Trauma occurs when a distressing event overwhelms us, and takes away our ability to cope with what is happening. Trauma is often accompanied by anxiety and depression. For someone dealing with trauma, the anxiety they feel does not come from an unknown source.
It comes from an automatic physiological response to what has actually, already happened. The brain and body have already lived through a “worst case scenario”.
If you have ever felt this way, seek the help you deserve. Trauma symptoms can be very challenging to live with. Counselling offers a safe space where healing can take place. Get in touch today.
Even if other people have experienced ‘worse’
Even if someone else who when through the same experience doesn’t feel debilitated by it
Even if it ‘could have been avoided’
Even if it happened a long time ago
Even if no one knows
Your trauma is real and valid and you deserve a space to talk about it
It isn’t desperate or pathetic or attention-seeking
It’s inconceivably brave
And regardless of the magnitude of your struggle, you’re allowed to take care of yourself by processing and unloading some of the pain you carry.
Your pain matters
Your experience matters
Nothing and no one can take that away
Seek the help you deserve.
