Trauma Counseling in Denver
Why is trauma counseling important?
Many people seek out counseling for problems such as depression, anxiety, or an addiction and learn that trauma is the real problem. Some of the common symptoms of trauma include:
- PTSD (flashbacks, nightmares, etc)
- Anxiety Problems
- Panic Attacks
- Explosive Anger
- Low Self Esteem
- Insecurity or Shame
Trauma counseling helps you deal with the root problem of these issues. Once you heal the core problem you’ll naturally see a change in the way you think and feel.
How does PTSD therapy work?
Working through trauama will focus on 3 things: your mind (how you think), your emotions (how you feel), and your body (body sensations).
When you have a negative experience in life your body, mind, and emotions have to makes sense of what happened. Sometimes you have difficulty processing these types of situations and they get “stuck.”
This feeling of being stuck is when you can’t let go of a bad memory, and a strong emotion like anger or fear gets triggered easily. Counseling will help you understand what’s stuck and heal it. Give us a call to talk with a Denver trauma counselor to learn more.
