Counselling improves a whole range of dysfunctional and addictive behaviours, reduces long term stress, anxiety and depression.
Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (c-PTSD) is caused by long term and repeated physical, sexual and emotional abuse. These events can occur in childhood or adulthood and affect an individual’s self-esteem, ability to form healthy intimate relationships, mental capacity and capability to be economically active, to remain in work and be successful in long term employment.
Emotional trauma can destabilise and demoralise a person’s beliefs about the future via loss of hope. Complex trauma can undermine expectations about life. For instance, fear that life will end abruptly, or early, or anticipation that normal life events won’t occur, can affect access to education, ability to have a significant and committed relationship and good opportunities for work.
Additionally, destructive, often unconscious behaviour patterns underpin alcoholism, drug addictions can be responsible for provoking physical violence and domestic abuse.
