Treatment for Trauma
Trauma is complicated. It can be obvious, with a clear cause, and symptoms that seem to make sense. Or, trauma can be buried beneath depression, anxiety, and anger, without any recognizable origin. The causal event may have occurred a week ago, or half a century in the past. PTSD is what it is called when someone has flashbacks, heightened anxiety or a constant expectation that the same danger will happen again. PTSD can affect someone’s ability to function significantly
We provide treatment for trauma survivors and people suffering from PTSD or complex trauma. We provide trauma-focussed CBT or trauma- focussed psycho-dynamic treatment. When indicated we may suggest medication as well. At times it is also helpful to use family therapy or in cases where the young person at times present with risk to themselves, we may suggest the DBT group.
