Understanding Trauma & Its Impact

Gravel Road into the Forest
"Trauma is not what happens to you, it's what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you. Trauma is that scarring that makes you less flexible, more rigid, less feeling, and more defended."

When trauma is left untreated, it can have significant negative impacts on your physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.

Some possible consequences of untreated trauma may include:

Chronic physical health problems: Trauma can lead to physical problems such as chronic pain, headaches, and digestive issues.​

Mental health problems: Untreated trauma can lead to conditions like depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, and substance abuse.

Relationship difficulties: Trauma can impact how you relate to others, leading to difficulties in forming and maintaining healthy relationships.

Self-destructive behaviors: Some individuals may engage in self-destructive behaviors as a way to cope with the pain of trauma, such as self-harm or substance abuse.

Interference with daily life: Trauma can interfere with a person's ability to work, run a business, attend school, or engage in other activities of daily life.
