  • Certain things trigger or ‘set you off’ – you may react to certain situations without thinking.
  • Stress and anxiety - you are never able to enjoy the present moment and are constantly worried
  • Exhaustion - you may be experiencing sleeplessness, burnout, and low energy
  • Overwhelmed - your day-to-day tasks at home and at work seem impossible   
  • Paralyzed by indecision - you second-guess yourself and this causes decision making to be difficult and slow. You may feel like you are in a constant brain fog.
  • No one really understands what you are experiencing – you feel alone as people and may have been told to ‘just get on with it’ or ‘pull yourself together’ 
  • Lack self-esteem and confidence – you may miss out on life as you don’t feel strong enough to take part in daily activities
  • Panic attacks - you might find yourself short-fused and irritable because you feel out of control
  • Feeling low - perhaps you are self-medicating to numb your feelings with food/alcohol/shopping/netflix 
  • You may be experiencing physical symptoms - racing heart rate, headaches, acute IBS and insomnia
  • Feeling like you are failing at everything - curling up in bed, cancelling your appointments and running away are failing at everything.
  • Broken relationships - with your partner, family, work, or friends

The Real Problem with Trauma

Hidden triggers from past events and trauma are activating your brain’s stress chemicals and body’s nervous system. After a trigger or traumatic event, the brain chemistry can cause many symptoms and inappropriate responses, such as stress, fear, anxiety and depression. It’s not your fault, it’s just the way your brain is trying to protect you and to keep you safe. The good news is that there is a lot you can do that will greatly reduce or perhaps even eliminate completely the symptoms of past trauma and PTSD if you get the right help.
