Sexual Abuse Counselling ►

Empower yourself with the support of an experienced therapist.

1 in 3 women, and 1 in 6 men have been sexually abused and most don't talk about it. Let me help you tell your story.

I will make sure you are supported. I will encourage you to go at your own pace. I will teach you how to feel better about yourself.

Healing Without Reliving ►

Addressing your past doesn't mean you need to relive it.

I work with you and your specific situation teaching practical coping skills.

Helping you change your story as a radical act of acceptance, healing and empowerment.

PTSD Symptoms ►

PTSD symptoms include intrusive and obsessive thoughts about the incident, nightmares, flashbacks, avoidance, hypervigilance, and other anxious behaviors.

Also, knowing your fears are greater than what would be warranted for the situation, but not feeling this.

 



Psychotherapy for Trauma, Abuse, and PTSD

Sydney CBD Counsellor and Therapist with Experience Treating Trauma & PTSD

If you are having trouble healing from a traumatic experience I may be able to help.  I work with trauma including traumatic accidents, childhood abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, and PTSD.

I am trained and work with trauma modalities including:

  • Level II trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing)
  • EFT / Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique)

It can take a great leap of faith to address past abuse and trauma. I will provide a supportive and safe environment to assist you in addressing your past in a way that works for you. You will be able to do as much or as little as you are comfortable with as I recognize each person is on their own healing journey.

I want to help you to get the courage to change your story and the courage to heal your life. Let's talk more.

Counselling and Psychotherapy for Childhood Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Domestic Abuse and Other Trauma

Past traumatic experiences have a way of sneaking into our current life. If you have a history of abuse or childhood sexual abuse, violence, traumatic accident or other trauma you may find yourself experiencing some of the following:

  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • nightmares, possibly even flashbacks
  • intense fear and focus on your safety
  • or alternately, acting in an unsafe and careless manner
  • lots of unwanted nervous feelings or feeling out of control
  • low grade, lingering depression sometimes lasting for many years
  • difficulty imagining your future, or an inability visualizing good things in your future or using good judgment for your future (see also acting in an unsafe manner)

Abuse Counselling and Trauma Therapy at your own pace

Working through past trauma is a highly individual and personal experience. You can go as fast or slow as works for you. You can address everything, or just a little bit. You have complete control of the process.

Our work together will help you feel supported and safe, and provide you with healthy coping skills including anxiety reducing tools, and grounding techniques. I also work with other established techniques like EMDR to help you challenge past negative stories and turn them into stories of strength and hope.

If this sounds like something you are interested in pursuing, let me know. I have a lot of training and experience in this area and am honored to walk this healing path with you.
