Sadly, sometimes we get hurt by people or events around us and each and everyone of us will react differently to these traumatic experiences. It is at times easy to blame ourselves for letting things happen even though it may not have been our fault. Many people will recover well, with the support and help from family and friends and may not experience long term problems. Others may experience problems directly after the traumatic event or much later in life.

The effect of trauma is complex and can have a huge effect on the rest of our lives and have an impact on our family and friends.

While no one can take the past away, there are techniques which can help us feel better to do all the things that we want to do in a day.
