What is Trauma-Informed Therapy?

Trauma-Informed Therapy is an approach that recognizes and responds to the impact of traumatic experiences on an individual’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being. This therapy is grounded in an understanding of the widespread effects of trauma and seeks to create a safe, supportive environment for healing. It focuses on building trust, empowering clients, and fostering resilience by acknowledging the role trauma plays in their lives.


How Trauma-Informed Therapy Can Help You

Trauma-Informed Therapy can help you by providing a compassionate and respectful space to explore and process traumatic experiences. It aims to reduce trauma-related symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD by helping you develop coping strategies and resilience. This approach also emphasizes the importance of safety, trust, and collaboration in the therapeutic relationship, promoting a sense of empowerment and self-efficacy.


What a Trauma-Informed Therapy Session Might Look Like

In a trauma-informed therapy session, your therapist will prioritize creating a safe and non-judgmental environment. The session often begins with establishing comfort and trust, discussing your current feelings and experiences, and setting the pace according to your comfort level. Techniques may include grounding exercises, mindfulness practices, and gentle exploration of traumatic memories at your own pace. The therapist will work collaboratively with you, ensuring that you feel heard and validated throughout the process, and may incorporate body-based interventions to help you reconnect with your sense of safety and stability.
