Trauma and PTSD – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Trauma and PTSD:  Unfortunately, traumatic events exist in life and everyone at some point will experience a traumatic event of relative severity. If one does not effectively process and manage this trauma, it can have severely debilitating effects on the individual’s level of functioning and overall quality of life and could lead to PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

Trauma can range from abuse (emotional, verbal, sexual or physical) to witnessing other traumatic events such as accidents or death. Professional help from a trained psychologist can often help an individual to buffer against the negative effects of trauma, and to help them improve their quality of life.

Joey Tai (2)Counselling Approach: In order to achieve therapeutic progress, there needs to be trust developed between the therapist and the client. This is particularly crucial in trauma victims, as their sense of trust and feelings of safety have been negatively impacted. By using the therapeutic relationship to provide a positive learning experience, Joey is then able to go deeper into one’s emotional psyche to help to work through many of the emotions which have been not properly managed and processed. The aim of the therapy is to allow the client to experience a greater confidence in themselves as well as their surroundings; the processing of their emotions being a crucial supporting factor. Sessions with Joey are open and relaxed, with great emphasis on the client and what he/she experiences.
