Every person’s experience of trauma is unique, but there does tend to be a familiar pattern that forms a toxic trio of
1. a sense of terror;
2. a sense of being overwhelmed; and
3. an intense shame.
Trauma is difficult to manage alone.
If you recognise the signs, seek professional help. With the right help, it is possible to learn to trust and grow.
Find out more about trauma, and how to find the right professional help, in Beyond the Blue, available at all good book retailers.
