The therapists listed have all identified trauma therapy as a key area of focus for them however their individual areas of expertise and depth of experience will vary.

Look for a therapist registered with a professional counselling or psychotherapy association such as the

The Royal College of Psychiatrists recommends that those who have experienced trauma should "Be involved with other survivors" and many experienced therapists may also run support groups for survivors of trauma.

In addition to private therapy your GP can help you find sources of help including organisations which specialise in the particular type of trauma you have experienced. The web of course has many useful resources and the charity MIND maintain a good section on trauma which includes links to a number of organisations such as
who help refugees and those who have experienced torture. Visit MIND's
page for more. Another good online resource is the Royal College of Pyschiatrists web page
which outlines the typical stage experienced following a traumatic event, including the emotions and physical symptoms. It recommends action to take as well as behaviours to try and avoid as well as advising when and how to get help.
