MTHS talks PTSD, Anxiety and Stress at The Wellness Show, March 3-5, 2017.
Moving The Humans Spirit (MTHS) is taking its work on the road to generate more awareness about PTSD, Anxiety and Stress and how its effects everyday relationships in a real way. “I believe that there is an assumption out there that if you have PTSD, Anxiety and or any Stress irregularity then you have a life sentence, and I also believe that because of that, people wont talk about it”, says MTHS’s founder Brad Hardie. “Our work helps establish a safe environment where individual’s or couples can explore and feel more in control of feelings, triggers and emotions. Speaking openly and learning new skills that support all aspects of their Post Traumatic Growth is critical if they are going to master and manage what holds them back”.
Moving The Humans Spirit is a Professional Life Coaching Consulting Company that provides drive and guidance for their clients to help respond to challenges, improve relationships and live a full and rewarding life in the face of traumatic pasts. “We focus on changing negative conditions and creating powerful outcomes that are measurable”, says Susan Hogarth, co-founder of MTHS. “Through a solution-focused approach, we look in a forward direction and employ a number of techniques that engage and stimulate actual change. As a result we are seeing people’s resilience rise and their anxiety and stress lower”, she says. “It’s as if someone opened a door and realized there was a whole new world out there and they want to be part of it–and further more, they can!”.
CBC news reported in September 18, 2008, that Almost 1 in 10 Canadians has post-traumatic stress at some point. This was from a study by researchers at McMasters University in Hamilton who conducted a telephone survey of 2,991 people, age 18 and over, from across Canada. The Canadian Mental Health Association of Ontario’s web site states anxiety disorders affect about 12 % of Canadians. These include phobias, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. “I’d say our society is aware of the situation, but still has stigma when it come to the healing process,” says Mr. Hardie. “I believe that the more open we can be with mental health, then the more opportunity for positive healing can take place”.
