Narcissistic Abuse Recovery

Therapy for Trauma in Bucks County, PA

What is trauma?

Trauma is defined as an emotional response to a physically- and/or emotionally-threatening or harmful event. Traumatic events are those such as an accident, rape, sudden death of a loved one, or natural disaster. 


Responses to traumatic events vary significantly among people.

Some of the common results include:

  • PTSD

  • Dissociative disorders

  • Substance abuse problems

  • Emotional outbursts

  • Nightmares

  • Insomnia

  • Nausea

  • Dizziness

  • Altered sleep patterns

  • Changes in appetite

  • Headaches

  • Gastrointestinal problems

  • Feelings of sadness, anger, fear, and shame

A traumatic experience can shake your reality, impacting your beliefs about yourself, others, and the world. It can disrupt your previous schemas, thoughts, and plans. You might believe that others can’t be trusted, you are tainted, or the world is not safe place.


Many times, trauma can be derived from interpersonal relationships; these often include long-term abusive relationships, (emotional abuse/narcissistic abuse), childhood abuse (physical/ sexual/emotional abuse), or childhood neglect. Ultimately, trauma caused by people is usually more difficult to cope with. 

How to Cope with Trauma

Trauma often causes difficulties in relationships with others or your relationship with yourself. Trauma can evolve over time, manifesting as depression, anxiety, and/or low self-esteem. Unhealed trauma can look like codependency or a low sense of self-worth; alternatively, it may instigate feelings of shame, fear, or difficulty with setting boundaries. 


When dealing with this issue, you may feel as though you should have overcome your past trauma due to the time that has passed. However, it is crucial to recognize that time alone doesn’t heal traumatic wounds. Individuals experiencing trauma highly benefit from trauma therapy, or undergoing therapy that is trauma-focused or trauma-informed.
