Abuse in families, workplaces, relationships and the community can take many forms including but not limited to, physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and emotional abuse. 

The impact of abuse is traumatizing and can have long lasting effects. 

Therapy for trauma and abuse involves providing a safe, compassionate  and supportive environment for individuals to process and heal from their past experiences. 

Our team is highly trained and specializes in working with Trauma and Abuse by helping you to explore and understand the impact of trauma and abuse on your mental and emotional well-being with compassion. Therapy may involve techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Hypnotherapy, Somatic Therapy, Trauma Informed Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness practices to help you better manage symptoms, regulate emotions, and develop coping strategies.
