"Trauma is a fact of life. It does not, however, have to be a life sentence." - Peter A. Levine

Understanding Trauma

Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causing lasting psychological effects. It manifests in numerous ways, profoundly impacting emotions, personal life, work life, and relationships. Trauma can stem from various sources, including childhood abuse, accidents, natural disasters, violence, and loss. Trauma work is where i have seen the most glorious changes to have taken place within my clients. Trauma is often demonised as a big bad, but trauma exists in many form, it tells us to shy away for fear of what might come from looking to deeply into our past. I can reassure you this journey is one of the most profound beauty, there is a very real alchemy at play when we do this work, and this alchemy truly does bring about the most glorious change within us.

Manifestation and Impact of Trauma

Trauma manifests in diverse forms, depending on the individual and the nature of the traumatic event. It can lead to intense emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, and helplessness. These emotions can become pervasive, affecting an individual's overall well-being and sense of safety.

In personal life, trauma can cause withdrawal and isolation, making it difficult to maintain healthy relationships. Trust issues, emotional numbness, and hypervigilance are common, often creating barriers to intimacy and connection. At work, trauma can impair concentration, productivity, and the ability to handle stress, potentially leading to job dissatisfaction or instability.

The Subconscious Dynamics of Trauma

The subconscious mind plays a crucial role in how trauma affects us. It stores traumatic memories and the associated emotions, which can resurface as flashbacks, nightmares, or intrusive thoughts. These subconscious imprints influence behavior, often leading to avoidance patterns and hypervigilance as protective mechanisms.

Trauma weaves through the subconscious, shaping beliefs and perceptions about oneself and the world. For instance, a person who has experienced betrayal may develop a deep-seated belief that people cannot be trusted, affecting their relationships and interactions.

Five Signs of Unresolved Trauma

  1. Emotional Overwhelm: Intense and persistent emotions such as fear, anger, or sadness that seem disproportionate to the situation.

  2. Hypervigilance: Constantly feeling on edge, always anticipating danger or threats.

  3. Avoidance: Steering clear of places, people, or activities that remind one of the traumatic event.

  4. Intrusive Thoughts: Unwanted memories or flashbacks of the traumatic event that disrupt daily life.

  5. Emotional Numbness: Feeling detached from emotions or unable to experience pleasure and joy.
