Many of the painful experiences associated with trauma, such as paralyzing fear, spaciness and nightmares or flashbacks are a result of your nervous system reacting to experiences from the past. Because your past and present get mixed up when you experience trauma, your body is reacting to a past experience as if it were still happening. Through modern therapeutic techniques, it is possible to reprogram your nervous system so it is no longer forces you to react in a way you don’t want to. You can achieve freedom of expression again.
Trauma can be healed, and a positive transformation can happen. I have seen many people move from crippling fear and helplessness to a new sense of freedom and safety in their lives.
What I have seen is that people who work through difficult trauma are incredibly strong and resilient people with lots of awareness and insight. When we work through these difficulties, we are forced to learn deeply about who we are and what we are capable of. Many people have even attributed great spiritual or existential breakthroughs to their process of healing trauma.
People who heal from trauma not only experience relief from symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and spaciness. They also experience a more whole version of themselves, and less confusion about their lives. I truly understand how painful trauma can be, and I have also seen how empowered people can feel as they begin to heal it.
If you are suffering with trauma, please take the first step and make contact. I look forward to hearing from you and helping in any way that I can.
