Experience Freedom From Distress and the Impact of Trauma Symptoms
Stress and trauma can impede our a sense of balance and equilibrium. To understand how this happens, lets clarify what we mean when we say trauma. Here we are talking about an experience, or a set of experiences, that are extremely difficult to bear and to manage. Trauma is something that overwhelms us, leaves us feeling out of control, and often very lost and alone. Similarly, stress can impede our ability to enjoy life and make healthy, balanced choices.
Trauma informed therapy, whether for PTSD, Dissociative Disorders, or Distress, seeks to restore balance by addressing the whole person in the healing process. In therapy the body, the emotional self, the mind, and spirit are all incorporated. This approach to therapy is a healing journey designed to:
- Increase coping skills to adjust effectively to life’s stressors
- Increase self-awareness
- Enhance relationships and sense of connection to others
- Find ways to regain a sense of meaning and hope
