Are you a survivor of childhood abuse?
Growing up with childhood abuse is a painful and difficult experience, whether it is physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse. The associated stigma may make it hard to talk about it.
When I first started my healing journey, I felt scared and I did not know to expect. However, breaking the silence and getting counselling helped me transform my pain in ways I had never imaged before.
Recovery is a choice and a responsibility
While we weren’t responsible for what happened to us as children, we have the responsibility to heal it as adults. While healing is a choice, it is the only choice that leads to recovery. While there are the effects of trauma, there is also post-traumatic growth. Full recovery is possible, however it requires that we confront our trauma and pain, heal ourselves and become whole again. If you do not choose healing, nothing will ever change.

Counselling provides you with a safe space and allows you to re-build a life you might have never imagined. Through counselling, you will recover from the effects of childhood abuse and to become whole.
