Have you witnessed a difficult or traumatic experience?  Has tragedy taken you by surprise?  Or maybe someone you know has experiences an extremely difficult circumstance and now you just can help but wonder if something like that might happen to you.  If you feel like this, or you feel as though a tragic event has left you “stuck” and you can’t seem to move on, you may be suffering from trauma.

Understanding Trauma

When we experience trauma, it effects our brains in such a way that it changes our responses to stress, danger, anxiety, and fear.   It raises the level of norepinephrine in the brain, which can cause:

  • Hypervigilance
  • Disrupted sleep patterns
  • Hyperarousal
  • Increased wakefulness
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Increase in blood pressure

If left untreated, trauma can lead to:

  • Clinical depression
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic pain
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Sleep problems
  • Lack of focus
  • Fear or paranoia
  • Difficulty maintaining relationships

If you’ve experienced any of these things, it may be time to consider how trauma therapy could benefit you.  Trained and experienced trauma therapists are available to help to understand your trauma and learn how to heal from trauma. (803) 477-3736

What is Trauma Therapy?

While many people who experience trauma are able to move forward in life with few, if any, setbacks, others struggle to move beyond the trauma.  Columbia Trauma Therapy can help you process the trauma you’ve experienced so you can heal.  If you’ve already been diagnosed with PTSD, we can help you, too.  There are many treatment options for trauma.  Some of these options include:

  • Talk therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT)
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Hypnotherapy

Trauma therapy helps you become more aware of your trauma. It also helps you understand the triggers that activate your trauma symptoms.  Therapy for trauma provides the necessary coping skills needed to manage your thoughts, anxiety, emotions, and fear.
