come to terms with the impact of child abuse or other childhood traumas on your wellbeing today. But perhaps the biggest obstacle to personal growth, our esteem, and wellbeing is not what actually happened or what you learned- but what you haven’t learned. Just as abuse changes a brain, so do love, positive thinking, new habits, and hope also change us. Focusing on resiliency and taking action- on the things we can change rather than those we can’t- in therapy focused on building resiliency to cope with childhood issues has been successful in my practice. The counsellor’s role as supportive, non-judgemental guide can help you work through painful revelations, but more importantly, we work together on breaking through so you can have confidence in how you choose to think and feel for yourself.
