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 Red Bank 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 Red Bank, NJ 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 Red Bank, NJ will continue to provide care for as long as necessary to help clients meet their therapeutic needs.

Need more help deciding?

Trauma can take many different forms. Emotional, sexual, or physical- no one deserves to go through it. Thriveworks Red Bank trauma counseling wants you to know that what happened to you was not your fault. You didn’t choose to be subject to a trauma or the psychological harm that follows. What happened to you isn’t fair, and we wish we could make all the pain go away easy-peasy. Unfortunately, we can’t, but we can stand by your side and give you the knowledge, tools, and encouragement you need to heal from trauma and build a positive, healthy life.

            Trauma creates changes you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose.”

Michelle Rosental

When you’re stuck in the aftermath of sexual abuse, emotional abuse, or a physical trauma, it can feel like there is no way out. Left unchecked, trauma can worm its way into our work, family, friends, diet, sleep, happiness, dreams, and so much more.

But there is hope. There is a way to heal.

Trauma therapy in Red Bank is just one modality for healing. Our goal is to help you flourish into the person you want to be, not just survive the life you were given. Because of this, we are an empathetic and nonjudgmental counseling space for our clients to come and be themselves- healing from their past and preparing for their future.

Healing from a trauma often means opening up old wounds. It isn’t easy. Pain, anxiety, anger, and hopelessness are all possibilities when undergoing counseling. But while fighting trauma is hard, it is far from impossible. The trauma counselors at Red Bank are here so you don’t have to go through it alone.

For more information, or to schedule an appointment today, give us a call at 732-606-4469.

What Are Some Symptoms of Trauma?

Trauma is often so invasive in our lives because of how our brains react to it. Everyone will respond to trauma differently, and so everyone’s healing process will be different as well. Trauma Therapy in Red Bank individualizes each counseling session, so it is unique to you and your goals.

Our brains are shaped and molded by the trauma in our life. The highly detailed organ that processes millions of bits of information each second will do what it has to in order to adapt and survive. When it comes to processing trauma, that might mean suppressing memories and building new neuro pathways. This results in a lot of the symptoms of trauma found below.

But the brain is truly a wonderful organ. Just as how trauma shaped it, we can shape it back. We can undo the old, unhealthy pathways and create new, healthy pathways. Trauma never breaks anyone. It remolds their brain for a time, but we can mold it back.

This will take time and energy! Thriveworks Red Bank moves at your pace. We aren’t on a deadline; our goal is to help you heal. So, if you recognize some of these symptoms in yourself or a loved one, reaching out can help:

  • Recurrent, painful dreams
  • Flashbacks
  • Emotional numbness
  • Jittery/always on edge
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Hesitancy to open up to other people, even those you trusted before the trauma
  • Persistent fear, horror, anger, guilt, or shame
  • Diminished interest in activities you previously enjoy
  • Difficulty feeling positive emotions
  • A general feeling of detachment from the world or yourself
  • Continuous feeling of discomfort in stomach and gut

Trauma and the possible result of PTSD looks differently in everyone, so if you don’t resonate with any of these symptoms that’s okay! Your experiences are still valid, and you still deserve a happy, healthy future. The professional trauma counselors in Red Bank can bridge the gap between your pain and your future through research backed, client-focused therapy.

How Can We Help?

At Thriveworks Red Bank Trauma counseling, you are the focus of every session. Afterall, you are the only person who can make true change in your life. It would be silly not to mold the counseling session to fit your lifestyle, personality, doubts, symptoms, and goals.

While we will always walk with you as you heal, there are some tried-and-true techniques that can help us get to where we are going faster. They include:

  • Trauma symptom and effect education
  • Practicing personal, effective coping skills (relaxation exercises, anger-management techniques, guided imagery, mindfulness, etc.)
  • Support in managing a healthy sleep, exercise, and diet schedule
  • Work through guilt, self-blame, and other destructive emotions that could be surrounding the trauma.
  • Heal the fear and anxiety still present. Unaddressed emotions are one of the biggest culprits for trauma symptoms.
  • Address any comorbid struggles such as anxiety or depression.

What happened to you is not your fault. You didn’t choose the deed or the symptoms. You are living the best you can- and for that we respect and admire you. Your courage and perseverance are truly amazing. Even just reading this is proof of the strength in you. So, let’s get you the freedom you deserve. Your present doesn’t belong to your past.

Call Thriveworks Red Bank for more information or to schedule an appointment today. We can be reached at 732-606-4469.

Zack Diamond Drake has some of the best ears around. If there is something dragging you down or simply holding you back, this individual will not only help you work through whatever it is, but help you to think through the process yourself. This, in my opinion, is the best kind of counseling there is. I would highly recommend his services.
