Few people experience life without some form of trauma. However, when those experiences exceed ones capacity to deal with it, respond to it , or make sense of it, the trauma can continue speaking in the life of the individual. It arrives without much effort and is a voice that whispers ideas formed during the most difficult parts of ones life. My goal is to help people stop listening to information that is no longer reliable and disrupts the process of thinking clearly.
Much like a fever signals illness in the body, emotional distress can signal a problem in the mind, and the relationship ones physical body has with the brain. Rather than avoiding the problem or suffering in quiet desperation, seek help. Counseling alone may not solve the entire problem, but it can significantly reduce the impact of negative or unwanted emotions and give you tools to manage emotions and navigate situations that disrupt your life.
Trauma has the tendency to keep speaking and informing the undercurrent of many affected individuals. Ben is trained in Somatic And Attachment Focused EMDR and has found it to be tremendously effective at resolving the trauma undercurrent that we often unconsciously co-exist with.
