Abuse and Trauma Counselling

Counselling at Interact is able to help those who have or are suffering from Trauma and Abuse. A specialization in assisting people who are experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is available.

This counselling is appropriate to those who have experienced past traumatic incidents where abuse may or may not have been attached to the incident. These experiences may have impacted so deeply that memories, sounds and sights associated with the past trauma can block that person's ability to get on with their life. For some the trauma is still a current experience. Counselling can assist a traumatized person with early interventionto establish strategies and plans to maximize immediate safety, resourcing the person with other appropriate community help and information where necessary. Counsellors will work alongside victims of trauma and abuse and with other family members where appropriate to support their recovery.
