Trauma psychotherapy by a therapist

What is trauma?

Trauma is what we call a given event which has led to very strong emotions which haven’t managed to find a place in one’s psyche. Undigested, these emotions remain in suspense and regularly resurface with all the intensity of that first time, even for years afterwards. Recurring and obsessive, they can destroy everyday life’s good moments and prevent the individual from living life’s events to the full. psychologist trauma psychotherapist trauma
