How do people deal with difficult events that change their lives? The death of a loved one, loss of a job, serious illness, natural disasters, witnessing a death, domestic abuse, and other traumatic events are all examples of very challenging and traumatic life experiences. Many people react to such circumstances with a flood of strong emotions and a sense of uncertainty. A traumatic event may cause mental, emotional, psychological, and physical harm. At the Avery Centre our therapists are versed in many types of trauma-related therapeutic approaches. We recognize that everyone has to cope with losing someone or something they love; and for some, this can become a traumatic event especially if it follows a lifetime of stressful events. We approach grief, trauma, and PTSD treatment with compassion and understanding.
Avery Centre Trauma Therapy Program is specifically designed for children and adults suffering from trauma, grief, loss, and/or PTSD. Avery Centre offers individual and family psychotherapy, along with support groups and guided meditation to help the client begin to process the event in a safe, peaceful, relaxing environment. Other services include Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for PTSD and play therapy for children.
