Things To Learn From A Trauma Therapy
To begin with, I want to tell you that you can use these tips for every type of therapy. The first thing I learned about therapy is that we become so closed to our therapist that we end up showing, no matter if we feel okay. Basically, trauma therapy is practiced for people diagnosed with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Therapy is known to be really effective for the treatment of PTSD, later than you can begin with self-help effective strategies to cope with PTSD. While you begin your therapy sessions with your therapist, here are some lessons to learn from your trauma therapy. So, let’s get started.
Things to learn from a trauma therapy
1. Say no to Comparison
Understand that everyone has a different story, personality, mindset, experiences, sufferings, and healing. Therefore, do not compare your side with someone else’s side. Focus on your own recovery and healing. Things work differently in therapy due to different personalities. Your therapist knows better about you, trust his\her instincts, and let them help you during the process of recovery.
A comparison is of no help and will slow down the recovery process. Listen to your therapist and focus on yourself.
2. Replace your emotional thoughts with “wise mind”
Signs and symptoms of PTSD commonly trigger emotional thoughts. Emotional thoughts will take you in a negative situation and nothing better will come out of such negative thoughts. Therefore, try to replace your negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Also, you can try mindfulness activities to establish inner peace and happiness.

3.It’s okay to feel this way
The most basic thing to understand from your therapy sessions is that it’s okay to feel this way. To keep up with the spirit, you should learn to keep the hope and peace along with you. Such elements will help you take proper sleep. Furthermore, surround yourself with positive people. To overcome this, try our mantras for peace and comfort.
4.You are more strong than this
My therapist always used to tell me that I am strong. Whenever she used to say this, I felt a little anxious in the beginning. But, after some time I started using this phrase as my superpower. One way that I used to follow during my recovery process is to stand like a superhero and used to repeat “I am way stronger than this.” Try this technique; the superhero technique is really effective to keep up with the hope and spirit.
5.Learn to let go
It may take a little more time to master the feeling of letting go of anger and resentment. One tackled properly, I bet you are going to get more close towards recovery. Feelings of anger and resentment related to the trauma should not be carried for more time, try out mantras for anger management.
6. The past is the worst place to live in
As mentioned above, you should not be the prisoner of the past. The past is the worst place to live in and to overcome the issues and establish inner peace, we should all learn to live in the present moment. You can master this learning with mindfulness.

7.Love yourself a little more every day
A little more self-love towards your inner peace and happiness is proved to be really effective and can fasten the recovery process. Therapy teaches us to not become so harsh on yourself. Therefore, practice self-love and self-care by investing your time into the activities you love or enjoy.
8. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe
Breathe…breathe….breathe and try to live in the present moment. Do not let emotions take over your inner self and move towards healing every day. Feel how peaceful it feels to live in the present moment and how blissful it feels to be surrounded by people who support you. Learn how to make the most of the present.
Feel the vibrant energies and involve your inner self in the healing process. trash out all the negativities and establish positivity.
