Trauma Therapy 

What is Trama? 

Many people think that trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) only occur among people who have gone to war or been the victims of violent assault. Rather, trauma is any event that disrupts our sense of well-being and stability. Trauma can be a bad breakup, witnessing a car crash, or suddenly losing a loved one. Trauma can even occur second-hand when someone close to you is traumatized.

What are the symptoms? 

  • Shock, denial, or disbelief.

  • Confusion, difficulty concentrating.

  • Anger, irritability, mood swings.

  • Anxiety and fear.

  • Guilt, shame, self-blame.

  • Withdrawing from others.

  • Feeling sad or hopeless.

  • Feeling disconnected or numb.

How can Trauma Therapy help?

At Mindology, you’ll first gain a comprehensive understanding of trauma and how it has affected your life. You’ll learn the mechanisms of trauma- and stressors- related disorder; also understand the way that it disrupts your nervous system’s ability to go back to baseline. You’ll learn how trauma affects your relationships, health, and behaviors. Then you’ll learn ways to reconnect with your body, your feelings, and those closest to you.

We specialized in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR),which aims to facilitate a reprocessing of the disturbing experiences, optimizing individual’s capacity to respond more deceptively to present and future life demands. 

 

Our trained EMDR therapist will help you

  • to understand presenting problem(s) and identify and process relevant memories that are foundational to your current difficulties. 

  • to strengthen access to adaptive memory networks of experiences in order to optimize your ability to respond deceptively to current and future life demands

  • To weaken dysfunctional memory networks, minimizing their negative impact so you are less likely to respond inappropriately to life situations

  • To address developmental deficits and cultivate needed skills, behaviors and adaptive beliefs about self and other, optimizing your capacity to respond spontaneously and authentically

  • To maintain your safety and stability while working to achieve effective treatment results that are generalization

  • To help you come into an authentic sense of self, unencumbered by the impacts of trauma, and restore or develop a sense of well-being and life purpose.
