Trauma is often thought of as life-threatening events like combat, natural disasters, and physical or sexual abuse. These events are often referred to as “big t” traumas, which are easy to identify. Others, which are called “small t”, traumas, are often overlooked or minimized and the impacted may not be aware of the effects. These “small t traumas” can be extremely distressing, such as infidelity, bullying, emotional abuse, divorce, complex grief, life changes, or sudden life changes. These can lead to anxiety, depression, anger, and disconnection as well as other negative effects.
Trauma can have a negative impact on all aspects of your life if it is not treated. The most common causes of PTSD symptoms are the “Big T” traumas. People suffering from PTSD often experience distressing and overwhelming symptoms. These include flashbacks to the past that can make the past seem present. In an attempt to cope, trauma sufferers might resort to self-destructive and reckless behavior, such as addiction.
Low Self Esteem, Depression, and Anxiety
Not everyone develops PTSD, but everyone can experience trauma symptoms. Small traumatic events can have a significant cumulative effect. A lingering feeling depressed that is difficult to shake, anxiety and stress levels that are high, as well as a negative outlook on ourselves and feeling stuck, can all be symptoms. These symptoms are often rooted in negative life experiences that have shaped core beliefs that can limit our ability to heal. These core beliefs include “I’m not enough”, “I don’t have the right skills”, “I feel weak”, “I can’t do it”, “I will fail”, and many others. These beliefs can limit our ability to connect to our inner resources and resilience that offer a path to healing.
Treatments for Trauma
Although there are many ways to treat trauma, I’ve found that Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), and Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy offer deep healing potential with very few sessions. Both approaches can be used to help clients overcome trauma’s devastating effects and make positive changes in their lives.
EMDR is a special form of psychotherapy that helps to reduce negative emotions associated with traumatic memories. This method was first discovered in the 1980s and is used by EMDR therapists around the globe. Its basic principle is that problems occur when an experience is not properly processed. This can lead to maladaptive responses. These memories are processed and adaptive emotions added to the neural network can bring about positive change.
Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy allows clients to connect with their inner guidance to find the root cause of their problem. The guided session takes the client to a calmer place, where they can heal trauma and alleviate symptoms.
These highly effective treatments can help anyone suffering from severe traumas. To find the best treatment for you, schedule an appointment.
“I’ve found that victims of even the most severe trauma can find relief and live a happier, more fulfilling life.”
