Counsellors and psychotherapists listed below are available to offer therapy to help those who have suffered trauma and may be experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), whether that has been triggered by more common life occurences such as bereavement or more unusual and extreme experiences such as exposure to terrorism. If you are looking for help with bereavement you may also wish to check our listing of bereavement counsellors. Please visit the individual websites listed for further details about specialist areas covered.
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. You may wish to check that the therapist has undertaken specialist training in trauma counselling or post traumatic stress disorder treatment as there is no definitive accreditation for this area of counselling. Look for a therapist registered with a professional counselling or psychotherapy association such as the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) or British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). These therapists will be bound by a strict codes of ethics. 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. This would be an indication of the level of experience and dedication of a particular therapist. If you do not find a therapist in your area in this list, try our extended page of trauma therapists
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 Combat Stress who support British Armed Forces Veterans and Freedom from Torture who help refugees and those who have experienced torture. Visit MIND’s Post Traumatic Stress Disorder page for more. Another good online resource is the Royal College of Pyschiatrists web page Coping after a traumtic event 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.Henzy Tanrien-Sawyer(Dip.Couns)Counselling Service
