A trauma is any life event that has left it's mark on you. The event is long over, but you still struggle with your emotions and behaviors.
A "Big T" Trauma is obvious, it is something threatening that happened to you in your life.
The "small t" traumas are less obvious, but still lead to poor emotional adjustment through repeated exposure to difficult people or situations.
What is CBT?
CBT focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behavior. CBT can help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts.
A safe and effective treatment for trauma fears, depression and anxiety
A form of CBT, exposure therapy is a process for reducing fear and anxiety responses. In therapy, a person is gradually exposed to a feared situation or object, learning to become less sensitive over time. This type of therapy has been found to be particularly effective for obsessive-compulsive disorder and phobias.
Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a common type of talk therapy that for some people can work as well or better than medication to treat depression. It can be effective if your depression is mild or moderate. It also can help with more severe cases if your therapist is highly skilled.
EMDR Trauma Processing
