About the Trauma Center
At the Trauma Centre, we are building a competence center for trauma psychology. This includes patient treatment in line with solid and recognized treatment methods, in addition to teaching and guidance by other healthcare personnel, as well as courses and conferences.
We also carry out information work about how both everyday problems and societal conflict lines can reflect an underlying and often hidden problem of trauma.
We believe that a deeper cultural understanding of trauma psychology could be crucial for public health and for future generations.
The initiative was taken because we see that more and more patients with trauma experiences report that they are left in long queues or have their applications for treatment in the public sector rejected.
There is an urgent need for specialized trauma treatment services. Both clients, GPs and other referrers are desperate that the help offered is often too limited in time or not available.
The trauma center springs from the well-established Psykologvirke, one of the largest and most forward-looking professional environments for psychologists in Oslo.
The trauma center is currently a full-private offer. Clients must therefore pay for the treatment themselves or via health insurance. We are working to establish agreements with the public sector so that the treatment will eventually be available to even more people.
Affiliated with the trauma center, we have hand-picked and experienced psychologists who have cutting-edge expertise in the treatment of psychological trauma.
We experience that unprocessed trauma is often the basis for many different psychological ailments and diagnoses. Being wounded naturally leads to self-protection. When the wound is not healed, it continues to hurt, especially when something pokes it.
The natural self-protection can turn into overprotection.
Together, many of the ailments in everyday life are explained by the fact that you protect yourself against, or come across old wounds. Often you are not fully aware of this dynamic yourself.
Since it is not always easy to know what is the cause of various symptoms and disabilities you may experience, we have made a list of symptoms that recur in people with unprocessed trauma that you can read about on our pages.
Who is the trauma center suitable for?
Our clients do not have to meet the criteria for PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or complex PTSD to seek treatment with us. If you have experienced overwhelming or burdensome events, where you are left with symptoms that make it difficult to function and develop your life, then we are the right place for you.
We are interested in each person's life and history as a whole and we tailor the treatment based on both your resources and challenges. You can read more about different treatment methods we offer here on our website.
You do not need a referral and can get quick help. You can get to know each psychologist a little better via our website and book an hour via online booking.
The trauma center is centrally located in the center of Oslo. The offices are located in open and beautiful surroundings: 5th floor with a view of the sea and Akershus fortress. It is a short distance to the train station, subway, tram and bus. See map and directions.
