Trauma Counseling – Therapists, Coaches and Therapists in Peachtree City

Trauma. Just the word alone conjures up uncomfortable feelings.

But what exactly is trauma and what makes it different from a generally negative experience? What makes something truly, or even clinically, “traumatic”?

True trauma occurs when an incident or series of incidents shatters one’s feelings of trust and safety. It is both an emotional and physical response resulting from the limbic system’s high alert status. The word “trauma” is derived from the Greek word meaning “wound,” which accurately describes the profound feelings of pain, anguish and disruption that accompany this phenomenon.

Main Causes of Trauma

Many situations can cause trauma, and it’s important to note that trauma is defined by the person experiencing it. It really is highly individualized.

Common causes include:

  • The breakup of a serious relationship
  • Abuse (physical, emotional and sexual)
  • Accidents, injuries and surgery
  • Sudden death
  • Discovery of illness or debilitating condition
  • Witnessing or experiencing violence
  • Humiliating and deeply disappointing experience
  • Extensive bullying
  • Natural disasters and acts of terror

Several factors can increase the likelihood of a traumatic response, including previous trauma, lack of support and ongoing stress.

But There is Hope

Specifically targeted professional therapy is proven to reduce both the short term and long-term effects of trauma. The team at Thriveworks Counseling and Coaching in Peachtree City is ready to help.

A game changer for me!!

Without going on an on, but I may - - I feel that Stacey Franklin, my counselor, is literally the best kept se...Read more

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
