Trauma

At Midpoint Psychology, we understand the profound impact that trauma can have on an individual’s life. Trauma is a complex and often misunderstood issue that can affect any individual – regardless of age, gender identity, or background.

What is Trauma?

Trauma is an emotional and psychological response to distressing or disturbing events that overwhelm an individual’s ability to cope. This response can have lasting effects on a person’s mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing – impacting their relationships, work, and overall quality of life.

Symptoms of Trauma

Individuals impacted by trauma may find themselves reliving the distressing event through memories, nightmares, or flashbacks. They may try to avoid anything that reminds them of the disturbing event and feel down or distant from others. At times, they may feel on edge and have difficulties sleeping. These symptoms, while normal in the short-term, can significantly disrupt daily life and functioning if left unresolved.

How Therapy Can Help

Therapy can assist individuals in processing and healing from trauma by providing a safe and supportive environment to explore and understand their experiences. Through evidence-based interventions including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), therapists can help clients develop coping strategies and regulate emotions. Therapy offers tools for managing symptoms, increasing resilience, and ultimately empowering individuals to reclaim control over their lives.
