Trauma Therapy

The Journey to Healing

A Safe Place To Cope

What Is Trauma?

Trauma is a deeply disturbing or distressing event or experience that causes intense feelings of fear, helplessness or horror. A traumatic experience may be an isolated incident or it may occur repeatedly over time.

Trauma affects a person’s ability to manage their emotions, often leading to mental health challenges.

If left untreated, it can cause physical and emotional distress which may interfere with your everyday life. External events could trigger internal responses, which may cause you to feel that your life is not in your control.

Experiencing traumatic events such as abuse or neglect, domestic violence, natural disasters, serious accident, war, terrorism or violent crime may lead to PSTD, or post-trauamtic trauma disorder.
