Trauma Therapy

Something in your life happened. It was not good. In fact, it was pretty scary. Maybe you have an abusive partner, experienced a hurricane, been assaulted, or grew up in a dysfunctional family. All of these things can cause trauma symptoms.

Symptoms of trauma can show up as physical, cognitive, and emotional distress. These symptoms may include:

  • confusion

  • fear
  • avoidance
Have you heard about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study? If not, we recommend you check it out. This study provides some verry important research on trauma in childhood and the negative effects it can have on your life. You can take the self-report questionnaire to see what you get. The higher the number, the more likely you will experience negative outcomes with your medical health, challenging mental health diagnoses, and difficulty in relationships.
However, here is the cool part about bad experiences: THEY DON’T HAVE TO DEFINE YOU! The anxiety, racing thoughts, or worry you may feel every day about your past can be processed. Although they may stay with you as a part of your history, they no longer have to be at the forefront of your mind. You can get control of your mental health. In time, you can start to feel better with support from a trained therapist.


Everyone Experiences Anxiety to Some Extent. PTSD is Different.

Everyone feels anxious sometimes, especially when they face stressful situations. But, not everyone experiences trauma or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). For example, a little anxiety about an exam may push you to study harder. Or worrying about a car crash means you’ll never forget your seat belt. However, there is a point where anxiety becomes all-consuming and debilitating. Too much anxiety about negative or disruptive experiences may cause you to freeze and be unable to get out of bed. Worrying too much about a car crash may keep you from getting in a car. Did you know that anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental illness in the United States

You do not need to live with all-consuming PTSD symptoms every day. There is hope. Without treatment, you may struggle to think straight, your relationships may suffer, and you’re at a greater risk for substance abuse and depression. It is important to acknowledge the negative feelings and difficult thoughts in order to find an effective coping strategy.

Synergy eTherapy’s Approach to Trauma Therapy and PTSD Treatment

Successful trauma treatment and PTSD treatment includes specific Cognitive Behavioral therapies, medication, and other approaches like meditation, relaxation, and mindfulness practices.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Trauma

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a common way to treat the symptoms of trauma and PTSD. CBT focuses on how your thoughts and feelings cause you to act in certain ways. It can teach you how to cope with bad thoughts and make changes in your behaviors to cope with the symptoms you’re having. You can’t go back and change what happened to you, but you can change your future and how you react to your trauma triggers. CBT will teach you coping strategies to help you respond in a healthy way when you are triggered by the memories of your past.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a specific trauma treatment that helps alleviate symptoms of PTSD. CPT is an evidence-based, short-term treatment that can lessen or even eliminate Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms. This form of therapy uses cognitive-behavioral techniques to help you cope with your symptoms. During online therapy, a counselor educates you about PTSD symptoms. Then, they help you change your unhelpful beliefs or “stuck points” associated with the traumatic event.

An experienced online trauma therapist will give you exercises to help you get in touch with your thoughts and emotions. After that, you will be encouraged to write a summary of the trauma. Finally, in therapy, you will develop cognitive tools that will help you think about the event. Ultimately, overcoming the trauma you survived.
