Trauma Counselling

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is the name given to a collection of symptoms that an individual can experience after living through a traumatic event such as a car accident, a sexual assault, or from serving as a First Responder. After a traumatic event, our brains adapt to protect us from further threat. These adaptions can generate symptoms that are often severe including intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, depression, addiction, insomnia, and digestive issues.

In some cases, these adaptations continue to impact the individual beyond the original threat. This is where serious problems can begin to surface and cause disruption to the individual’s daily life or functioning. Counselling has been proven to be extremely effective in treating trauma by applying techniques to safely reprocess these memories or events as well as restoring a sense of normalcy and emotional well-being.

Ali Diebold, Social Worker will actively listen to your concerns and then apply an approach that best supports you to sustain tangible outcomes. After a treatment plan is established, it is strongly recommended that the appropriate number of sessions be undertaken due to the depth of counselling generally required to heal trauma.
