Have you experienced a trauma or crisis?
Trauma, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and sexual abuse survivors can suffer, not just from the trauma itself, but also from their own reaction to and processing of the trauma.
Daily reminders of the event can become extreme, resulting in dissociations, freezing, nightmares, panic attacks, flashbacks. These flashbacks can feel so real that the person feels to be re-experiencing the event.
The consequences of trauma and PTSD greatly depend on the:
- Age of the victim
- Nature of the trauma
- Response to the trauma
- The support the victim received afterwards
How I can help
I have worked with issues of trauma and PTSD since 2004 and therefore I am experienced in assisting victims of these events.
Therapeutically, I focus my work on strengthening my clients’ inner resources and trust in self, as well as to develop a positive body awareness. Furthermore, I help clients to develop tools against flashbacks and other symptoms.
Our aim is to understand and to work through the traumatic situation, so that the clients can transform the event in a story, and that story can then be integrated in one’s life path, as a past event.
Additionally, working through common issues of self-hate, guilt, anger, improving the quality of every day life, and starting to make plans and goals for the future – all these are important therapeutic goals which I discuss and develop together with my client.
