At times you have felt detached, or maybe even emotionally unresponsive. You may isolate or avoid environments where the trauma occurred. Intense fear may affect your social, educational, and work life. Your interpersonal relationships can leave you feeling isolated.
People who have experienced trauma often re-experience their pain in the form of flashbacks or nightmares. They may have physical reactions to the environment that leave them shaky and exhausted. Trauma effects people’s memory, concentration, sleep, and appetite. It can make you feel angry, irritable, watchful, and jumpy.
Often people who have experienced trauma come to therapy for help dealing with feelings of guilt, shame, self-blame, and isolation. We can help you to feel safe and begin to look at memories of the trauma to rewrite your story and make sense of the emotional pain and detachment.
In therapy trauma survivors can learn to connect to themselves, their positive emotions, and eventually to attach to others.
We can help you to tolerate negative feelings and flashbacks.
Relaxation and breathing techniques can increase awareness of the present, and help you to know the past cannot hurt anymore. Some methods we can use to dealing with flashbacks are distraction, imagery, awareness, and containment of the traumatized memories.
We can explore your nightmares so you can understand how they have come from the traumatic event and look at the triggers to the flooding memories so you can manage them. The physical and emotional numbing can be reduced by increasing social supports, decreasing self-medicating with addictions, and learning to appraise the actual threat in a given situation through reality testing. Issues with sleep, diet, anger, and self-esteem can be addressed and coping enhanced.
Many people have suffered trauma that effects their lives in many areas. It can be very difficult to begin the healing journey alone, but you don’t have to be alone.
