Trauma can come from childhood adverse events, or more recent events. It can be from something horrific, or from more everyday experiences that have far reaching personal consequences.
Trauma can be defined as an experience that is negative and upsetting. This can be from the break up of a relationship, bullying at work, a car accident... anything really that is aversive to you.
The experience is often deeply distressing and memories can haunt a traumatised person, whether in unexpected intrusive memories or dreams.
Post traumatic Stress Disorder is when a persons alarm system stays switched on, after the trauma has passed. The person feels on edge all the time and struggles to function due to the physical side effects. This can have long standing cognitive, emotional and physical consequences.
Therapy has been shown to be extremely effective in helping people heal from trauma.
In our service we specialise in treating trauma of all kinds. We may use EMDR, CBT or whichever approach will seem most beneficial based on your assessment.
