A traumatic experience can have a profound and long lasting effect, making every day life very difficult to deal with. You may notice being triggered easily or have symptoms such as “flashbacks”, intrusive memories, nightmares, avoidance, high levels of fear and anxiety, sleep and concentration problems which are very common.
You may feel at a loss as to how to process what you've been through or how you can even start to heal. You just want to experience a sense of safety again.Trauma can affect anyone at anytime. It may overwhelm a person’s ability to cope.
The impact of trauma is to put our past in control. By working with a therapist you can regain control over your thoughts and emotions to make the memories of your experience more manageable.
