Trauma. When thinking about this painful subject, we can ask, "have I resonated with a sense of intense fear, helplessness, loss of control, and threat of annihilation?" If the answer is yes, you probably have experienced trauma.
"Traumatic events are extraordinary, not because they occur rarely, but rather because they overwhelm the ordinary human adaptations to life. " (Judith Herman)
There is Hope when all our adaptations and attempts have left us reeling. Counseling can help us walk the road to healing, thriving and being renewed. If you have lost your voice, been isolated or robbed of power, the safety of a counseling relationship maybe a place to start.
