We believe you have a right to tell your story. Counselling can help you to see your past experiences in perspective, as to where you are now with your feelings and emotions, and where you would like to be
We all respond to traumatic events in different ways. Often there are no visible signs, but trauma can have serious emotional reactions. Shock and denial after the event is a normal reaction.

18. Suicidal actions and behaviours, failed attempts to suicide.
19. Taking the perpetrator role / angry aggressor in relationships.
20. Unexplained but intense fears of people, places and things.
These same symptoms can be applied for survivors already working in therapy.
Attending regular therapy does not mean the clients have resolved their trauma issues or that they are even working in that general direction. Many therapy clients will continue to deny, dissociate, and refuse to look at their trauma even if they are aware of their daily struggles.
If you are experiencing a number of the symptoms listed above, ask yourself if you are truly ready to address your trauma issues, or if you find it more comfortable to continue living with these struggles.
Is it harder to face how you were abused and who abused you? Or is it harder to live a life full of depression, anxiety, thoughts of suicide, troubled relationships, extreme fears, physical pain, and addictions?
Running from your trauma history will not help you feel better. In the short-run, you might not have to face the issues, but the cost in the long-run of unresolved trauma weighs more heavily than you might suspect.
Your life can be better than it is.
