All of our clinicians take a trauma-informed approach to the assessment and treatment of mental health disorders. As such, not only are they passionate but also highly trained and experienced in the psychological treatment of trauma-related mental health disorders.
Counselling for Trauma-related issues can vary greatly depending on the type of trauma you have experienced. At Breathe Psychology we take a whole body approach to the assessment and treatment of trauma and provide a range of therapeutic approaches to complement your recovery.
The most common type of talk therapy for trauma related mental health conditions is a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) called Trauma-focused CBT, however other CBT-like approaches to trauma treatment such as Schema Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) can be equally effective.
This can help if:
- You have sudden and unprediactable fluctuations in mood
- You feel like you are stuck in the past and unable to move forward
- You feel jumpy or on edge
- You have difficulty trusting people
- You avoid reminders of the traumatic events
- You have intrusive thoughts or nightmares about events from the past
Trauma presents differently in a lot of us, some include:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Complex Trauma
- Sexual Abuse
- Anger Management
- Substance Use and Dependence
- Dissociative Disorders
