      How can one explain what Trauma is in the brain?

      Read More
      • In the context of brain function, trauma can be defined as any event or experience that changes your vision of yourself and your place in the world.
      • It may occur as the result of one single event, or it could build up gradually due to a threatening or lonely environment.
      • The imprint of trauma exists in our society in epidemic proportions; from war and its victims, to victims of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.
      • When brain activity is altered by traumatic events it can be a heavy burden to carry.
      • What may have served us as a necessary self-preservation response in the past seldom serves us in the present?
      • Trauma is broadly classed in two categories.
      • The most commonly recognised is hyper vigilance;
      • The less widely known is freeze and dissociation.
      • Trauma can often manifest as a combination of the two, as the nervous system shifts between one and the other.

      How is Hyper Vigilance affected with Trauma?

      Read More
      • A heightened state of awareness is part of the fight / flight response, resulting in a state of chronic hyper-vigilance.
      • This state is akin to being locked into permanent ‘battle stations’; brain resources on constant alert, causing inappropriate or even aggressive reactions in everyday situations.

      How is your Freeze and Dissociation affected with Trauma?

      Read More
      • When a threat is utterly overwhelming and too much for the fight / flight system to cope with, the brain goes into a ‘Freeze’ state; a numbing or collapse response.
      • This sort of trauma is experienced as a general shutdown, lack of vitality, emotional separation and detachment.

      How is Neurofeedback used for Trauma?

      Read More
      • Neurofeedback therapy works at a deep subconscious level, breaking the cycle of trauma and post-traumatic symptoms.
      • By identifying and training the areas of concern, we precision tailor your sessions to help you shift out of these patterns and back into a natural, neutral state.
      • Neurofeedback gives the brain the tools to move past traumatic events – without having to talk about them, explore them, or relive them.
