woman talks with therapist about trauma therapyTraumatic events can have a profound effect on your mental health. Whether you’ve experienced a single traumatic event or have been exposed to ongoing trauma, the effects can be long-lasting. Waiting for the pain to just go away on its own can actually do more harm than good. However, there’s an effective, evidence-based treatment that can help you heal: trauma therapy.

Trauma therapy is a form of psychotherapy designed to address the emotional, psychological, and physical symptoms of trauma. At TRU Wellness Center, we offer trauma therapy to help clients process and heal from past traumas. Through approaches like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), our therapists work with clients to identify and address the root causes of their symptoms.

Understanding Trauma

Trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. It can include events like physical or sexual abuse, natural disasters, accidents, and witnessing violence, but the experience of trauma is unique to each individual. What may be traumatic for one person may not have the same impact on another.

When someone experiences trauma, it can bring about a range of emotional and physical responses. These can include anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, difficulty sleeping or concentrating, and even physical symptoms like headaches or stomachaches. Over time, these symptoms can interfere with daily life and relationships.

Left untreated, trauma can also lead to the development of mental health conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders, and depression. Working with a mental health professional trained in trauma therapy can help prevent these long-term effects and promote healing.

Signs You Would Benefit from Trauma Therapy

If you have experienced a traumatic event or ongoing trauma and are struggling to cope, trauma therapy may be beneficial for you. Some common signs that indicate the need for trauma therapy include:

  • Feeling constantly on edge or easily startled
  • Avoiding situations or activities that remind you of the traumatic event(s)
  • Difficulty regulating your emotions
  • Intrusive thoughts or memories of the traumatic event(s)
  • Changes in sleep patterns, appetite, or energy levels
  • Difficulty maintaining relationships or feeling disconnected from others

These are just a few examples, and everyone’s experience with trauma is unique. It’s important to listen to your own feelings and seek help if you feel overwhelmed or unable to cope.

How Trauma Therapy Can Help

The goal of trauma therapy is to help participants process and heal from the effects of their traumatic experience(s). This can involve a variety of approaches, but some commonly used techniques include:

  • EMDR – This therapy involves using eye movements to help reprocess traumatic memories and decrease emotional distress.
  • CBT – This approach focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors related to the trauma.
  • Mindfulness techniques – Practicing mindfulness can help clients cope with difficult emotions, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.

Building healthy coping mechanisms and learning to regulate emotions are also important aspects of trauma therapy. By working with a therapist, clients can develop skills to manage their symptoms and improve their overall quality of life.
