Most people will
suffer a traumatic experience at least once in their life and
therefore trauma can be identified as any event that is regarded
as negative and that changes a person’s view of themselves and
Crises can exacerbate all existing issues and conflicts. And we need skills to support our ourselves, families and others to cope and move beyond trauma!
The value of Trauma Counselling
It is in this context that trauma counselling is valuable, because it supports a person in identifying and coming to terms with the feelings and emotions experienced during and after a traumatic experience. These emotions will vary from individual to individual and need to be addressed. If suppressed, they will almost certainly have an impact a person’s physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing.
Trauma counselling is a short-term intervention, essential for the promotion of emotional well-being and critical support for adults and children alike.
