depending on the type of trauma

The wide ranging, long term impact of this exposure
Adulthood or Childhood

We are working in Collaboration, we are together on this path
Working with someone in the aftermath of one or several traumatic event/s requires from the therapist to Be with you with a real Conscious Presence and Awareness of what is communicated both Verbally and Non-Verbally
We are working in the Here and Now whilst we may need, at times, to process past events.
We will be connecting with Imagination, as it is a real Asset in Therapy
The traumatic event is not what left the deeper imprint in you

THE MODALITIES I CAN OFFER

. When there is an unequal distribution of appropriate moral accountability.
You may want to check the work of Jack Saul on moral injury
