Working through past trauma to live a better life today
What would your mental health be like if you could truly heal from traumatic memories?
There are so many aspects of life that are going well. Getting married, starting university, launching a new career, pregnancy— these are goals that you have been dreaming about for years. But, despite all of your earlier excitement, you’re struggling to keep it together. Your past keeps coming back to haunt you. That car accident, the sexual assault, the childhood abuse, the miscarriage, the break-up, things that you felt were “over” keep bothering you today. You find you’re having a hard time managing your day-to-day life. It’s hard to concentrate, your anxiety is through the roof, and your relationships are suffering. It feels like you have zero control over your mental health. To cope, you’ve resorted to numerous coping mechanisms, some of which have been effective and others that have created further consequences (i.e. substance use, emotional eating, avoidance).
Traumatic memories do not have to define your life. You deserve to feel better and soak up all the opportunities life has to offer. At Kasi Shan Therapy, my job is to support you in addressing these earlier wounds so that you can feel in control of your mental health. We work to heal from these traumatic events using a variety of counselling approaches so that you can thrive.
How do I begin my healing?
- Arrange a time for a free consultation (we can do this online or via phone/email).
- During this chat, we will get to know one another. You will have space to express your treatment goals, and also clarify if you feel I am a good fit for you as a therapist.
- We establish a treatment plan that feels comfortable for you, and we begin the work
- We continue working at a pace that is effective and challenging until your goals are met
