Traumatic experiences have different effects on different people. How a person reacts to a traumatic event is directly related to their history, coping skills, and emotional stability over time. If you've experienced trauma in your life, it may affect your emotional, cognitive, and physical health. Trauma can happen after many types of experiences, including; physical and/or emotional abuse, accidents, interpersonal conflict, war and terrorist attacks, illness or death. If you think you have some unresolved trauma you may be experiencing some or all of these symptoms:
Often people will experience the effects of trauma months and even years after the event, which might make it difficult to recognise the symptoms. Unresolved trauma can negatively affect your daily choices and functioning. Just as people need help to heal the physical effects of trauma, they also need help to heal the emotional wounds. When you seek out trauma counselling in North Vancouver with me, you'll have a safe and supportive environment to work through those issues.
Trauma counselling will build on your strengths and resilience and focus on building a trust-based and collaborative treatment relationship. I will be able to work with you towards establishing a sense of safety and self-care, helping you come to terms with your trauma story, manage flashbacks, and grow towards emotional and psychological well-being.
I can help you heal from trauma and rediscover your joy and happiness. I have a variety of expertise in many areas, and many have experience with trauma counselling. Please give me a call and we can arrange for us to meet as soon as possible.
