When someone experiences trauma and develops trauma-related symptoms, they may assume a negative belief of self, which can lead to depression, anxiety, confusion, poor concentration and difficulty in maintaining positive relationships. Sometimes, reaction to the trauma can include invasive thoughts or flashbacks, disturbed sleep, exaggerated response to reminders and suicidal thoughts. Trauma can affect how the brain manages day to day events. We use a compassionate approach that addresses all aspects of a person’s life, and incorporate the most current treatments for healing, including, techniques for treating dissociative disorders, as well as CBT, Exposure Therapy, and Supportive Therapy. Some therapists also use EMDR Therapy (see here for more information on EMDR).
