Attitude. Abundance. Achievement.



Trauma can be described in multiple ways.  When working with clients we go over big “T” trauma and small “t “trauma and how both can be harmful to your mind and body. Small “t” trauma simply put is your everyday trauma.  Getting to work on time, making bill payments, all the little things.  The thing with the little things is they add up and when they add up, they can create havoc on the body.  The good news is that the little “t” traumas can be dealt with more easily than big “T” trauma.  When a person experiences big “T” trauma parts of the brain shut down to protect you.  Although this can be a good thing, it makes healing a little more difficult.  The good news, in my opinion trauma can be healed. It just has to be done in a way that the brain can access all parts and systems in your body.   

Let’s start with defining what trauma… 

What is big “T” trauma? 

Big “T” trauma can be described as long-lasting emotional responses that often results from experiencing a distressing event. Facing a traumatic event can harm a person’s sense of safety, sense of self and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships. 

There are three main types of big “T” trauma: 

  • Acute trauma results from a single incident. 
  • Chronic trauma is repeated and prolonged events such as abuse, or domestic violence. 
  • Complex trauma is exposure to varied and multiple traumatic events, often of an invasive, interpersonal nature. Many first responders experience this type of trauma. 

After one experiences trauma shock and denial are typical responses. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and physical symptoms like headaches or body pain. 

How do you know if you have been traumatized? 

You may experience recurrent, unwanted distressing memories of the traumatic event. Reliving the traumatic event as if it were happening right now. This is also known as flashbacks. You may have upsetting dreams or nightmares about the traumatic event. Severe emotional distress or physical reactions to something that reminds you of the traumatic event.  

Types of Traumatic events 

  • Sexual, Physical or Emotional assault 
  • Sudden death of a person close to you 
  • Childhood trauma 
  • Natural Disaster 
  • Car accident 
  • Hospitalization, surgeries 
  • Witnessing an event 

What is the difference between trauma and PTSD? 

According to the American Psychological Association, trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event. Trauma can occur once or on multiple occasions and an individual can experience more than one type of trauma.  PTSD on the other hand in the mental health disorder that is associated when someone experiences or witness’s trauma.   

How I can help you heal. 

Research shows that during traumatic events parts of your brain like the thalamus (responsible for making coherent sense of the world by using sensory data) often shut down.   Although this happens to protect us, it is also the reason why healing from trauma becomes so much more complex.   

Because trauma has such deep rooted sources it is imperative to get to the root cause to heal it.  I use various neuro-cognitive processes in my work with people that allow the subconscious mind to get in and do exactly what needs to be done to heal and allow the mind and body to feel safe again.   

I have worked with people who have experienced various trauma’s and have been able to guide them to massive improvements within a reasonably short period of time.  For some people the change happens very quickly, while others need a little more time. What I can say with out a doubt you will feel a shift in how you feel before leaving your appointment.
