Should You Become A Trauma Coach? by Mimi Rothschild

Should You Become A Trauma Coach





A traumatic experience is defined as any event that is extremely upsetting or unpleasant and has an effect on a person on an emotional level. It can leave one feeling highly perplexed, disoriented, furious, or hurt. People who are forced to endure traumatic experiences rarely undergo significant character shifts due to their experiences. Their behavior can all of a sudden alter. They may find themselves extremely cut off from the rest of the world.

People who have been through traumatic experiences frequently find that they cannot return to their previous lives. They have the impression that their lives are hopeless because of it. Some people even give up hope completely, which might result in them taking drastic actions such as taking their own life. Some people ruin their lives even further by becoming addicted to drugs or participating in other forms of destructive behavior.

Clients receive assistance in coping with various traumatic experiences from trauma coaches. They instruct them on how to mend their wounds and get their lives back to how they were before. They infuse the customers with hope and search for ways to make the clients appreciate what they have right now.


How To Become The Best Trauma Coach?


Get Yourself Educated


Learning the subtleties of trauma should be the first thing you do when you want to start a career as a trauma counselor. Acquaint yourself with the fundamentals. Learn why the nervous system gets trapped in certain states. Acquire a deeper understanding of the various forms and facets of traumatic experiences.


Recognize Trauma

A client's nervous system is something a trauma coach needs to be able to monitor. This can be accomplished in a single session or throughout several sessions. When attempting to recognize the effects of trauma, it is essential to bear in mind the analogy of a car and to determine if someone's foot is on the accelerator (exhibiting Hyperarousal) or on the break (exhibiting Hypoarousal).


It is the responsibility of the coaches to determine whether or not they can offer their clients support. If this is possible, then they need to think about what can be done to help the person get back to where they feel most comfortable. Breathing exercises and other bodily movements can be quite helpful in this regard.


Relate To Trauma

The most extreme example of stress is called trauma. It imparts a sense of complete helplessness and an overwhelming sense of danger. A trauma coach needs to be easily able to relate to their clients' traumatic experiences. This not only involves relating to the event but also the impact that the event had on the nervous system.



The Advantages of Successfully Completing the Grief Coach Certification Program


A holistic way of approaching the process of trauma counseling

A mental health professional's knowledge base can be expanded into areas most relevant to trauma through completing a training course that focuses on trauma counseling. In addition to this, it offers a toolset that is practical and makes use of both cognitive and body-based strategies for the decrease of symptoms.

Specifically, participants in the course will get training in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Levels 1 and 2 of EFT.


It is not difficult to accommodate

Because the training is delivered 24/7/365, you can go through the courses at your own pace. Very convenient for anyone!
