Yes have him begin to listen to the above link. It can be quite calming for him.
Is it hypnosis?
self hypnosis...relaxation and calming. It is wonderful.
Will that link be in my email?
yes once we are done you will get this full transcript.
Thank you. Also, can you help him if he contacts you?
i will speak with him of course and hear what is going on and make the appropriate suggestions.
Thank you. How does he request you?
he comes to the site and when he writes his question he needs to put for CoachJenK only at the start of it and it will come to me.
OK. Thank you so much. He is the most wonderful person and my heart is breaking to see him like this. I know his job depends on passing this academy so that may be part of it, too.
Like I said to you last time.....YOU are a wonderful parent.
I am here for both of you.
Thank you so much. I believe you are our lifeline at the moment. Thank you.
Thank you. I will make sure he gets the link you sent as well as your contact information. God Bless.
God bless you and your wonderful Son.
I went to that website, and it gives some samples, but I know he will not be real receptive to the self hypnosis. Could you offer me something else to help him please.
Thank you, Jen. Do I pay again? It was still a continue of my question. I wasn't sure how that worked.
I am just so worried. I talked to him from 2:00 - 5:30 this morning.
He broke out in sweats in the night. I am so sad for him.
Thank you so much for the additional link.
