trauma-informed therapy

Trauma-informed therapy takes into consideration the impact of what has happened to you, and takes steps to avoid triggering or retraumatising you as you receive support.

This is really important because historically there have been many assumptions that the only way to move forward from trauma is to speak about what happened in detail. We now know that this is not true, and although speaking about it can be helpful for some people, this is not the case for everyone. There are ways we can work on the issues that are important to you and we will explore the best approach together.

While therapy for trauma can be hard at times because it can involve thinking about thoughts or feelings that are painful, you should not be left feeling unsafe. We will go slowly and carefully, and take time to notice how you're doing because that can help guide us to find the best way forward.
