ARE YOU TIRED OF TRAUMA AFFECTING YOUR LIFE?

Trauma creates distorted and maladaptive beliefs/thoughts about ourselves, others and the world, such as blaming yourself or believing the world is unsafe. This contributes towards PTSD, anxiety, and depressive symptoms, in addition to poor, and often destructive life patterns and behaviours that stay with us until we challenge and change them.

Oftentimes we don’t even realize we are living our lives according to these trauma beliefs. But you will notice unhealthy and often destructive behaviours and patterns in our life such as:

  • Unhealthy or abusive relationships

  • Control/power issues

  • Difficulty trusting

  • Intimacy issues

  • Low self esteem

  • Safety issues

 

Working one-on-one with your therapist, the CPT program deconstructs these beliefs and replaces them with healthy supporting beliefs. As you change your beliefs/thoughts, you change your behaviours, which reduce the PTSD, anxiety and depression symptoms.

 

To see if you would be a good fit for the program, take the brief assessment below.

If you score 38 or higher, then you would benefit from this program.

 

If you’re tired of dealing with the impacts of trauma controlling your life, then this highly effective 12-16 week program is for you. 

The goal is to help develop a more balanced and realistic understanding of the traumatic events, reduce the distress and PTSD symptoms, improving over well-being.
