Working with Psychological Processes

Major Accidents

Trauma, the result of the overwhelming amount of stress an individual may encounter after being involved in or witnessing a very frightening or distressing event. 

This normally occurs during and immediately after the event and can be associated with severe post-traumatic stress symptoms.

Narcissistic Abuse

The resulted emotional abuse from a narcissistic relationship can take some time to recover, the victims need to rediscover themselves.  The narcissist will destroy their victims own identity, self worth and confidence. The victims of narcissistic abuse display not only emotional  abuse but also physical symptoms, sleep disruptions, headaches, muscle tension and stomach problems.  The constant gaslighting, false promises, eroded boundries and cognitive dissonance will drive the victim to a point where the victim thinks that they are the crazy one.  You are not crazy, the narcissist has done this to you intentionally to control and destroy you. 


Involves the body, mood and thoughts and can have an affect on how you eat, sleep, feel and think about things. There may be periods of extreme sadness that interferes with daily life, a mood or emotion state that inhibits the ability to enjoy life. 

The following is just a few examples of the symptoms of depression:

  • Too exhausted to get out of bed and go to work or partake in everyday life.
  • Spending significant time alone and not attending social functions, a loss of interest in enjoyable activities and or hobbies.
  • Sleep patterns may be affected, a sound sleeper may suddenly have trouble getting to sleep, other may feel tired all day but when they lay down to go to sleep they become restless.
  • Changes in appetite, for some their favourite foods may become less enjoyable and may experience weight loss, others may eat more in an effort to comfort or avoid feelings and they may gain weight.
  • Experience feelings of hopelessness and/or worthlessness.


There is a difference between PTSD and depression. One way to describe PTSD is; A medical illness, where individuals have trouble coping with their lives after experiencing some kind of trauma. The following is just a small sample of the symptoms of PTSD there are many more symptoms:

  • Repeated and unwanted disturbing memories of the experience;
  • Having strong physical reactions when reminded of the experience;
  • Avoiding external reminders of the experience, people, places, objects and activities;
  • Repeated disturbing dreams and/or flashbacks.


The emotional experience following a loss of a loved one is what most of us know grief as, but we can also describe grief as a loss of any kind, the loss of a job, relationship, house and status are a few examples and every person will have their own individual grief experience. 

Some days grief is subtle, like water just lapping at your feet, you know its there but you can still get on with your day and feel good and then others days it can feel like huge waves crashing over you head, completely immobilizing.

Night Dreams

Everyone dreams, some people will remember their dreams vividly and others may only remember a snippet of the dream. 

Dreams are like little messages from your deeper self, to you from you. 

Unfolding the meaning in your dreams can give you a greater understanding of the unconscious feelings trying to emerge that maybe having an affect on your everyday life, your everyday identity.
