What is Trauma?
It's probably not what you think...

Trauma can deeply impact mental health, manifesting in various forms and affecting individuals differently. It can stem from past experiences, even those seemingly benign, like childhood events that disrupt one's sense of safety and well-being. Clients often realize they've experienced trauma despite having what they thought was a good upbringing. Unmet emotional needs can contribute to conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD, highlighting the complex nature of trauma's effects.


There are two recognized types of trauma: "Big T" trauma, such as physical or sexual abuse, and "Little t" trauma, like emotional neglect. The latter can be equally profound, arising from experiences such as having emotionally absent parents or those overly dependent on their children. These relational dynamics can deeply influence personal choices and behaviors, contributing to what's termed complex or relational trauma.

At Emerge, we utilize diverse therapeutic methods such as art therapy and EMDR to aid in your recovery journey from trauma. Our goal is to help you comprehend trauma's impact and take proactive steps toward healing and reclaiming a fulfilling life.
