Trauma is very common, and many people have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. Trauma happens when an event overwhelms our coping resources and leaves us feeling helpless. The good news is that trauma does not have to define our destiny. As Peter Levine says, “trauma is a fact of life. It does not, however, have to be a life sentence”.
How can therapy help?
Trauma is multi-faceted and at Roya Counselling, my goal is to address the different facets of your traumatic experience. My hope is to help you develop strategies to cope with the symptoms of trauma on a day-to-day basis and ultimately to lessen the frequency of your symptoms. The road to healing trauma is definitely not short and easy, but my years of experience with clients has shown me that it is possible and very rewarding.
I am Roya Vojdani, MA, and my goal is to use my years of clinical experience, personal life experience and my training to help you live your life more fully. I know that allowing another person into your inner life is an important decision and I strive to honour your trust and create a safe space in which you can blossom.
I believe in the inherent resilience of my clients and my stance towards my clients is non-judgmental, compassionate and curious.
I feel very privileged to hear about my client’s hopes, goals and pains and witness my clients slowly recovering their peace, happiness and livelihood.
There is always hope, even when it is hard to see it.
