Trauma occurs as a response to disturbing events, and can leave an individual with low self esteem, anxiety, depression, and a feeling of being unable to cope. Trauma can also lead to other mental health conditions such as addictions or eating disorders.
There are a number of different types of trauma, such as acute trauma, complex trauma, and chronic trauma. Acute trauma is when an individual experiences a one-off traumatic incident, such as the death of a loved one, being involved in or witnessing a violent act or a serious accident, or a single occurrence of abuse. Chronic trauma occurs when a person is exposed to multiple traumatic events over an extended period of time, and complex trauma occurs when a person experiences multiple and varied traumatic events.
Trauma can leave a person feeling as if they may never be able to move on from what has happened to them, and get back to living the life they lived prior to the traumatic event. We’re here to assure you that with the right support and approach to treatment, you can overcome trauma and return to a happier, healthier life.
