Across the United Kingdom, it is believed that one in three adults will experience trauma at some point in their life.

Often arising from conflict, domestic violence, natural disasters, severe illnesses and the death of a loved one, trauma presents as either acute trauma, chronic trauma or complex trauma.

While the type of trauma an individual experiences will determine how severe their trauma is, trauma treatment is necessary if trauma is to be overcome.
