Our goal is to provide expert, evidence-based treatments, informed by careful professional assessment, and tailored to meet each person’s unique requirements.
While we specialise in trauma, it should be noted that a trauma-informed approach achieves very good results with anxiety, depression, bereavement, phobias, and many other conditions.
Why Specialise in Trauma & PTSD?
Here are 2 key reasons why we specialise in trauma:
1. Many people experience traumas as adults, which can take the form of road traffic accidents, domestic violence, muggings, deaths and serious illness (including cancer treatment, etc.), relationship breakdowns and other losses. These traumas often lead to other conditions, such as depression and anxiety.
2. A groundbreaking series of reports, based on the ACE study (Adverse Childhood Experiences, by Kaiser Permanente and the Centers for Disease Control, 1998) showed that childhood “traumas,” or adverse experiences have a huge impact on your physical and psychological wellbeing throughout your lifespan.
Some of these “traumas” may not be identified by most people as being traumas, but the greater the number of categories in which the person experienced, the greater the likelihood of that person experiencing physical problems, mental health problems and life difficulties. The original ACE study has been replicated and expanded by a large number of researchers. Currently, many states in the USA are continuing to research the huge impact of these childhood events.
In other words, in a large number of cases, people’s present mental health difficulties have their roots in underlying trauma(s) or adverse experiences. In order to effectively treat this, one needs to resolve these past events. Otherwise, we will just be treating symptoms and they are likely to return until the underlying cause is treated.
If people continue to have depression and anxiety, etc., despite getting good treatment, then it is likely that underlying past events are blocking the recovery process.
Here at The Transformation Centre, we have many years of treating such past events using evidence-based treatments, enabling people to live their lives successfully without being (often non-consciously) impacted by their past experiences. The goal is to resolve these past events so that they no longer impact the present. Then we can work on any remaining anxious or depressive symptoms, leading to a brighter future. So ours is a holistic approach that addresses past, present and future.
