DISCHARGING TRAUMA LEADS TO SPONTANEOUS RECOVERY
Have you ever wanted help yet didn't know where to turn or who to turn to? Have you adapted to your life experiences and think that 'this is as good as it gets?' Are you feeling hopeless? There is hope! This episode will review how dis-charging trauma can lead to spontaneous recovery. Without this critical process distress patterns will develop and will show up in peoples' behaviours, body language, emotional responses and thinking patterns. Unprocessed trauma can even lead to serious personality disorders which compromise one's mental health. Joining me on this episode of TraumaTalk will be Mr. Colin Stroud from Cambridge England.
