When you experience trauma, you can become emotionally and physically overwhelmed. You may have trouble breathing when you find yourself in a similar setting as the one where your trauma occurred, feel penned in during social occasions, or be hyper-aware of your surroundings. You may have trouble sleeping and struggle in relationships because you can't express your feelings. You may not understand them yourself.
Our bodies hold trauma. Through somatic experiencing, we can learn to release the trauma.
With CBT we focus on the negative thoughts and emotions caused by the trauma. Known as talk therapy, it can be very powerful
Trauma is stored differently in the brain than other memories. EMDR helps to reprocess traumatic memories so they are less disturbing.
