The word
T R A U M A  
comes from the Greek word 
πληγή
that means

W O U N D 

We can work together
with all types of trauma

Trauma can be 
. Acute or a Single Event
. Chronic as in PTSD
[Post Traumatic Stress Disorder]
. Complex
. Developmental

Symptoms will vary

depending on the type of trauma

CHRONIC TRAUMA

When Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD] symptoms remain after 3 months
 

COMPLEX TRAUMA

Complex Trauma describes both
exposure to multiple traumatic events
often as an invasive,
interpersonal nature
And
The wide ranging, long term impact of this exposure
Adulthood or Childhood

 

ACUTE or SINGLE TRAUMA

The developped symptoms will naturally resolve within 3 months.

About 70% of us
have been through this

About 20% will develop PTSD

 

DEVELOPMENTAL TRAUMA

Refers to the impact of early, repeated trauma and loss which happens within the child’s important developmental phases of their life.
Usually early in life.
Unborn babies can suffer trauma to their developing mind and body when they are in the womb

Abstract Background

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
But the fact that there was no one to Witness what you have been through

Nature

THE MODALITIES I CAN OFFER

Abstract Background

The majority of people who have been through traumatic events
will not developp Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Among trauma the impact of the following are rarely known or recognised,


• Neglect on children:
More often than not, the children's needs are not met

• Moral injuries:
. When you act or when you are the witness of something that you find morally reprehensible
. When there is an unequal distribution of appropriate moral accountability.
          You may want to check the work of Jack Saul on moral injury

 

MY WORK ALSO INCLUDES

• Somatic Approaches inspired by the work of Pat Ogdens
who created the Sensory Mortor Psychotherapy Institute

• Expressive Art work

• A sense of humour when appropriate for you

• Common sense:
Information on your basic needs that can influence your mood and daily functioning :   your sleep, physical exercise, connection with others and diet [I am not a qualified dieticianand cannot offer       advice, but I am aware of the impact a diet has an mental health]
