What is Trauma Counselling?
Counselling and psychotherapy can help with traumas such as rape, accidents, fire, personal injury, assault, and mugging. Trauma and post-traumatic-stress disorder (PTSD) respond well to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Oftentimes, individuals may suppress traumatic memories, and part of trauma counselling will involve identifying associated feelings and emotions to overcome traumatic experiences.
What can psychotherapists and counsellors do?
Traumatic experiences are situations that are overwhelming, frightening and difficult to control. It can be helpful to process traumas with a professional. If ignored or covered up, deeper troubles can surface later on.
At Creative Devotional Counselling, trauma counselling is designed around your specific needs. We are able to target your traumatic symptoms whether they include anxiety, depression, guilt, sleep disturbances, flashbacks or nightmares.
