Could you benefit from therapy after a traumatic experience?

Psychologically and physically traumatic experiences can impact us in more ways than we realize. The effects of trauma can be linked to difficulties at work or school, trouble at home or in social settings, and can negatively impact our quality of life and overall mental well-being.

Although it can be difficult to face and talk about traumatic events, symptoms can ease over time with regular trauma therapy sessions as you learn to make sense of your experience. Other benefits of undergoing trauma therapy may include:

  • Reduced triggers and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Improved relationships with others
  • Increased coping skills to handle distorted or negative thoughts and feelings
  • Increased peace of mind

Whatever the experience that has caused you to seek trauma therapy, you are not alone. Summit therapists are here to walk with you and help you develop healthy tools and ways to cope.
