Trauma & PTSD Therapy
What is Trauma and PTSD?
Trauma is an emotional and mental impact that a stressful event can have on our wellbeing. A stressful incident or a continuous exposure to emotional and mental distress, denial and disassociation are typical. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) arises from being exposed to significant traumatic events in life.
Symptoms of Trauma and PTSD
Individuals with PTS find it hard to relax because of the recurring and upsetting flashbacks, and if not dealt with appropriately, they can continue interfering in various ways. For example, trauma can strain relationships, suppress creativity, causing inner conflict and even symptoms like nausea, stomach aches, and headaches. Other reactions to trauma include exhaustion, confusion, sadness, anxiety, anger or rage, numbness, and isolation.
Trauma & PTSD Therapy Treatments
Trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy involves expressing deeply suppressed feelings and memories. The purpose of these therapeutical sessions is to help you explore and discover hidden talents, strengths, resources and build resilience. Emotional pain remains stored in your muscles and the endocrine (hormonal) system, and every person needs an individual treatment plan.
Mindfulness and sports exercises can help manage anxiety, and strategic hypnotherapy can help you improve with coping mechanisms. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective psychotherapy technique that alleviates traumatic memories. It helps treat depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and dependence.
