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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville, FL will continue to provide care for as long as necessary to help clients meet their therapeutic needs.

Need more help deciding?

Have you ever been a victim of domestic abuse? Have you ever survived a natural disaster like a hurricane or a tornado? Were you bullied in grade school? Are you bullied now? These traumatic experiences can prove disturbing to one’s life. In fact, by definition, trauma is a disturbing or distressing event that causes psychological harm.

“There is no timestamp on trauma. There isn’t a formula that you can insert yourself into to get from horror to healed. Be patient. Take up space. Let your journey be the brain.” —Dawn Serra

It’s vital that trauma victims process their experience properly and receive the support they need to heal—especially if they show symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. If you have experienced trauma, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL to work with a trauma or PTSD therapist. These professionals specialize in helping trauma victims process and heal from their experience.

Do I Have PTSD? What Are Common PTSD Symptoms?

If you aren’t sure what classifies as trauma, trauma is a distressing experience that has a psychological impact on the victim. Examples include those listed above—domestic abuse, natural disasters, bullying—as well as the death of a loved one, mental or emotional abuse, and more. Those who witness trauma might struggle to resume their day to day activities. For example, one might find concentrating at work or school nearly impossible.

Someone who has experienced trauma might have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) if they exhibit a specific set of symptoms of a month or longer. These symptoms include:

  • He or she has distressing nightmares and/or flashbacks
  • They avoid places and things that remind them of their trauma
  • He or she experiences sleep disturbances, loses their ability to concentrate, and/or becomes irritable

Trauma can cause one to feel disconnected from true life, lose interest in the activities they once enjoyed, and even engage in risky behavior. Also, they might feel guilty, mad, or afraid. Exact presentation of symptoms can vary significantly from person to person.

How Can Trauma Therapy or PTSD Therapy Help?

Trauma therapy and PTSD therapy are specifically designed to for trauma victims. It helps these individuals to process their trauma, cope with their PTSD symptoms, and manage any damage left behind. The main goal is to help clients find happiness and live a normal life again.

Just as the PTSD symptoms can vary, the layout of trauma therapy or PTSD therapy can vary too! The right approach for you will depend on your specific experience, needs, and goals for therapy. That being said, there are several common approaches:

  1. Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TFCBT)
  2. Psychodynamic therapy
  3. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

If you have experienced trauma—abuse, bullying, the loss of a loved one, or another form of trauma—remember that it is incredibly important for you to process what has happened to you, including all of the emotions that come with that experience. A trauma therapist at Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL can offer you the right assistance, guidance, and support.

I’m 3 times better, because of the instructions and medication. I never was a medicine, trusting person. But after seeing my Psychiatrist, and him explaining the benefits, I trusted the process. And thank God I did.!

I’ve been dealing with a few stressers before reaching out for help in the psychology space. I reached out mainly because the pain being caused in my relationship. Sarah welcomed me into her network here with such professionalism I felt instantly comfortable with having open and candid conversation. Since then my life has gone through and still going through major changes some good and some bad. I would like Thriveworks and Sarah know that this couldn’t have been a better time for someone like Sarah to open her door for me and coach me through some of things I’ve been going thru and point me in the right direction of how to be the best version of a person I can be. You can tell she is passionate about her work and cares deeply for clients like myself. If there’s ever a time where someone I know needs to talk to someone I will recommend Thriveworks and specifically Sarah if it’s possible. Sarah, keep up the good work. You’re making a positive difference in my life.

I have been so well taken care of with Thriveworks! From the efficient sign-up process, to my outstanding therapist, Vanessa Cumber. Vanessa takes the time to really understand the big events in my life. She helps me reflect, review and challenge my own views about things, when I go to a negative place and get stuck there. Vanessa helps me get to the bottom of why I am so hard on myself. She is teaching me to become my own strongest advocate, instead of staying in my default, of harshest critic. Vanessa has the patience and fortitude of a Saint. I am truly blessed by her, and everyone at Thriveworks! You all are making the world a kinder place!
