Comprehensive Healing and Support

Trauma Therapy

At Pathways Psychological Services, we specialize in trauma therapy to help individuals heal and regain control of their lives. Our evidence-based treatment modalities are designed to address various aspects of trauma, ensuring a holistic approach to recovery. Below, we outline the primary techniques we employ in our trauma therapy sessions.

Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET)

Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) is a structured short-term therapy that helps clients integrate and make sense of their traumatic experiences. By narrating their life stories chronologically, clients can contextualize traumatic events, reducing the emotional impact and aiding in the healing process. NET is particularly effective for individuals with complex trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Thought Field Therapy (TFT)

Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a tapping therapy that involves tapping on specific meridian points on the body while focusing on traumatic memories. This technique aims to alleviate the emotional distress associated with trauma by balancing the body’s energy system. TFT is known for its rapid results in reducing symptoms of anxiety and stress.

Bilateral Stimulation

Bilateral stimulation is a core component of several trauma therapies, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This technique involves stimulating both sides of the body through tapping, auditory tones, or visual cues. Bilateral stimulation helps to process and integrate traumatic memories, reducing their emotional charge and fostering a sense of calm.

Cognitive Behavioral Techniques (PE, CPT, & SIT)
  • Prolonged Exposure (PE): PE involves repeated, controlled exposure to trauma-related memories and cues. This technique helps clients gradually confront and process their fears, leading to a reduction in PTSD symptoms.
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT): CPT focuses on identifying and challenging distorted beliefs related to trauma. Through cognitive restructuring, clients learn to develop healthier thinking patterns and reduce trauma-related distress.
  • Stress Inoculation Training (SIT): SIT equips clients with coping skills to manage stress and anxiety. This technique involves teaching relaxation, breathing exercises, and cognitive strategies to handle trauma triggers effectively.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a well-established trauma therapy that combines bilateral stimulation with guided recall of traumatic memories. This approach facilitates the reprocessing of traumatic events, enabling clients to achieve resolution and relief from distress. EMDR is particularly effective in treating PTSD and complex trauma.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

EFT, often referred to as “tapping,” combines elements of cognitive therapy and acupressure. By tapping on specific acupressure points while voicing thoughts related to trauma, clients can release negative emotions and reduce physiological stress. EFT is versatile and can be used to address a wide range of emotional and psychological issues.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy integrates body awareness and movement with traditional talk therapy. This approach helps clients process trauma stored in the body, promoting physical and emotional healing. Sensorimotor techniques are especially useful for individuals who have difficulty verbalizing their traumatic experiences.
