Hello, Im glad you are here. How are you?
If you have found this page, its likely you are looking for support for trauma. Psychological trauma is harm which occurs as a result of a distressing event, or events. The emotional distress is too overwhelming to cope with.
Trauma can be caused by a single distressing experience or recurring events of being overwhelmed, harmed or in danger. It may be childhood trauma, or something that has happened to you as an adult.
Your trauma is valid.
Many people feel that their response is an overreaction, and feel a sense of guilt, shame or worthlessness. And I understand how difficult that feels.
You might be feeling lost and out of control right now, with feelings of distress, shame, anger and anxiety. You could be feeling preoccupied with traumatic events that have happened to you, or experiencing flashbacks, and struggling to not let them overwhelm you.
You might feel embarrassed to open up about what you’re really going through, even to family and friends. Counselling can help you to explore what’s bothering you. Its important to know that what you are experiencing is normal, and its okay to ask for help.
You may be feeling:
- like you cant control your emotions, and are scared that people will notice.
- like its really difficult to get close to people, even those you love.
- worried that things will never get any better.
- that people would be better off without you.
- the need to use drugs and/or alcohol to numb your emotions.
- preoccupied with memories of traumatic events
Even if you are feeling overwhelmed and confused about how to cope, confidential trauma counselling can help.
