Cognitive Processing Therapy (Trauma Therapy)
Have you experienced trauma that seems to have a persistent grip on your life? Do you find yourself grappling with thoughts like 'I'm not worthy,' 'I'll never find love,' 'I'll always be alone,' 'Nothing is safe,' 'I can't trust anyone,' and more? These thoughts can feel like a daily replay, keeping you ensnared in the aftermath of trauma.
For some individuals, the impact of trauma goes beyond thoughts. It can manifest as overwhelming memories and intrusive thoughts that disrupt your daily life. You might experience nightmares, struggle to sleep, find it challenging to trust others, feel a constant sense of unease, have difficulty concentrating, or encounter other symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
When these symptoms arise, it's natural to want to push them away. However, this avoidance can inadvertently hinder your recovery. Avoidance can often take the form of behaviors such as aggression, passive-aggressiveness, substance use, binge-eating or purging, emotional suppression or numbing, dissociation, ignoring distressing thoughts, physical or somatic complaints, or withdrawing from social interactions.
The time has come to confront your trauma and break free from the cycle of avoidance. It's through facing these challenges that true healing and recovery can begin.
