Trauma Counselling

Trauma Counselling Trauma Counselling also includes counselling for individuals facing terminal or life threatening illnesses, such as cancer or AIDS. We understand the sensitivity of traumatic experiences people have suffered and therefore provide a safe space for people to talk and help people through the difficult process. 

Traumatic situations very often, don’t only affect the individual that was directly involved, but also close friends and family. Trauma Counselling sessions can also help loved ones deal with traumatic situations and will give them the ability to support the individual who was directly affected more effectively.
