Trauma and Abuse Counselling works to assist people whose lives have been adversely affected through being abused or traumatized either physically and/or psychologically. This may include sexual abuse, violent physical attack, bullying at home and school or in the workplace, domestic violence, or witnessing or being involved in a traumatic incident or accident. The Trauma and Abuse Counsellors provide support, guidance and resources for the client to overcome the trauma and begin to implement strategies and positive life habits that allow them to live a normal, balanced life again. Trauma and Abuse Counsellors must also have a thorough understanding of referral networks and the cycle of domestic violence as some of their clients may still be experiencing abuse and require guidance in removing themselves from danger.
