Trauma Counselling

Life can create unfortunate folds in ways we least expect it. From personal tragedy to violent crimes, it is normal to experience traumatic stress after a stressful event.

Trauma Counselling 

At Discovery Family Therapy, we understand that trauma can profoundly affect individuals and families, leaving deep emotional scars that may seem insurmountable. Our trauma counselling services are designed to provide a compassionate and supportive environment where healing can begin and resilience can be built.

Trauma Counselling Process:


Our approach to trauma counselling is rooted in the humanistic perspective, which emphasizes each person's inherent worth and potential for self-healing. The process begins with creating a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can feel secure sharing their experiences. Our therapists are trained to listen empathetically and validate each individual's feelings and experiences.

We recognize that trauma affects everyone differently; therefore, our counselling is tailored to meet each person's unique needs. We work collaboratively to identify the impact of trauma on clients' lives and develop personalized strategies to address these challenges. We aim to empower clients to regain control over their lives and move forward with confidence and hope.

EMDR Therapy:


One of the evidence-based treatments we offer is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is a powerful psychotherapy technique that has been proven effective for treating trauma. It involves guiding one through a series of eye movements or other bilateral stimulation while they recall traumatic memories. This process helps desensitize the emotional impact of the memories and allows clients to reprocess them more healthily.

EMDR therapy is based on the premise that the mind can heal from psychological trauma just as the body recovers from physical trauma. When a disturbing event occurs, it can get locked in the nervous system with the original pictures, sounds, thoughts, and feelings. EMDR therapy helps the brain process these memories and resume normal healing. The experience is still remembered, but the fight, flight or freeze response from the original event is resolved.
