Psychological Trauma

At Serenity we provide specialist psychological trauma services to help individuals to cope and move on from uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and emotions.

A person experiencing unresolved trauma may endure a range of symptoms such as, depression, low self-esteem, pain, headaches, irrational thoughts and feelings, insomnia, changes in sex drive, unexplained feeling of guilt or shame, tearfulness, all of which can have a negative impact on a person emotional and physical wellbeing.

It is not unusual for a person with a history of trauma to also experience some form of chronic illness like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or problems with reoccurring addictions as a means of blocking out painful feeling.

Many people as a form of denial around unresolved trauma accept their symptoms as signs of ill health rather than recognising untreated trauma issues. It may be that as a child a person experienced some form of mental, physical or sexual abuse or in early adulthood any difficult situations or specific experiences that were unresolved. It can be frightening to regress back to sensitive parts of our lives that cause painful thoughts, feelings or emotions, particularly hard at the thought of having to work through this with another or in a therapeutic environment.

At Serenity we have a fully qualified team of professionals that will support you with working through the difficulties. We provide an intensive treatment program over 3 days that will effectively reduce unresolved trauma, focusing on various techniques that will set you free to live a happy and full filled life. We also provide a variety workshops on co-dependency to enable you to let go and move on independently with your life and EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) a non-traditional type of psychotherapy known for also treating signs of PTSD and other trauma related issues.

If you would like more advice and information on the treatment program, please call our support and assessment team for further details.
