Our Trauma Counselling Services
Our therapists use Polyvagal Theory to help clients understand their body’s response to stress and trauma. By exploring the connection between the autonomic nervous system and emotional regulation, we can help you develop strategies to manage anxiety, fear, and depression.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based psychotherapy designed to help individuals process and heal from traumatic experiences. Our trained therapists use EMDR to help clients reduce the intensity of distressing memories and promote adaptive coping mechanisms.
Somatic therapy focuses on the connection between the mind and body, helping clients to release trapped emotions and tension. Our therapists integrate somatic techniques into sessions to help you reconnect with your body and process trauma in a safe and supportive environment.
Sensorimotor therapy is a body-centered approach that combines cognitive, emotional, and physical techniques to address the impact of trauma on the body. Our therapists use this approach to help you develop greater awareness and control over your body’s response to traumatic memories and triggers.
