THE story of a woman whose life has been put back on track after suffering two years of post traumatic stress disorder will be on BBC Inside Out this evening.
Suzanne Gibbons witnessed a fatal motorbike crash near Lowestoft two years ago. Shock turned into post traumatic stress disorder and she has been unable to work or drive a car due to flashbacks. A course of treatment with Norfolk therapist Sue Bayliss has helped to restore her life.
During the therapy the client has to visualise an image of the trauma. The therapist then waves a finger in front of their eyes from left to right. Each time the client says the trauma becomes more blurry. Why the treatment works remains a mystery but one theory is that it mimics REM sleep and allows the brain to process the trauma.
BBC Inside Out East is on BBC One tonight at 7.30pm.
