Dissociation

Psychotherapy Counselling for Dissociation

Dissociation and Psychotherapy Counselling in Central London

Sometimes when we have been exposed to a trauma, whether this is a sudden event, or a sustained experience, such as childhood abuse or neglect, we develop the ability to cut ourselves off from the emotions connected to it. Therefore if something happens that consciously or unconsciously reminds us of that time we shut down. This was originally a very useful defence against the pain of the trauma. However, as an adult this defence can inhibit our lives, creating an emotional distance between you and others whether in close relationships, at work or with friends.

The Cavendish Psychotherapy Practice in London can help you explore the source and therefore the triggers for your dissociation, helping you become more aware of it when it happens and help you gain control over it.
