Complex trauma, often referred to as Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), is a profound response to distressing or traumatic experiences. These triggering experiences can include anything from prolonged emotional, physical, or sexual abuse to neglect, accidents, and childhood trauma. The impact of these events can manifest immediately or lay dormant, only to resurface years later. Our skilled counselling psychologist Dr Kat Aguilera specialises in addressing these intricate layers of trauma, providing a safe and nurturing space for healing and growth.
Counselling for Complex Trauma
For those struggling with C-PTSD, a range of distressing symptoms may be apparent. Flashbacks, nightmares, and volatile outbursts can be difficult to deal with, alongside feelings of shame, guilt, fear, and helplessness. Our goal is to foster resilience, restore a sense of self-worth, and enable you to overcome these symptoms. Drawing from a range of therapeutic modalities, our complex trauma therapy integrates trauma-informed care, cognitive-behavioural techniques, and reprocessing therapies.
Types of Complex Trauma Therapy
As part of our range of specialised complex trauma therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy serves to help individuals to reprocess distressing memories, facilitating a transformative journey towards healing. Our complex trauma therapies also include trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy (TF-CBT) and trauma counselling, tailored to your circumstances.
