At some point in our lives, most of us will experience a traumatic event that deeply affects us. Whether in the form of an event such as war or an accident, or as a lengthy process of abuse or neglect, trauma has the capacity to significantly affect our lives. If these traumatic experiences are left unaddressed, it can lead to a number of mental and physical health issues such as PTSD and complex trauma, without allowing the sufferer to move on. With the help of trauma therapy, it is possible to process your trauma and get the tools that you need to move forward. If you’re looking for EMDR therapy for trauma, or trauma-focused CBT, our experienced psychologists at Aguilera Psychology can help.

Signs of Unprocessed Trauma

Although each person struggling with PTSD experiences different symptoms, there are a number of clear signs of unprocessed trauma. These can range from physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, nightmares, flashbacks, and angry outbursts, to mood swings and feelings of irritability, shame, depression, fear, and helplessness. It’s important to note that these issues can emerge immediately after trauma or in some cases, years later following unprocessed trauma. However you are suffering, at Aguilera Psychology we aim to successfully treat trauma, complex trauma and PTSD with the range of dedicated therapies that we provide.

Which Trauma Therapy is Right for Me?

Our treatment plans for trauma and PTSD are entirely dependent on each person, depending on their symptoms and therapy goals. For individuals experiencing distressing flashbacks, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a treatment that is designed to help blocked or unprocessed memories to become processed, by stimulating areas of the brain – consequently encouraging the natural healing process.

As our other form of trauma counselling, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) is also employed by our expert trauma therapists, as a talk-based therapy. Within this, individuals are provided with a range of tools and strategies to help to reduce trauma-induced symptoms, helping them to move past their trauma and regain control over their life.
