Trauma therapy is a type of therapy that is specifically designed to help individuals who have experienced traumatic events. Trauma therapy can take many forms, but it is typically focused on helping individuals process and come to terms with the traumatic event or events they have experienced.
Psychological trauma is a type of injury that occurs as a result of a distressing event or series of events. These events can include natural disasters, physical or sexual assault, war, or other forms of violence. Trauma can also result from long-term exposure to stressful or harmful situations, such as living in a war-torn country or growing up in an abusive household.
We offer different types of trauma therapy:
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a form of trauma therapy that focuses on healing the emotional wounds caused by traumatic events. EFT has been found to be effective in treating trauma, particularly for individuals who have experienced complex trauma such as sexual or physical abuse. It's considered as an evidence-based practice and can be used to treat a wide range of traumatic experiences. EFT also addresses the impact of trauma on relationships and can be used in couples therapy as well.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is another form of trauma therapy that is based on the idea that traumatic memories are stored in a different way in the brain than other memories. EMDR therapy uses a specific technique where the therapist guides the client in recalling the traumatic event while performing a set of eye movements, sounds or taps, which is thought to help the brain process the memory in a more adaptive way.
Sensorimotor therapy is a form of trauma therapy that focuses on the connection between the body and the mind in the healing process. This approach recognises that trauma is often stored in the body as well as the mind, and that individuals may experience physical sensations, such as muscle tension or pain, as a result of the trauma.
Sensorimotor therapy can be used to treat a wide range of traumatic experiences, including physical and sexual abuse, accidents, and natural disasters. It's considered as a holistic approach to healing as it addresses not only the emotional and cognitive aspects of the trauma, but also the somatic (body) symptoms.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) is a form of therapy specifically designed to help individuals who have experienced traumatic events. It is a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and trauma-specific interventions that help individuals to process and come to terms with the traumatic event, and to manage the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related conditions.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is a type of couples therapy that focuses on the emotional bond between partners. It is based on the idea that emotional connection is a fundamental human need and that when this connection is disrupted, it can lead to emotional distress and relationship problems.
EFT has been shown to be effective in treating couples where one or both partners have a history of trauma. The therapy aims to help couples create a safe and secure emotional connection by identifying and expressing their emotions, understanding and validating each other's feelings, and learning to manage conflicts in a constructive way.
