At Mindsight, we believe that no one should have to carry their trauma alone. For this reason, we developed an entire Trauma Division to help provide much needed trauma services such as EMDR, TF-CBT, and DBT to the people of Kentucky.
Traumatic experiences can trigger us and keep us trapped in an endless cycle of fear and powerlessness.
Counseling can help you stop the cycle and break free of your fear. Take back your life today!
Begin the Healing Process
We now know traumatic memories are stored in the brain differently than good memories.
Like a disorganized filing cabinet, these improperly stored negative memories can come back up when we are triggered. This causes us to relive those emotions and reactions as if we were reliving the situation. We may also experience other unwanted feelings emotionally and physically when we are triggered. These flashbacks to traumatic memories can destroy our lives, leaving us triggered and afraid, sometimes without even realizing why or what happened.
With trauma counseling, it is possible to reprocess and restore these memories in a way that lessens the symptoms of fear, anxiety, stress, and rage.
Our caring counselors can help!
DON'T LET YOUR PAST DESTROY YOUR FUTURE
Frequently asked questions
What Is Trauma?
Trauma is an emotional response to a negative event or threat. Trauma could stem from a personal betrayal, an accident, a natural disaster, or other events where fear and a loss of control are experienced. This trauma could induce flashbacks, unpredictable emotions, strained relationships, and in some cases, physical symptoms such as headaches or nausea.
How can counseling help me heal from trauma?
Past trauma can leave lasting effects on our lives. Many experience insomnia, anxiety, stress, depression, and rage in the aftermath of a traumatic experience. Sometimes these emotions overwhelm us seemingly randomly when in actuality we have been triggered to relive those emotions by a reminder of the original experience.
What is the most effective treatment for trauma?
There are many ways to help your brain heal from trauma.
What is EMDR and how can it help?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of psychotherapy that allows you to heal from emotional distress that is the result of traumatic events that have happened in your life. EMDR Therapy focuses on the belief that traumatic experiences and memories can act as roadblocks in the healing process. EMDR helps put these memories away, so they become a part of your history and not part of your identity. Once that is done, your body’s natural healing process can resume.
