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

Need more help deciding?

Trauma is something no one should have to face. Sadly, many people endure trauma at some point in their lives, and in the time after, will have to learn to deal with the aftermath. It can be difficult to know how to help yourself after going through a traumatic event, but a great place to start is by seeing a trauma therapist.

The experienced and knowledgeable trauma therapists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Lubbock are eager to address your needs. Whether you choose to see them in-person or online via video conferencing, they can provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to process your experiences and learn how to overcome them. Our therapists will also work with you to create the right treatment plan for your personality and symptoms so that you feel supported and understood.

How Do I Find Help for My Trauma?

A great way to start your journey of healing is to talk to a mental health professional. By telling them about your trauma, symptoms, and the effects they have on your life, a therapist or psychiatric professional will be able to assess your situation, form a diagnosis, and suggest a plan regarding what you should work through together as you move forward.

If you’re wondering how to find a trauma therapist, you can find one today by contacting Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry in Lubbock, TX. Whether you book an appointment online using our booking tool or call and speak to one of our scheduling specialists, our trauma therapists are here to help you.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

The goal of a trauma therapist is to guide you through processing your trauma so that you can move through life feeling safe, secure, and happy. Whether you are dealing with trauma or PTSD, the therapeutic process for treating them is quite similar. Common approaches used in trauma therapy include: 

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): An approach looks into one’s thought processes in order to see how they are connected to one’s feelings and behaviors. Through that, one can differentiate the helpful thoughts and patterns from those that might be more harmful. 
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): This approach uses eye movement exercises to help patients remember past traumatic events in order to help them move through and process what happened to them.
  • Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy: This type of therapy works to validate one’s emotions regarding their trauma while also noticing and eliminating negative thought patterns that cause shame, guilt, or anger.
  • Prolonged exposure: For those who’s trauma is associated with a common place or action, this approach involves gradually exposing oneself to situations, feelings, and memories related to one’s trauma with the goal of showing someone that they are not necessarily dangerous and don’t need to be avoided. For example, someone who has trauma or PTSD from a car crash might ride or drive in a car.

Advantages to Online Trauma Therapy

Online therapy gives you increased access to and flexibility with your therapy. Since there’s no need to come to an office, you save time commuting, and you can have your session in a familiar environment, such as your home. Online therapy also cuts down on wait times, making it even easier to see your provider, and saves you money on travel and other expenses like childcare.
