Traumatic events are not always violent and
can be anywhere between moving
somewhere new to being a part of a natural
disaster or war. Children can be effected by
evens such as moving schools, a divorce, or
a hospital experience. Everyone can be
uniquely impacted by stressful events that
can become trauma during or after the
event and everyone can react differently.
Some symptoms that can come from trauma
are nightmares, flashbacks, irritability, and panic reactions to noises or smells that remind the individual of the event. These types of symptoms can be very upsetting and can cause significant disruption to someone’s daily life.
At Lifegrowth, we work with each person on how the source of the trauma has impacted their lives. We utilize multiple techniques that can help the individual manage and overcome their disruptive symptoms as well as begin processing through the memories that may be causing distress. We strive to sensitively hold each person’s experience in a way that can provide a feeling of safety and comfort so that healing can take place. If you or someone you know has been affected by trauma, please contact us today to set up an appointment and begin the path towards healing.
