Counselling for Car Accident & Anxiety Relief

Counselling for Car Accident and Anxiety Relief

After a car accident, our nervous system may be stuck in survival mode. We may feel a lot of stress and fear and the body is not able to return itself to a state of equilibrium. This is why therapies that address both the mind and the body are so effective at alleviating the distress that results from trauma. 

We use evidence-based treatment modalities to help clients resolve trauma by integrating the memories of what happened and calming the body’s stress response. 

Because the nervous system is still operating as though the threat remains present, somatic therapies transform traumatic memories into regular memories, and help reach an adaptive resolution of symptoms.

“Beneath the surface of the protective parts of trauma survivors there exists an undamaged essence, a Self that is confident, curious, and calm, a Self that has been sheltered from destruction by the various protectors that have emerged in their efforts to ensure survival. Once those protectors trust that it is safe to separate, the Self will spontaneously emerge, and the parts can be enlisted in the healing process.”
