A good outcome of therapy would be that someone see flashbacks and nightmares reduced or even go away completely and the person who was able to get back to ordinary day to day life will start to build up a new life in light of the trauma they’ve experienced. Often with PTSD, people might suffer physical injuries or changes to their sense of self, that means the life that they develop might look quite different. So actually having the space to think about what do I wanna with my life, what can I do in light of what I’ve been through, and to start working towards those values and goals can be a good outcome of therapy too.
