- Trauma Resolution

Trauma is a relationship with an experience – the meaning of the experience for us, as well as the facts of the traumatic situation – are what cause traumatic symptoms such as fear and anxiety, numbing, difficulty concentrating, and sleep disturbance.
Whether you have suffered a recent traumatic experience, such as a death, a motor vehicle accident, an assault, or historic trauma, such as childhood abuse or neglect, Fraser Valley Trauma Counsellor Pauline Carey, can help you achieve relief.
When life’s stresses become overwhelming and we are struggling to cope, Life Stress Reduction (LSR) can help. LSR allows us to make a structured assessment of the issues that are creating difficulties and prioritize these. Even this initial process often brings relief, as it helps us identify and face what is causing our stress.
Life Stress Reduction counselling then helps us to examine our stressors in a safe, structured environment. LSR allows us to go below the surface, to increase awareness of an area of difficulty, to expand understanding of it and to resolve it. Resolution may take the form of feeling more at peace with an issue, and/or developing an action plan to follow. Either way, clarity and greater satisfaction with the issues are the likely outcome.
