Psychotherapy for Trauma
Emotional and psychological trauma can result from extraordinarily stressful events that undermine your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world. Any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed, unprotected and isolated can result in trauma, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective circumstances that determine whether an event is traumatic, but your subjective emotional experience of the event. The more frightened and helpless you feel, the more likely you are to be traumatized.
Trauma can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed and can result in depression, anxiety or anger
In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma and I invite you to contact me today for a free consultation.
