Trauma is a term that describes the emotional aftermath of a difficult or distressing event or series of events. It can be different for everyone, as what one person may experience as traumatic, another may not.
There are a number of evidence-based therapies that address trauma. This includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy) in addition to Somatic Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Ketamine-Assisted Therapy.

Our therapists approach each person with a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens, making sure they feel safe and heard. We’ll work with you to find the best therapeutic approaches to meet your needs. To learn more about Trauma Therapy at Numinus, book a free informational call with one of our health navigators.
