Holistic Psychotherapy The Medicine & The Movement
Effects of Trauma
Traumatic experiences can leave us feeling overwhelmed and disoriented. Whether the event happened years ago or just the other day, our body, mind and spirit can still remember and at times, be triggered.
We may experience feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. We might feel lonely and disconnected from others. It may seem like everyone and everything has moved on while we are still hoping and waiting for the emotions from the trauma to pass. Unhealed trauma affects every area of our lives. When we have unhealed trauma, engaging in everyday events might be challenging. We may be compelled to isolate which can exacerbate the loneliness and increase the symptoms of trauma which include feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression, overwhelming fear and phobias.
Overlapping traumatic events can impact our nervous system locking us into habitual patterns that prevent us from being happy, joyous and free. However, we need not despair. There is help and support. You are not alone, many are finding relief by being in a caring, supportive, self-reflective environment.
Somatic Experiencing group psychotherapy for survivors of trauma, offer individuals the opportunity to come together under the guidance of an experienced Trauma Therapist, to learn to identify the neurobiological impact of traumatic experiences. In a safe and supportive environment, participants learn to identify common habitual threat responses (internal responses to perceived threats developed due to unhealed trauma), access life-changing resources and how best to regulate their own nervous system
Through mindfulness/body awareness, members learn to identify the neuro-biological impact of trauma and address many of the common symptoms; stress, anxiety, panic and fear. Managing the symptoms of trauma is possible. No one has to suffer alone. This group focuses on specific tools to free you from the patterns created and developed by traumatic experiences.
This is an ongoing group. A six-month commitment is required for each member. Members are required to schedule quarterly individual sessions with a therapist. Intimacy develops among members followed by greater vulnerability as members begin to feel known. Long term group experiences support personal growth, opportunities to try new behaviors and change old ones.
You owe it to yourself to explore the healing potential of being part of a Somatic Experiencing Psychotherapy Group for Trauma Survivors. Group therapy can be engaged as a supplement to individual psychotherapy or as a primary therapeutic intervention.
