Trauma Focused

Trauma-focused therapy is a type of psychotherapy that is designed to help people who have experienced traumatic events. Trauma can come in many forms, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, neglect, natural disasters, accidents, and other life-threatening experiences. Trauma-focused therapy helps people process the traumatic event and develop coping mechanisms to manage the after-effects of trauma.

There are several types of trauma-focused therapy, including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). CPT is a type of therapy that helps people change their thoughts and beliefs about the traumatic event. PE is a type of therapy that helps people gradually confront the memories and feelings associated with the traumatic event. EMDR involves recalling the traumatic event while following a therapist's hand movements or other stimuli.

Trauma-focused therapy is often used with individuals who have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but it can also be used for people who have experienced traumatic events and are experiencing symptoms such as anxiety, depression, or difficulty sleeping.

The goals of trauma-focused therapy include reducing symptoms associated with the traumatic event, increasing coping skills, and helping individuals regain a sense of control over their lives. The therapy typically involves creating a safe environment where individuals can discuss their experiences and feelings related to the traumatic event. The therapist helps the individual identify and address negative thoughts and beliefs about the traumatic event, and develop more positive and adaptive coping strategies.

In addition to traditional forms of therapy, there are also group therapies and support groups for individuals who have experienced trauma. These can provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to share their experiences and learn from others who have gone through similar experiences.

It is important to note that trauma-focused therapy can be a difficult and emotional process, as it involves revisiting the traumatic event and processing the associated emotions. However, with the guidance and support of a trained therapist, it can also be a healing and empowering experience for individuals who have experienced trauma.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
