There are many different types of Trauma.
I would like to emphasise that Trauma is subjective - your experience is yours and no one else’s to define or interpret. All kind of factors contribute to a person's experience of trauma which explains why the same “kind” of experience affects people differently.
Successfully treating Trauma
Through much clinical research and advance in Neuroscience over the last two decades we now know much more about PTSD and importantly how to successfully treat it. It requires very specific approaches to be effective. Two treatments are regarded by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence as "Gold Standard" in helping people overcome PTSD. These are TF-CBT and EMDR. I am clinically trained in both of these treatments. They both do the same thing but in slightly different ways which we can go through in person at the beginning of our work together.
Using specific methods we help your brain remember your trauma in a different way - one which is no longer as disturbing or disruptive which will mean your flashbacks stop. We will also deliberately focus on helping you get your life back so that things that have been triggering you no longer do.
I am privileged to have worked with people suffering from PTSD and Trauma for many years now and am passionate about helping people get back their sense of self. If you are suffering now I can help you. Give me a call and we can discuss what will work best for you.
