Overcoming Trauma

How can we move on from our trauma?

Many of us experience trauma in our lives and, if left unaddressed, this can have a long-term impact on our physical, mental and emotional health. But it doesn't have to!

At this special event, psychologist Dr Jessamy Hibberd will explore the effects of trauma, drawing on the latest research from psychology, neuroscience and her own experiences as a clinical psychologist treating people with trauma.

Dr Jessamy will help us open up the space for self-healing and introduce the power of 'post-traumatic growth' - a remarkable way that painful experiences can lead to a valuable reassessment of our lives and a newfound discovery of meaning.

You'll discover how we can process past events and move forward with a deeper level of self-awareness, purpose and acceptance. And you'll learn practical tools to move beyond the hurt and lead a more fulfilling, joyful life.

This was recorded at an Action for Happiness live event on 21 February 2024 hosted by Dr Mark Williamson.
