Trauma Counselling - SafeHaven Trauma Centre
This is a talking therapy focused on helping people use their current knowledge, information and coping skills in better ways. It supports you where you are, rather than focusing on change.
What happens in a session?
It is a supportive therapy that encourages you to re-engage coping strategies and skills you may have ceased using, as well as understand more about how current circumstances are affecting you. At the end of therapy ideally you know yourself better and have more knowledge on what coping strategies you have available to help you through challenging circumstances.
Counselling is a therapy that helps you activate the resources you already have but were perhaps not utilising.
Counselling is generally short term, usually requiring 6-12 weekly sessions.
Sessions usually last for around 60 minutes.
