Trauma Therapy

Trauma is an emotional, psychological and/or physical injury(ies) that can impact a person’s psyche after experiencing extremely distressing events or prolonged exposure to events (ei. Adverse childhood experiences). This may result in challenges in functioning or coping normally in everyday life. Individuals often experience flashbacks, nightmares, insomnia, anger, guilt, shame, or hopelessness as a result of these past events. When living with trauma it is important to remember that it’s not only the objective facts of the event alone that determine how traumatic an event is but also the subjective emotional experience of the event.  At Catharsis Counselling and Psychotherapy, we provide interventions that are evidence-based care to treat trauma related symptoms and help clients gain control of their lives.
