Intensive Trauma Therapy
Intensive Trauma Treatment (ITT) is a deep-reaching approach to helping alleviate the symptoms and effects of trauma. Once you apply, complete the assessment stage and are accepted, 9 hours of therapy (3 hrs over 3 days).
This is a one-on-one, private service that may be conducted online or in-person.
Clients who require discretion because of their professional sphere prefer this format.
Those who need to travel to Trinidad for services, also prefer this format.
You must apply to be considered for this type of trauma intervention and determine if you will benefit from this intensive.
Once your application is received, I will call to speak with you more in-depth about your needs, goals and expectations. Pre-treatment assessments will be conducted to assess the suitability of this approach for you and if all is well - if so, we will set our week!
If not, you will be offered normal trauma treatment at my practice if you are a local. Same interventions, but spread out over time for better integration.
WHAT TO EXPECT ONCE ACCEPTED
You will be educated on trauma and its effects; learn to regulate your thoughts and your body as trauma stays in the body. Most importantly, you will tell your story in your own words and then we actively work on alleviating the traumatic memories of both body and mind via processing. I will incorporate a number of techniques once they are appropriate including (but not limited to) EMDR and creative/artistic techniques and interventions. There will be assignments, exercises, worksheets and ample time for practice. There is always tea, coffee, water and chocolate!
Upon successful completion of your sessions, you will be equipped with an effective knowledge toolkit and resources for continued/ongoing support beyond sessions, a deeper understanding of self with a focus on sustainable wellness via meaningful lifestyle changes.
The cost is TT$6000. This includes:
a preliminary consultation of 90 mins and
6 hours of client
and a follow-up within 2 weeks after your completed work with me
Payment is accepted via cash, bank transfer/deposit, cheque, and Linx.
NOTE: If you feel that what we have addressed is complete in less time than we have scheduled, you are not obligated to finish the sessions. However, no refund will be provided. Some clients take more time or less time to work through an issue. The timeline provides flexibility and ample room for completion.
OTHER PARTICULARS - IF TRAVELING INTO TRINIDAD FOR SERVICE
All lodging, meals and transportation are your responsibility. I am happy to recommend several Airbnb’s and hotels in the area.
Due to the intensive nature of these sessions, combining this treatment with a vacation is not recommended. However, if you wish to stay on AFTER your intensive, that would be an excellent idea.
Those travelling from outside of Trinidad can, of course, stay with family if any but for those, including locals, who require privacy, downtime and peace for integration after sessions, there are two hotel options within a mile of my office:
Of note, I am beautifully situated near the High Street in San Fernando, C3 Shopping Centre, Gulf City Mall and South Park Shopping Centre. Amazing food, quality shopping and all your needs can easily be met here.
If you require any medical attention or would like to undergo any medical procedures here, I am happy to report that I am situated close to the San Fernando General Hospital. For private care: Arocpolis Medical Centre, Gulf View Medical Centre, Surgi-Med and Southern Medical Clinic are all within 10 minutes (or less) of my location.
If you have your own vehicle or rental vehicle, parking is available onsite at the office. If not, I can arrange transport from the airport to the hotel and later between the hotel and office at an extra charge paid direct to the driver.
