Heal From Childhood Trauma And Find Relief From Distressing Events

We’re experienced childhood trauma counsellors in Coquitlam using leading methods that can help you heal from troubling or disturbing childhood experiences….

The primary needs of a child are for love, safety and protection. If these needs are unmet, or worse violated, the consequences can be traumatic and last a lifetime.

Childhood trauma can have a lifelong effect. And while kids are resilient, they’re not made of stone.

Simply put, traumatic experiences make it difficult to become who we are fully capable of becoming.

Childhood trauma makes us feel helpless and incapable of handling the problems we face as adults.

It can take substantial time, effort, and tremendous courage to begin the path to healing from trauma. But we’re here for you.

Emotional trauma from childhood neglect

Adults who as children grow up in a household where their emotional needs were met with avoidance, rejection, scolding or even over-indulgence are often times left to figure out how to deal with their emotional needs on their own.

The challenge, however, is that you don’t know what you don’t know, and if as a child no one ever taught you that your feelings and emotions are important and valid, you may have grown up to become an adult who suppresses, avoids or ignores them in order to cope.

Common symptoms of Trauma

  • Difficulty handling or expressing emotions
  • Experiencing fear, anxiety, or depression
  • Sense that something is ‘missing’ in you
  • Isolation
  • Self-destructive behaviors
  • Difficulty remembering large portions of childhood
  • Impulsive decision-making
  • Feelings of shame or guilt
  • Attraction to destructive relationships (in romance, work, friendships)
If any of this sounds familiar to you and you are tired of living in this seemingly endless cycle, you deserve to have the closure and freedom that you want.

How Can We Help

Through the use of a gentle, neuroplastic approach called Lifespan Integration (LI) we can help to free you from the suffering that PTSD and/or developmental trauma inflicts. Lifespan Integration helps people to feel less anxious, have fewer flashbacks, and feel more resilient. It promotes an integration of memories which helps your brain to heal itself.
