Trauma is an emotional and physical response to a terrible or life-threatening event. After a traumatic experience, the world can feel unpredictable and unsafe. Sometimes, this feeling passes with time, and with support from our loved ones, life goes back to normal.
Sometimes though, it is harder to get back on your feet. Fear, sadness, guilt and anger are all common reactions. But, when continued for too long, they can leave you feeling helpless and exhausted. Distressing memories, images or sounds may replay over and over in your mind. The effects of trauma start to creep into everyday life. You feel overwhelmed and trapped, while your family or friends feel helpless. But there is a way out, and we are ready to support you with effective trauma treatment.
