Trauma, whether due to a single incident or repeated childhood exposure, often leaves a legacy of significant emotional, psychological and physiological symptoms, many of which may feel totally unrelated to each other.
Many individuals with a history of trauma have received a number of different mental and physical health diagnoses without any awareness that their symptoms are related to the impact of the original trauma and the associated dysregulated nervous system that develops as a result.
Trauma therapies have developed significantly over the past 10-20 years. Originally, the focus of therapy was to recall and revisit the original traumatic experience, without any awareness that this was both dysregulating and re-traumatising.
The most effective forms of trauma therapy are more focused on regulating and integrating the nervous system of the individual than they are on the story, while at the same time supporting clients to develop the resources in their lives.
Whilst there are many different types of trauma therapy, the most effective treatment involves the creation of a bespoke integrative approach that meets the specific needs of the individual.
