Our Trauma Therapy Techniques

Based on the psychotherapy works of American psychologist Arthur Janov, primal therapy aims to confront any mood disorder or cases of depression which may have been caused by experiences of trauma throughout your childhood. Often referred to as primal scream therapy, these sessions aim to allow you to revisit these past traumatic events in a safe and supportive environment with the help of an experienced therapist, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of how this trauma shaped you as an adult. Please remember that for some people having too much or too little of something from their parents or care givers can cause symptoms of trauma like depression, anxiety, addictions as well as mood and personality disorders. You might not realise that the source of your pain comes from the childhood relationships with important adults in your life

While primal therapy is different from the traditional depression counselling service its effectiveness relies on the individual being able to engage the feeling process. Some people can do this easily, while others take a little more time, but either way most people notice a difference. Everyone reacts to varying treatments differently, and some may find our methods of trauma therapy extremely confrontational and that is why we go gently and at a pace that is comfortable for you. We recommend reading our FAQ section prior to booking a session to ensure you understand primal therapy before committing to a session with our therapists.
