Trauma Assessment & Support Service (TASS)

At The Practice MK we have a number of Associates, both Psychologists and Counsellors who have extensive knowledge in the field of trauma.  By combining their experience we are able to offer comprehensive trauma assessments, as well as short term and long term support for our clients.

 

What is a trauma?

A trauma is an event that generates intense fear during which an individual may feel like they (or someone very close to them) may die or experience serious harm. A trauma is personal and therefore any event may be perceived as sucjh. Traumatic events go beyond daily stressful events. Examples may be:

  • Assault
  • Rape
  • Accidents
  • Fire
  • Robbery
  • Road traffic accident
  • Disaster
  • Witnessing someone being badly injured or killed
Before having treatment for PTSD, a detailed assessment of your symptoms will be carried out to ensure treatment is tailored to your individual needs.

PTSD is estimated to affect about 1 in every 3 people who have a traumatic experience, but it's not clear exactly why some people develop the condition and others don't.
