Understanding the Impact of Shame

Shame is a common response to trauma and can significantly impede the healing process. It can manifest as feelings of unworthiness, self-blame, and isolation. At Core Psychotherapy Center, we recognize that addressing shame is a crucial aspect of trauma recovery. Our team specializes in assisting those navigating PTSD, dissociative disorder, child sexual abuse, and sexual assault.

Building Self-Compassion Through Therapy

One powerful strategy for overcoming shame is to cultivate self-compassion. Our experienced therapists provide a safe and supportive environment where trauma survivors can explore their inner struggles with kindness and understanding. Through online trauma therapy, individuals can learn to treat themselves with the same care and compassion they would offer to a loved one.

Challenging Negative Self-Talk

Negative self-talk reinforces feelings of shame and diminishes self-esteem. In therapy, we help trauma survivors identify and challenge these harmful internal dialogues. By reframing negative thoughts and replacing them with positive affirmations, individuals can begin to reshape their self-perception and build self-confidence.

Building a Support Network

Recovery from trauma is not a solo journey. Building a strong support network of friends, family, and mental health professionals is crucial to overcoming shame. Through individual therapy and group sessions, trauma survivors can connect with others who understand their experiences and provide invaluable support.

Overcoming shame as a trauma survivor is a journey that requires compassion, courage, and support.
