What is Trauma Counselling?
Clinically speaking, a traumatic event is something that has in some way threatened someone’s life. Witnessing a threat to another person’s life may also be deemed as a traumatic experience. In order to find a healthy way to process these experiences, speaking to a mental health professional is a smart choice.
Trauma counselling is a form of talk therapy. Here, your therapist will focus on treating emotional and mental health issues that have been caused by trauma.
During trauma counselling, a mental health professional will provide the patient with an opportunity to discuss their experiences in an empathetic and supportive setting. The therapist will also provide tools and strategies needed to cope with ongoing difficulties that have resulted from traumatic experiences.
