When we experience a situation that is overwhelming, frightening and difficult to control we may become traumatised by it. That means that our brain goes in a state of shock and is unable to recover for a long time. Some people have nightmares reminding them of what happened others have back flashes or cannot sleep.
If you have experience trauma (rape, accident, personal injury, assault) counselling and psychotherapy can help you. At Kraków Counselling and Psychotherapy we have noticed that people with trauma respond very well elements of cognitive behavioural therapy, narrative therapy and Emotional Freedom Technique.
