Trauma can be caused by something you have experienced or witnessed happening to someone else. Some examples are; personal tragedy, violence, natural disaster, rape, domestic violence, acts of war and significant losses. Individuals respond differently and there is no right or wrong way to feel after traumatic events. Counseling can help you work through the feelings of pain, fear, sadness and grief, whether the event happened recently or many years ago. You have the ability to heal and move on from these events.
