Traumatic Events

A Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. Even after a small trauma, such as a minor traffic accident, we can be left with unusual physical sensations and feelings of agitation and rumination over what has happened. Often we recover from these events on our own but sometimes a trauma affects us so much it affects our ability to cope and move forward. Trauma can leave us with recurring physical sensations, emotions and images that are replayed in the mind and easily triggered. These can affect everyday life and functioning, sleep, mood and relationships. Specialist types of therapy may be necessary for extreme trauma, however Kernel can offer support for certain traumatic events. Please contact denise@kernelcounselling.co.uk.
