Wondering if trauma therapy is right for you? Our team at Cornerstone Counseling Services of Oklahoma and Texas shares signs to help you decide in this guide.

7 Signs You Can Benefit From Trauma Therapy

Though anyone who has experienced trauma can benefit from trauma therapy, our team at Cornerstone Counseling Services of Oklahoma and Texas share seven signs you should seek it as soon as possible.

You’re Constantly Anxious or Depressed

Everyone feels a bit anxious or down from time to time, but neither is a state you should live in. If you find that anxiety, depression, or both are taking over your life, it’s time to seek help.

You Have Nightmares and Flashbacks

Many people find themselves reliving a traumatic event when they sleep or something triggers a memory in the middle of the day. This can be traumatic itself and indicates the need for therapy.

You’re Hypersensitive or Emotionally Numb

Trauma can often make a person live on the verge of a breakdown or completely detached from their emotions. The latter might help you get through the day, but it’s certainly not a solution. Therapy can help you find healthier coping mechanisms while working through your trauma.

You Practice Avoidance

It’s not unusual for people who experience a traumatic event to completely avoid specific activities, places, and even things like food if they trigger memories of the event. Some also avoid specific people or people in general. Therapy is an essential component for moving past avoidance and embracing life.

You Have Difficulty With Relationships

Due to the issues mentioned above and many more, trauma often leads to trouble in relationships. These include relationships with spouses, friends, children, parents, coworkers, and anyone else in the affected person’s life. Seeking therapy for trauma can help put an end to this before destroying your most precious relationships.

You’re Having Harmful Thoughts or Falling Into Destructive Habits

Trauma can lead to many thoughts of harming oneself or committing suicide. However, thoughts and habits can also fall into a different type of destruction, such as substance abuse. In any of these cases, it’s time to seek therapy.

You’re Tired of Hearing People Say “Get Over It”

Even people who mean well and those who love you and want to see you feeling better can say less-than-helpful things. Those things tend to be something along the lines of “Get over it.” You know if it were that easy, you would have done it already, but therapy can help you along the path.
