Starting Trauma therapy

What is Trauma therapy?

Trauma therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on treating the psychological impact of traumatic events on individuals. Trauma therapy helps people process and heal from their trauma by guiding them through their trauma in a compassionate and supportive way, allowing clients to feel the full scope of what happened to them and eventually move on from the event(s). This process helps people who have experienced trauma find ways to feel safe in their life.

How does Trauma therapy work?

Trauma therapy will often require individuals to walk through their experiences in a controlled and compassionate setting (unless the client has a dissociative disorder) so that they can fully process the event, an activity that will allow them to move on from what happened and feel safe again. Thriveworks Boca Raton therapists will also help clients learn healthy coping mechanisms to deal with their symptoms outside of therapy.

Is Trauma therapy conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks trauma counseling in Boca Raton, FL is conducted both in person and online through online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Trauma therapy last?

If an individual is working through a single event that occurred during adulthood, they may only need a few months of treatment. However, in instances of childhood trauma or repeated traumatic events, therapy may continue over the course of years. Trauma therapy usually ends when the client believes they have met their therapeutic goals, however long that takes to occur. Thriveworks therapists in Boca Raton, FL will continue to provide care for as long as necessary to help clients meet their therapeutic needs.

Need more help deciding?

When someone experiences “trauma,” this means that they have been exposed to a distressing event, which has a psychological impact on their wellbeing. Trauma victims can go on to develop harmful physical and mental symptoms including insomnia or other sleep issues, panic attacks, nightmares, loneliness, and much more. There are many different events that can be traumatic in nature, including a loved one’s death, physical abuse, bullying, and witnessing a natural disaster. These can have a long term or even lasting impact on the victim.

“Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing creates change you do choose.” –Michele Rosenthal

After an individual has had a traumatic experience, they might struggle to get back to the life they’re used to: they might feel uninterested in work, spending time with loved ones, and engaging in other activities they used to look forward to. Or, they might feel so distracted by their trauma that they no longer enjoy these activities. Also, victims of trauma often suffer with feelings of hopelessness after their experience.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

As we mentioned, trauma victims can develop a multitude of harmful symptoms, including difficulty sleeping, nightmares, panic attacks, social isolation, and feelings of hopelessness. These symptoms, as well as the traumatic event alone, can make one feel unhappy. The good news, though, is that there are professionals who dedicate their work to helping these individuals heal from their trauma. Here are a few important goals in trauma therapy:

  • Better manage symptoms
  • Acquire new coping skills
  • Feel happy and hopeful about life again

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective form of treatment for trauma and PTSD. It allows one to correct harmful thinking patterns, offers them a safe space for talking through the traumatic experience, and provides them with the guidance and support needed to heal properly. Here are a few techniques your trauma therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Boca Raton near Delray Beach might use to help you:

  1. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): With EMDR, the individual recalls their trauma while they focus on something else such as the tapping of the therapist’s hands or a flashing light. The mission here is to get to a place where you can think positive thoughts when reminded of your trauma.
  2. Prolonged Exposure: Prolonged exposure can help you to confront triggers that bring back memories or symptoms of your trauma. Your trauma therapist or psychologist might first work on teaching you helpful breathing techniques to implement when you experience anxiety.

Your Boca Raton trauma therapists will create a treatment plan just for you: after they get to know you—your unique experience, your specific needs, and your personal goals for therapy—they will customize your plan. If you have witnessed a traumatic event, make sure you heal properly. Set up an appointment to work with a trauma therapist at Thriveworks Boca Raton in Palm Beach, FL.

Pamela really helped me through some difficult issues; she helped me to understand the people in my life and how to interact with them and understand why they are how to understand them. With that knowledge, I am better able to interact. It is very helpful to have someone I can share everything with. And Pamela is that person for me.

My husband and I sought counseling due to several significant issues in our marriage. We were distraught and on the verge of divorce. Jeannie's approach to marriage counseling led us through a process that changed my perspective on my husband's actual needs and his to my needs. We didn't hear what the other was truly saying! I would highly recommend Jeannie to work with any couple from minor issues to major issues in their marriage.
