EFFECTIVE COUNSELLING SERVICES
Counselling typically begins with a careful evaluation to determine the relative contributions of trauma, temperament, biology, and other factors to each client’s presenting concerns and to help us gain a complete picture of each client’s strengths, resources, and areas of need. Based on this evaluation, and in close collaboration with the client, our clinicians develop an individualized treatment plan.
Our clinicians utilize an integrative approach to treatment that draws on psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, EMDR, interpersonal/relational, experiential, family systems, and other clinical frameworks. Our general philosophy recognizes both the physiological and psychological impacts of trauma and the importance of paying attention to both through treatment that bridges mind and body. In addition, North Trauma & Resource Center clinicians have extensive training and experience in a variety of specialized treatment modalities.
