Individual

In the course of a lifetime, most of us will experience several personally traumatic incidents. The break up of an important relationship, serious conflict within your family, a serious or life-threatening health problem, the death of a loved one, car accident, financial problems, continuous stress at work, a humiliating or deeply disappointing experience, being victimized by a violent act, etc., can all cause psychological upset. Seeking the advice and perspective of a counsellor can help you regain your certainty and help rebuild your confidence.
