Program: Trauma Recovery
Psychological trauma can present in many ways. It can result from a distressing event or a series of events. It is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that either exceeds one’s ability to cope or ability to integrate the emotions involved. It can manifest weeks, years—or even decades— later, as one struggles to cope with presenting circumstances. Without treatment, it can lead to serious, long-term negative consequences.
Because the effects of trauma differ between individuals, people will react to similar traumatic events differently. Some people go on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after being exposed to a traumatic event or events.
Triggers, also known as trauma reminders, can cause great distress as well as induce behaviours that seem unusual to others. People may experience damage to their sense of self, a lack of safety and a reduced ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships.
Triggers can cause anxiety and other associated unpleasant emotions, including panic attacks and feelings of anger, which sometimes occur in inappropriate or unexpected ways. Upsetting memories—including images, thoughts, flashbacks and nightmares—may be experienced, resulting in insomnia.
Our Trauma Recovery program provides individually tailored practical support. Our range of therapy interventions, including EMDR, is designed to help you resolve the effects of past traumatic experiences so you can live without the unpleasant sensations, memories, thoughts and beliefs associated with the original trauma. You can well and truly resolve the past—and put it behind you.
