Renaissance Wellbeing Services (RWS) offers online counselling by a professional mental health practitioner. You can access support from the comfort of your home via internet conferencing (ZOOM). Quality evidence-based approaches are available to help you manage life stresses that are causing depression, anxiety, and trauma symptoms.
Trauma-Informed Approaches to Counselling
Trauma is not an event that happens to us, rather, it is the impact left in the body and mind following adverse experiences. Specific events like sexual abuse, war, domestic violence, natural disasters, and so forth can leave lasting effects on the nervous system which, if left unresolved, can interfere with day to day living and finding joy.
Similarly, “smaller” traumas like harassment, oppression, relational conflicts, institutional (religious- and work-based) abuse, and other ongoing stresses can place immense strain on mental health. Many incidents can seem insignificant in themselves, however, collectively impact wellbeing as much as bigger traumas. Counselling can help develop resilience and identify individualised strategies to help people work through their personal dilemmas.
Counselling with Creativity
In addition to more traditional client-centred talk based therapy, RWS also offers the option of incorporating creative modalities into therapy. Counselling that incorporates art-based activities supports wellbeing by using parts of the brain that are not activated through talking alone.
