People are often not aware of the journey client and therapist embark on when working with Trauma. It is a delicate journey and asks of both client and therapist to be mindful, grounded, informed, resilient and pro-active every step of the way to ensure successful integration.
Some survivors of ongoing abuse or adverse childhood abuse, not only endure severe mental health issues like complex PTSD, depression and anxiety, but also have life impacting physical health issues, as a result of the ongoing toxic stress. This requires compassionate therapeutic intervention. You do not just get over complex Trauma, it can affect your life and health in ways that profoundly impact life on a daily basis.
