Trauma is a term that describes the emotional aftermath of a difficult or distressing event. It can be different for everyone, as what one person may experience as traumatic, another may not.
Life’s challenges, whether from early childhood experiences such as abuse, neglect, or disrupted attachment, or from later life events like accidents, violence, natural disasters, war, or loss, can all leave their mark. If the thoughts and memories of these traumatic experiences persist or worsen, they may lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Examples of traumatic events include:
- A recent, one-time event such as a car crash or assault
- Past experiences such as sexual assault, loss of a loved one, an accident, or living through a war
- Chronic patterns like ongoing childhood neglect or abuse
At Numinus, we believe in providing person-centred, trauma-informed support. We understand that mental health is about people and our connections to each other. Our therapists approach each person with a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens, making sure they feel safe and heard.
