Trauma can arise from any one-off or ongoing situation that we experience as overwhelming, threatening, or out of our control. Recovery takes time. But if months have passed and your symptoms aren’t passing, you may need professional help from an expert trauma therapist.
When trauma is processed, we can still remember it but it feels like it is in the past. We don’t feel the emotions of the time again. In contrast, unprocessed traumatic memories can make us react as if the traumatic experience were happening in the here and now. These symptoms negatively impact many areas of our lives.
Counselling and online psychotherapy can help with healing from childhood trauma, as well as traumatic events such as bereavement, rape, accidents, fire, personal injury, abuse and assault. Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) respond well to talking therapies.
Trauma counsellors can focus on your traumatic symptoms whether they include anxiety, depression, guilt, sleep disturbances, flashbacks or nightmares.
Recovering from trauma takes time, and everyone heals at their own pace. Seek help for trauma if you are suffering for a prolonged time or your symptoms are worsening:
Working through trauma can be frightening and painful, so it is best undertaken with the help of a qualified therapist like the counsellors on this site. It’s important that the therapist you choose has experience treating trauma. But the quality of the relationship with your therapist is also important. Choose a trauma therapist you feel comfortable with.
