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

What Does Trauma Look Like? How Does It Feel?

Traumatic experiences are distressing and/or disturbing. Oftentimes, they have a negative psychological impact on those who witness them. Traumatic experiences include physical or mental abuse, violence, the death of a loved one, natural disasters, bullying, military combat, and more.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) lists the following symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which often develops as the result of trauma:

  • Distressing memories of the trauma
  • Flashbacks
  • Difficulty falling and/or staying asleep
  • Loss of interest in day-to-day activities
  • Detachment from others and one’s everyday life
  • Lack of happiness and fulfillment
  • Reckless behavior
  • Psychological distress when exposed to triggers

Consider reaching out to Thriveworks in Norwalk. You must talk to a professional about what you’ve been through, so they can help you manage your PTSD symptoms and heal from your trauma.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

Trauma therapy combines different therapy techniques to help people deal with their trauma and manage the harmful symptoms that might transpire. Trauma therapy can help you to:

  • Accept the traumatic event that you have experienced

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
