Trauma Pathway

For children who have been through trauma, the impact can be profound and far-reaching. It can lead to depression, generalised anxiety disorder, nightmares, sleeping and eating issues, difficulties with academic or social skills and even physical symptoms such as aches and pains.

On this pathway, our counsellor will support the young person to process their trauma and help them understand its connection with their ongoing difficulties. They’ll be given space to heel and build their resilience in order to face future adversity.
