When someone experiences traumatic experiences the body goes into survival. Many people continue to have lasting symptoms due to being triggered by these survival responses.

Difficult feelings may include a heightened sense of alertness/ being on guard, feelings of avoidance and having flashbacks. Additionally, it is normal to feel frightened, ashamed, sad, or even out of control. You might feel dragged down by the weight of the past. Or alone even when others are around. You seek connection, but often fear it. You feel misunderstood. You want to run. You feel angry or unable to see through the fog. You have a loud head, or struggle to feel safe.

Therapy can help you feel safe, and help you understand how trauma has affected you.
