Trauma is a complicated issue that impacts on many, many lives. Trauma is often associated with things such as war, crime and abuse and I certainly work with people and couples who have experienced all of these things.
Trauma refers to how we respond to events that are overwhelming, distressing, painful and often confusing.
I offer support to those who have had trauma in their childhood and those who have been traumatised as adults.
Often I work with people who have experienced multiple traumatic events throughout their lives.
The kinds of trauma I work with include:
Sexual abuse / sexual violence / exploitation
Medical and / or health related trauma
Issues relating to bullying
Work related trauma
I am trained in a variety of psychological models that are specifically aimed at reducing the distress caused by traumatic life events.
I work with people and couples.
