Trauma is a human response to a deeply distressing event. Traumas from years ago can profoundly impact your life today, your relationships, your mood and your everyday decisions.
People tend to think only of extreme situations as “traumatic”, such as being subject to violence or a near-death accident. However in my experience, a wide range of life events can cause a traumatic response. Relocating to a new area, the end of a relationship, and loss of a loved one are only a few examples.
In our new age of research, we know that trauma not only changes the way you see the world, it also creates physiological changes in your body.
When helping clients resolve past trauma , I utilize a blend of different interventions:
- A mind-body trauma reprocessing intervention called Neuro Emotional Technique
- Guided imagery/visualization
- Internal Family Systems
- Psychoeducation about the trauma response
