Trauma & Abuse
Abuse can affect anyone from all walks of life, but trauma isn’t a life sentence. It can take the form of physical abuse, emotional bullying, sexual abuse, neglect, or self-harm. An individual who has gone through a traumatic experience may be struggle with upsetting emotions, frightening memories, or a sense of constant danger. They may feel numb, disconnected, and unable to trust others.
By learning about the various types of abuse and what you can do to stop or avoid it, you can make a massive difference in your own or someone else’s life. Recovering from a traumatic event takes time, and everyone heals at their own pace. Therapy focuses on processing trauma-related memories and feelings, regulating emotions, and re-building the ability to trust people.
