Trauma and Nervous System Dysregulation: Root Cause of Mental Health Symptoms
There is growing recognition that many mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, poor cognition and memory (as well as physical issues), are the results of the high prevalence of trauma, post-traumatic stress and adverse childhood experiences (ace), and that only by addressing trauma and rebalancing the nervous system can we address these mental and physical health issues successfully and sustainably. Benjamin fry, accredited psychotherapist, author and founder of one of the only residential trauma clinics in the world, Khiron Clinics, has worked extensively on the ground and with leaders in the field of trauma to bring cutting edge trauma and somatic therapies to the UK. He will show us how trauma can cause stuck energy and a dysregulated nervous system, which can lead to biochemical imbalances which manifest in inflammation and mental health symptoms. He will also tell us about the most tried and tested therapies to heal trauma and rebalance the nervous system. Benjamin Fry, will highlight how trauma-informed care is a vital part of addressing a patient's underlying mental health problems.
