Trauma Counselling Northern Rivers, NSW
Traumatic events can be very difficult to deal with. They can leave a mark on us emotionally, mentally, and physically. If you’ve been through a traumatic event, you might feel like you’re not the same person as before. Trauma counselling can help you work through these feelings and start to heal.
Trauma counselling can help you make sense of what happened, work through your feelings and start to heal. It can be hard to talk about what happened, but it is often a very important part of the healing process.
When we experience a traumatic event, our brain is flooded with chemicals and hormones that can cause us to feel fear, anxiety, and stress. This is a normal reaction that helps us to survive in dangerous situations.
But sometimes, these feelings don’t go away after the danger has passed. This can happen if the event was very stressful or if we have been through multiple traumas.
The feeling of being “stuck” can be very frustrating and overwhelming. But there is hope. With counselling, you can start to understand and work through your feelings so that you can start to feel better.
What Happens in Trauma Counselling?
Trauma Counselling Byron Shire
In trauma counselling, you will work with a counsellor to explore the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are affecting you. You will also learn about how trauma can affect people and what you can do to cope with the symptoms.
Trauma counselling is a safe place for you to talk about your experiences and start to heal. While family and friends can be a great support, they may not always understand what you’re going through. A counsellor will provide you with the time and space to work through your experiences at your own pace.
How Anxiety Counselling Can Help
Trauma counselling can help you in many ways, including:
- Dealing with your thoughts and feelings: It’s natural for people to avoid thinking about a traumatic event or to try to push away the memories. But this can actually make the symptoms worse. In counselling, you will learn how to deal with your thoughts and feelings in a healthy way.
- Learning about trauma: Many people don’t understand why they feel the way they do after a traumatic event. Counselling can help you understand how trauma affects people and what you can do to cope with the symptoms.
- Improving your relationships: The stress of trauma can affect your relationships with family, friends, and co-workers. Counselling can help you improve these relationships and communication skills.
- Coping with triggers: Triggers are anything that reminds you of a traumatic event. They can be sights, sounds, smells, or even certain words. When you work with a counsellor, you will learn how to identify and cope with triggers in a healthy way.
- Finding hope: Trauma can make you feel like things will never get better. But counselling can help you see that there is hope for the future. You can start to heal the wounds of trauma and move on with your life.
