Trauma Healing

Although I am a "talk" therapist and find it incredibly effective for certain issues like depression and anxiety, I am learning more and more about trauma work and how somatic treatments are needed. After a trauma, feeling safe again is the most important thing. You can't "know" safety, you need to "feel" safe. Talk therapy can help later to work through the issues that have developed after the trauma but apparently it's not needed for most folks. You need to find physical activities that get the trauma energy OUT. There are somatic and EMDR therapists that help with this if yoga, walking, EFT, hugging, dancing etc don't work. Please reach out if you or someone you know needs help. (P.S. my journey of learning never ends so I might tell you something different as my horizons are broadened.)
