Trauma Support

This work is not always easy. To be successful in this area you must look within and reflect and you must often face emotions you haven't faced in a while. Experiencing life threatening situations in your environment creates certain Psychological Trauma (PT) and can even be responsible for Post Trauma Stress Disorder (PTSD) due to a totally natural, human physiological response. The Psychological Trauma effects the way our experience from that event is stored in our memory – it causes storage in fragments, rather than a whole, complete memory filed orderly and because of that we end up with ”sensitive spots” or reactionary memories. The fragmented detailos of the event are stored as sensory memories. Therefore when particular fragments (smells, sights, sounds, etc) are re-experienced later, what is immediately brought up in your body is the same sensory experience you had when you encountered your traumatic event the first time. This is what is commonly referred to as ‘being triggered’—an element from the event “triggers” the physiological response that goes along with that sensory data (smell, sight, sound, sensation). By addressing the memory’s fragments of a Psychological Trauma in a place where you are not in emergency mode, we can teach your brain to reframe a traumatic event and store the information from the event wholly (not in fragmented pieces). When the memory is fully integrated and stored in a complete way, fragmented shards do not pop up and trigger the physiological responses associated with the original event.
