Trauma encompasses traumatic events such as assault, accidents, natural disasters and all kinds of abuse. The majority of people who experience a traumatic event find that through talking about their experience they can feel psychological healing. A small minority however may go on to develop PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (please see the PTSD page in the drop-down menu for more details). For those that have experienced traumatic events, counselling may be helpful to explore your feelings and thoughts around it to gain insights into your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Counselling can help you to move forward with new perspectives and self-understanding and acceptance.
