Post traumatic growth

It is almost impossible to get through our lives without something difficult, adversive or traumatic happening to us.

A consequence of being human means that there is a lot of suffering. To be human means that we make attachments. To make attachments means that they might be broken. It is tough at times.

To be human means that we go out into the world and accidents can happen.

To be human means we can go out to work and again accidents can happen.

To be human means that we experience life events and these can often be difficult.

As humans however we are driven towards survival so time and time again we see the resilience pull through and people do get through traumatic times.


You can often have trauma symptoms and when you recover from them find yourself in a more positive mindset where post traumatic growth can occur.

We can get through tough times

Things can be different

As we look back through what we have been through, we may develop a deeper appreciation for our life.

It might be that you are grateful that you survived your trauma. 

Maybe after experiencing a bereavement you recognise how short life is and have a new appreciation for yours making sure that you do what you want to within it. 

You may look back on what you have been through and recognise just how far you have come. You can develop a deeper connection with your abilities and strengths.

My clients often get to this point after we gave worked through and processed the overwhelming experiences and the trauma they have been through.

Perspective is changeable and there is nothing like surviving a difficult trauma to help us put things into perspective and perhaps look at life through a different lens.

Psychological Therapy sessions often focus on who we are after we have survived trauma and connecting with the best version of ourselves.
