Trauma can manifest itself in a number of ways. Whether you have experienced trauma throughout your life or went through a single event that you can’t leave behind, we can help you in therapy.
It’s important to remember you’re not alone, and that many people have experienced different types of abuse, grief, loss, domestic violence, and more. You do not need to feel ashamed, and asking for help is the first step towards lasting recovery.
What causes trauma?
When we experience a situation that shocks our system, sometimes our brain can’t process the event in a healthy way. These events can become a large source of anxiety for us, and cause varying symptoms as our mind tries to cope.
At times, we don’t always know that trauma is the root of the problem. Sometimes we don’t know that an experience has been traumatic for us, or we lock away those feelings because they’re difficult to unpack. If you’re feeling like you’re stuck, losing control, and that you can’t cope with life’s daily stresses, trauma may be the unexpected culprit.
Common sources of trauma
- Domestic Violence
- Severe illness or Injury
- Witnessing Violence
- Natural disasters
Please remember that trauma can be caused by many different scenarios. These are some examples, and if you do not relate to the causes above, that does not mean you aren’t experiencing trauma.

- Denial/ disbelief
- Intrusive thoughts
