Childhood trauma can have profound and lasting impacts on an individual’s mental and emotional well-being. Whether stemming from abuse, neglect, or other distressing events, childhood trauma can trigger a range of reactions, either immediately or years later, and can be especially detrimental to the developing minds of children. Often, these deep emotional imprints lead to anxiety-based disorders later in life, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma.
Counselling for Childhood Trauma
At Aguilera Psychology we offer a variety of childhood trauma therapies, encompassing validating emotions, developing coping strategies, and building a sense of safety and trust. Our evidence-based approach to childhood trauma therapy integrates a blend of modalities tailored to each individual. Recognising the profound impact of early experiences, our counselling psychologist Dr Kat Aguilera offers a safe and nurturing space to alleviate trauma symptoms and promote healing.
Types of Childhood Trauma Therapy
Our evidence-based therapies for childhood trauma include Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and trauma counselling. EMDR therapy focuses on processing blocked or unprocessed traumatic memories, facilitating movement beyond the trauma’s grip. Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) and trauma counselling also play pivotal roles in our approach, empowering individuals to regain control, confidence, and a sense of normality in their lives.
