Trauma is an ancient Greek word meaning wound or hurt. Trauma is a reaction to an experience. People will react differently to the same distressing event and it is important to emphasise that there are no right or wrong ways. In part your response is affected by your personality, but it also depends on your previous experiences, the extent to which there are other stresses and strains in your life and the amount of support you have.
Your ability to heal is affected by your capacity to understand and process your responses. This can be challenging if you are still traumatised. Through trauma therapy I can offer you the support which will enable you to process your trauma and heal.
“What if I told you that damage doesn’t define you and the way you survive is no one else’s business?”
