A Trauma Therapist talks about Trauma Therapy and Trauma Counseling in Rochester, NH
You are crying all the time. Noises make you jump out of your skin. It feels like no one wants to listen to you anymore. Everything is just so overwhelming. You hear the words TRAUMA THERAPY and TRAUMA COUNSELING all the time, but you ask yourself, “Does this apply to me?”
So much of your childhood is a blur
You know that your childhood was hard, but was it trauma? Was it abuse? It was always better to just block out memories, but that isn’t working so well anymore. You haven’t had a good night’s sleep in so long. Going to bed doesn’t feel safe, because you fear you will have another nightmare. If you were honest with yourself, nowhere really feels safe. You can never predict when another trigger is going to present itself and ruin your whole day. And now you are starting to have heart palpitations and chills. And this feeling of dread is killing you.
You ask yourself, “What’s wrong with me?”
You feel like you are going crazy and yet you are supposed to hold it together, so no one notices the pain you’re in. You don’t know why the reactions you have are over the top and out of proportion compared to others around you. You ask yourself, “What is wrong with me?” You have just about given up hope of feeling better, even after years of talk therapy. But guess what? Talk therapy isn’t the answer. Research studies have shown that just talking about trauma and traumatic memories can actually cause you to feel worse. So, you can stop blaming yourself and finally get the right type of Trauma Therapy that will actually help you feel better.
Trauma Therapy with EMDR can transform your life
My name is Lisabeth Wotherspoon and I offer an evidence-based therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). One of the great things about EMDR is you don’t even need clear pictures of the abuse or trauma and you don’t have to relive it by talking about the details. We focus on emotions, body sensations and the negative beliefs you have about yourself. I help people just like you release the fear, the dread, and the negative self-talk you have been carrying around for so long.
You were not made to live a life of pain
If you feel like you can’t take another minute of how you feel, call me for a free 15-minute consultation so we can talk about how I can help you to get back to feeling self-assured, comfortable, and even joyful in your own skin again. Perhaps you can’t even imagine what that would look like, but together I am confident we can get you there. Call today so you can start your healing journey.
