Ptsd and Inherited Trauma

Common symptoms of ptsd can include .... nightmares, flashbacks, hyper-vigilance, paranoia, insomnia, intrusive thoughts, memory loss, panic attacks, confusion, black and white thinking, loneliness,
overwhelming fear/grief/rage, unexplained pain, back ache, muscle tension,
stomach cramp, night sweats, numbness, dissociation ....

Alongside more obvious traumatic events, the symptoms of repressed trauma can sometimes appear to haunt family life. Children may inherit symptoms ptsd as well as suffering their own experience of neglect or abuse. Grown-up survivors often remain vulnerable to further traumatic experiences.

Psychotherapy aims to create a trustworthy secure base where we are supported to explore our emotional landscape, to speak our mind, hear ourselves think and embody our feelings -

A co-created, non-judgemental relationship, where we can begin to make sense of painful experiences and intrusive thoughts or memories.

A space where we can listen to, and learn to contextualise, value and understand the un-heard and the unspoken - that which may belong to the past yet disturb the present and threaten the future.
