Trauma recovery and treatment at The Banyans


What is trauma?

Trauma refers to any situation or experience that distorts or damages an individual’s sense of security or safety, arising from a variety of unpleasant and disturbing situations. There are two main types: once-off traumatic events, such as natural disasters or accidents and relentless trauma, which refers to abuse or manipulation that occurs over time.

It’s important to note that the same traumatic events may impact some people more than others and manifest differently because of individual differences, previously learned coping mechanisms and their existing support systems — all experiences are valid, which is why it’s important to seek personalised help on your path to trauma recovery.

Traumatic events typically cause extreme or ongoing stress, and the negative effects may go unnoticed for many years. For example, childhood trauma can leave deep emotional wounds, affecting mental health and wellbeing even in adulthood, leading to unhealthy behavioural patterns as coping mechanisms and disruptive emotions, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Compulsive behaviours
  • Substance misuse
  • Gambling
  • Overspending

The path to trauma recovery — how a trauma recovery program can help

First, recognising these symptoms is a crucial step in understanding the root cause of unhelpful behaviours or unpleasant emotions. Other significant signs that you need treatment for trauma sooner rather than later include:

  • Difficulty forming relationships
  • Avoidance strategies
  • Panic attacks

It may feel scary to reach out in those situations, but comprehensive assistance in the ongoing trauma treatment and management is crucial in aiding individuals to confront the complex aspects of this condition.

Our tailored rehabilitation program designed for trauma offers a well-organised and encouraging setting, allowing individuals to acquire knowledge, undergo healing and cultivate essential skills for lasting self-care. This approach ultimately lays the foundation for a life that is more stable and rewarding.

Trauma recovery is a journey towards healing, and at The Banyans, we understand the importance of providing a safe and supportive environment for individuals to embark on this path.
