If you have endured a trauma, you may be feeling numb, detached from reality and have difficulty sleeping. These are all completely normal reactions to shock and are your body’s way of coping with the first few weeks after a traumatic event.

We understand what you need from a trauma center and will help you to heal and overcome your trauma in a sensitive, caring and understanding way.
Our highly trained therapists, counselors and wellbeing coaches are ready and waiting to create a trauma treatment plan that is best suited to your individual needs and trauma history.
What is trauma informed care?
Put simply, trauma informed care is the awareness of trauma coupled with an understanding of the impact that trauma has on a person physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Our trauma treatment specialists can realize the impact of trauma, recognize the symptoms of trauma, and respond with the right care.
We offer outpatient trauma treatment, and trauma informed care that offers help for those who are seeking treatment from the comfort of their own homes.
Why is trauma informed care so important?
If you have experienced a trauma, more than anything, you need support and understanding from those around you. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to cope with someone who has experienced trauma and may not even recognize the signs of trauma that you are showing.
This why it is vital that you undertake trauma informed therapy that is carried out by professional therapists and counselors who will be able to work through your trauma and help you come out the other-side stronger and more resilient than ever before.
The aim of trauma care is to develop an understanding of what has happened to a person and to determine the impact that this has had on their overall mental health. Once this has been established, you can start the process of healing from trauma with the support of our trained therapists.
