Research has shown our minds and bodies can continue to be impacted long after a traumatic event has taken place. With an ability to permeate all areas of an individual’s life , trauma can impact physical and mental wellness, relationships, professional and professional achievement, all while stealing away feelings of joy, contentment, peace and happiness.
We use evidence based practices to treat clients struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma based cognitive and behavioral responses. Each step of the way we spend time teaching the biology, neurology and the psychology behind how the brain reacts in difficult situations so clients have a better understanding of their own mind and body responses. As we work through this new understanding, we then focus on implementing healthier, more sustainable responses through the use of effective therapeutic techniques.
While trauma can present in a variety of common ways, our treatment is always focused on our clients’ unique experience of their own traumatic experiences. This can sometimes mean recalling or re-telling difficult experiences and accessing painful memories. During these times we provide the support and guidance to help our clients navigate these recollections in a safe and secure way. When working with clients who have experienced complex trauma, we encourage and provide the opportunity for the coordination of care with other healthcare professionals, caregivers and other supports.
