Trauma psychotherapy by a psychologist

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

Couples therapy

When a couple’s situation is such that the two people can no longer put up with each other, or that communication becomes practically impossible or at the least is very difficult, then it is worth calling a counsellor to try and re-establish communication and review the problems.
