Trauma and Abuse
Sexual, physical, emotional or psychological abuse and neglect, whether experienced in childhood or as an adult, can impact on all aspects of your life, including work, relationships and health, and your enjoyment of everyday activities. You may find yourself feeling disconnected, numb, or unable to trust others. You may feel anxiety and anger, or a constant threat of danger, accompanied by frightening flashbacks or nightmares, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about painful and often traumatic experiences.
Most people who go through terrifying experiences have difficulty adjusting and coping with them. You do not have to face the symptoms of trauma and abuse alone. Therapy can help you explore and process the impact of your painful experiences, take charge of your life, and support you in achieving lasting change.
