About Traumacentre Belgium

On a daily base, people of all ages are traumatized.
Trauma can be a single-time event or repeated, chronic.
Trauma can be caused by impersonal stressors such as a flood, a car accident....
Trauma can also be caused by people such as war, rape, bullying…

When trauma is caused between the parent and the child we speak of attachment trauma.
Trauma is a unique experience and there is no hierarchy of pain

These experiences and events leave a deep impact on the person, to the extent that functioning on different levels becomes difficult if not impossible.

Trauma Center Belgium offers a team of specialists, equipped with their experience and knowledge, ready to provide a sound and well-founded treatment.

Trauma Center Belgium does not offer crisis intervention, but ongoing therapy.

In addition to the above, we would like to stress that our team is also ready to provide assistance to members of specialised teams. In this respect we are thinking of such people as members of the police forces, counsellors or relief workers. Dealing with terrible events and the victims of these events can also leave deep scars in relief workers, and these scars should not be ignored or minimised.

Therapeutic Framework

We’re all surrounded by the people we live with and traumatic experiences can change systems and patterns that are considered normal in our daily life. This can lead to misunderstandings, a difficult communication or dysfunction.

After experiencing a traumatic event, the involved parties often try to give their own meaning to what exactly happened. Sometimes these meanings can cause serious obstructions in daily life (fear, compulsion,…)

The traumatized persons enduring this will find ways to deal with these obstructions just so they can cope and live with them. Unofrtunately, these ways might cause new problems on a long-term base.

The necessity of treatment if therefore inevitable.

Our team analysis the case of every individual client thoroughly and pays attention  to body language and composure.

We practice:

  • Physically directed exercises - Hypnoses-EMDR-Psycho-education
  • Speech therapy-Comprehensive therapy
