Trauma Counselling in Newcastle

Traumatic experiences are situations that are frightening, overwhelming, and difficult or out of our control.  Trauma can cause problems with anxiety, depression, sleeping and difficulties in work, hobbies and relationships.

If ignored or covered up, deeper problems can occur later on. This can occur especially with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Getting help with the right type of therapy and counselling for trauma or PTSD at Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling can significantly improve the way you feel manage your symptoms.

Counselling for Trauma

Counselling, therapy and psychotherapy can help you overcome traumas such as rape, accidents, injury, assault and robbery as well as those related to military conflicts or disaster.  

Trauma and post-traumatic-stress disorder (PTSD) both respond well to  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Trauma (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindfulness based therapies.

Symptoms of trauma can be different for everyone.  If you think you might be suffering from trauma or PTSD, do you:

  • Feel anxious, guilty or angry even though the event has passed?
  • Have vivid memories, flashbacks or nightmares about the event?
  • Feel emotionally numb or disconnected at times?
  • Feel irritable but don’t know why?
  • Feel more out of control of your mood?
  • Have problems with sleeping (such as insomnia, waking up early or fear of going to sleep)?
  • Experience panic attacks or keep busy to cope?
  • Avoiding certain places and reminders of the event?
  • Feel constantly “on guard” or worrying about it happening again?
  • Use drugs, substances or alcohol to cope with the trauma?

At Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling, trauma counselling is designed around your individual needs. Our team of Trauma Counsellors and Psychologists can target your traumatic symptoms whether they include anxiety, depression, anger, sleep disturbances, flashbacks or nightmares.
