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.
