Trauma Counselling provides people with an opportunity to discuss their experiences within an empathetic supportive setting. It is used to help people develop strategies for dealing with their ongoing difficulties that result from these experiences. Some people experience things as more traumatic than others and therefore will need help in coping with the emotional burdens of an event or situation.
