Trauma & PTSD

Feeling overwhelmed as a result of a distressing event or an accumulation of events?  Trauma can occur further to overwhelming distress that exceeds what we have the ability to emotionally integrate and cope with. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can develop further to exposure to a terrifying event or to experiencing events in which intense physical harm was threatened or occurred. Symptoms of trauma could include persistent feelings of anger, despair, and/or hopelessness; unpredictable emotions; physical symptoms; and flashbacks of the event.

At Exhale Therapy, compassionate counselling is provided to address the individual experiences and symptoms of trauma through exploration of the thoughts and beliefs underlying the traumatic response. Our therapists offer support and skills to manage the emotional triggers and strengthen adaptive management of the impact of the experience.

If you are in the Kitchener-Waterloo area and experienced trauma, please call 226-338-4158 or email to schedule an appointment or book a free 15-minute consult.
