PTSD

Whether you've experienced a life-threatening situation or felt your safety was at risk, trauma therapy can significantly improve your mental well-being. 

Trauma can affect your physical health, relationships, work, and daily functioning. It may also lead to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and physical pain. It can also influence your beliefs about yourself, others, and the world around you.  Trauma can also make it difficult for the brain to think clearly or make decisions when  triggered moments.

Triggers and trauma are closely connected. Triggers are things that remind someone of a traumatic event, causing intense emotional or physical reactions.

They can be unique to each person and may involve things like certain sounds, smells, or thoughts that bring back intense memories.

Trauma therapy offers a structured and supportive environment where you can safely explore and process traumatic experiences. Through various techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), and mindfulness-based approaches, trauma therapy helps to identify and challenge negative thoughts and beliefs, develop coping skills, and regulate their emotions.
