Anxiety happens when something triggers the body’s fight or flight response. This response is helpful if a tiger leaps out at you. It’s not so helpful if you have to give a speech. At Tempest, our approach to anxiety therapy starts with teaching clients to interrupt this response. Clients learn to reset their brain through a combination of exercises shaped by the neuroscience of anxiety, which reduce symptoms to a manageable level before rewiring the brain to change the response to triggers.
The goal of treating trauma is to identify what is “blocking” the ability to recover from a traumatic event, overcome those barriers, and facilitate that process of healing. To accomplish this, Tempest draws from the leading evidence-based treatments for trauma. These include Neuropsychology, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE). All four of these are considered the gold standard for PTSD treatment.
