Therapy and counselling for trauma, PTSD, and complex trauma, from a post-traumatic growth perspective, Melbourne and online world wide.
Everyone experiences trauma of one kind or another in life, although we rarely call it trauma.
In fact, people often don’t realise that many of the issues and symptoms they struggle with are the result of traumatic experiences, remembered or not.
Trauma impacts on our lives in many different ways but you have a choice; it can either restrict you, or you can use it to grow and make you more than before.
People often hope to bounce back to normal afterwards.
But what if you could do better than just bouncing back?
What if tough times and traumatic experiences could teach you new skills and strengths, give you new insights and self-awareness?
That’s what trauma therapy at Cultivating Confidence is all about:
Healing and growing from trauma and adversity to become more than before.

Difficulty connecting with others
