Sometimes things that have happened in our pasts continue to affect our presents in painful ways.
We might feel intense shame or guilt about things that have happened, even many years later.
Maybe you become frustrated or angry with yourself for the feelings and reactions you experience.
On top of that, you may not believe there’s anyone you can talk to about what you’ve been through, and how things are now.
Receiving help from a therapist with a trauma-informed approach can help you heal and begin shaping the life you want for yourself going forward. For instance, evidence-based treatments like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) have been shown to significantly reduce the pain associated with disturbing thoughts and memories.
If this rings true for you, I hope you’ll get in touch so we talk about how I can help.
