Counseling for Trauma

A traumatic event is an incident that causes physical, emotional, spiritual, or psychological harm.

Trauma doesn’t make sense to the brain. As a result some people may discover lasting effects of the experience can cause them to live with deep emotional pain, fear and confusion long after the event has passed.

In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.
