Traumatic experiences affect thousands of people every year, and it can be difficult to know if you need trauma therapy. Trauma is an emotional response caused by a distressing or overwhelming event, and it can manifest in physical and mental wounds. Trauma counseling is a type of talk therapy in which a professional counselor helps you manage your emotional response to a traumatic event. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may benefit from trauma therapy: anger, irritability, or mood swings; traumatic images or memories lodged in the mind; insomnia or frightening dreams and nightmares about the event; confusion or difficulty concentrating.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is much more common than people think, and it can be caused by extreme situations or everyday events. Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are two forms of trauma counseling that can help you overcome your mental health problems and live a full life with care and support.
