Trauma Counseling

Trauma refers to the body or mind being overwhelmed by traumatic events. Psychological trauma in particular occurs as a result of a distressing event that leads the sufferer to question their beliefs while destroying their assumptions of trust.

 

If you have experienced a traumatic event, you may feel socially disconnected and somewhat numb, leading to feelings of isolation. On top of this, you may find yourself feeling more afraid and vulnerable than before the event. 

Psychological trauma is the mind's reaction to an event and not everyone will react to the same event in the same way. For example, some people would find falling from a height traumatic, while others choose to jump out of planes for fun. Trauma also affects people in different ways and for some, the symptoms take weeks, months, or even years to surface. Issues may include:

  • Depression and Anxiety

  • Trauma

  • Managing Stress

  • Life Transition

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Grief and Loss

  • Communication Skills
