Stress & Trauma

In small doses, stress helps you to stay focused, energetic, and alert. But when stress becomes overwhelming, it can damage your health, your mood, your productivity, your relationships, and your quality of life.

The emotional aftermath of traumatic events can be every bit as devastating as any physical damage. Whether trauma stems from a personal tragedy, a natural disaster, or other overwhelming life experiences, it can shatter our sense of security, making us feel vulnerable, helpless, and even numb.



Everyone has unique responses to stressful situations. Counselling will help you with learning different ways to deal with the tension, help focus on what is calming and in control, and develop a plan to better handle situations as they arise.
