Trauma Counseling

Trauma counseling at Insideout Living helps clients understand what happens to the mind, brain, and relationships during traumas or unresolved events. The treatment helps the client identify present-day “triggers” or reminders of unresolved events that live in the body as a set of physiological sensations that are often stored outside of awareness. When triggered, the client is transported back to the time of the unresolved event and feels disempowered all over again.

During the process of identifying a trigger to an earlier trauma, the client’s attachment style and nervous system state are explored to help determine which protective behaviors are used during periods of significant stress. Next, new, more empowering behaviors are introduced that can help the client resolve the trigger in an empowering manner. Finally, we help the client identify how resolving the trigger creates growth for the mind, body, spirit, and relationships.
