Help after trauma

Trauma feels
  • overwhelming

  • as if your whole world is in chaos

  • like the life you used to know has been lost forever

  • I know how difficult it can be to talk about pain, despair and despondency. But I've found that talking about a traumatic event can help a sufferer to come to terms with what they've lost. When it seems that no one else can possibly understand what you are feeling, I believe that I can help.

    Car crashes, terrorist attacks, natural disasters and other traumatic events not only affect those directly involved but their family and friends as well. It's traumatic to witness an accident or to survive when others have died. Even those who go from one emergency to another - the police, the journalist or the medic - sometimes cannot cope.

    Although that traumatic event can be a 'once in a lifetime' experience, many of us are subject to long term episodes of continuous trauma. Domestic violence is a major cause of complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and I have considerable experience of working with victims of this and many other crimes.
