Counselling for PTSD and Trauma

Psychological and emotional trauma can be caused by a single experience or ongoing, repeated exposure to stress. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a normal reaction to an abnormal event, experienced by one in three people who live through a traumatic event. Counselling for PTSD can help.

When coping with trauma interferes with your everyday life, it is time to get help. You can make a change to create a better life.

Why Seek Counselling for PTSD and Trauma

Traumatic events are experiences where the person watched or as personally exposed to death or injury or threat of these things. Some examples are: car accidents, domestic violence, sexual violence or abuse (as a child), natural disasters (earthquake, hurricane, flood).

After a traumatic event, you may find yourself feeling numb, disconnected, or unable to trust. You may experience upsetting emotions such as anger or anxiety, or a constant feeling of danger. You might have frightening flashbacks or nightmares.

Have you tried to deal with these feelings through substance abuse or risk taking? Perhaps your relationship with your family has been affected by your changed behaviour. Or, perhaps you feel worried you’re never able to sustain a relationship. These challenges are often related to trauma.
