Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event such as an accident, abused, repeated terrifying events or natural disaster. Trauma survivors often experience shock and denial after the traumatic event. Subsequent reactions may include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. 

 

While some trauma survivors subsequently recover, some may benefit from the help of professional counsellors or psychotherapist. 

Counselling and Psychotherapy Services at Restoring Peace

At Restoring Peace, Counselling processes include comprehensive history taking and assessing the significant events, pattern, symptoms and impacts of trauma in our client's life. We then present our assessment and work with our clients to define their counselling goals.

 

The strength-based approach includes:

  • Helping our client identify their coping mechanisms.

  • Strengthening positive coping/negative coping.

  • Exploring alternatives.

 

We also guide our clients with helpful resources and techniques to use in between sessions. Our objective is to help our clients heal from their past attachment and emotional injuries and learn new approaches that will lead to a renewed sense of self. We do not promise quick remedy, but we promise to do our best for our clients.

At Restoring Peace, we take seriously the importance of giving our clients a sense of safety to process their issues during counselling and therapy sessions. We support your healing from trauma with respect and dignity, regardless of your race, spiritual orientation, culture and family background.

Resolve your past. Restore your peace. Regain charge of your life!​
