Online Trauma Therapy Ontario

Many of us have been impacted by events that are distressing and frightening. Sometimes, these events are so impactful that they produce a long-term change in our thoughts and behaviours. If not addressed, these events can cause lasting effects. 

The good news is that these effects don’t need to be permanent. If you feel that something from your past is impacting your current life or holding you back from the life you want to live, trauma therapy may be the answer. Our experienced counsellors offer online trauma therapy to the province of Ontario.

How Does Online Trauma Counselling Work?

When you experience a traumatic event or multiple traumatic events, your brain can physically change, making it difficult for your brain to function the same way it did before the event(s). This can leave lasting changes in an individual’s sense of self, safety and overall wellbeing. 

While trauma can change the brain, so can therapy. Healing is possible. Through working with an experienced trauma therapist, you can learn to rework and build new, positive pathways in your brain.  

There are many different psychotherapy modalities that have been shown to rework the brain following trauma. Our team brings forward many unique and evidence-based trauma therapies, including:

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Somatic Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Ego-state therapy
Attachment therapy

Who Can Benefit From Virtual Trauma Therapy?

Individuals who have experienced significant trauma can present symptoms such as intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and/or emotional reactions. These symptoms can look like recurrent, stressful memories of past traumatic events, nightmares, avoiding places/people or specific triggers, hopelessness, memory problems, being easily frightened, trouble sleeping, trouble sleeping, and more. 

Regardless of if you’ve been formally diagnosed with PTSD or C-PTSD, online therapy for trauma can help you to manage the emotional, physical, and mental impacts of past trauma – big or small. 

With online therapy, you can address the emotional, physical, and mental impacts of a traumatic event from the comfort of your own home. By processing your reactions to the event in a safe environment, you’ll be able to create safe coping strategies to overcome and manage your symptoms.
