Ptsd and Inherited Trauma
PTSD can be the result of experiencing life-threatening events such as accidents, abandonment, being attacked
or controlled - through to the more obvious terrors of persecution and war. Symptoms of ptsd can include ...
panic attacks, confusion, black and white thinking, unexplained physical pain,
muscle tension, stomach cramp, numbness, dissociation ...
Similar symptoms can result from disturbing events or relationships experienced in childhood which could not be understood or spoken of at the time, leaving grown-up survivors vulnerable.
Silenced unresolved trauma may appear to haunt family life and be unconsciously transmitted to future generations in disquieting and baffling ways.
Psychotherapy aims to create a trustworthy relationship 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 space where we can begin to make sense of our experience, listen to, and learn to contextualise, value and understand the un-heard and the un-spoken -- that which may belong to the past yet still disturb the present and threaten the future.
