Counselling for Trauma & Abuse

Sometimes life throws up the unexpected and we can find ourselves struggling to deal with and move forward from these painful events. Whether an event from the past, an ongoing issue, or something that happened suddenly, traumatic experiences can impact us in ways that make us feel stuck and unable to move forward. Our daily well-being may be affected by intrusive thoughts, painful memories and accompanying feelings such as shock, sadness, anger, anxiety and confusion. For others, dissociation may be a prominent feature.

Traumatic events such as serious accidents, the sudden death of a loved one, or personal experience of violence and abuse can be hard to live with and tend to impact heavily on wellbeing.

Through therapy, I will help you to explore your feelings and understand what’s going on for you in a gentle, sensitive and informed way.
