Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one's ability to cope or integrate the emotions involved with that experience. This can sometimes lead to a sense of experiencing yourself as 'Shattered '.
If you are someone who has gone through a traumatic experience, you may be struggling with upsetting emotions, frightening memories, or a sense of constant danger. You may feel numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people. When bad things happen, it can take a while to get over the pain and feel safe again.
With the right support, you can explore different ways to manage and cope - whether the traumatic event happened years ago or yesterday, you can heal and move on.
“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
