The experience of a single or multiple highly distressing events can sometimes lead to the development of trauma, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or complex PTSD (CPTSD). Experiencing or witnessing events such as serious accidents, assaults, childhood trauma, physical/emotional/sexual abuse and neglect can lead to lasting problems including anger, rage, fear, panic, guilt, helplessness, sadness and shame. Symptoms can include flashbacks, nightmares, angry outbursts and mood problems. These can be successfully treated with the trauma therapies that we provide, such as EMDR therapy, trauma focused CBT and trauma counselling, which can help to relieve the symptoms and resolve trauma.

The way we relate to others is typically established in our early relationships, particularly with our parents. These patterns can impact our relationships later in life and cause them to become disrupted, often placing strain on our interactions and the ways in which we relate to others. Identifying and exploring these issues with our attachment and relationship therapies can transform the way you approach your relationships going forward. Learn more on our dedicated page about Attachment and Relationship Issues.

With CBT therapy, our therapists can help to provide much-needed relief from what can be a highly distressing experience for individuals experiencing these difficulties, as well as those around them.
