COVID 19 Update

Due to the social distancing restrictions, Mindfully Well has now moved to delivering services in mixed modalities - in person and online. This does not change the effectiveness of the therapy we provide nor does it mean that you need to go without mental health intervention. If you are a new client looking to book in, please send us an enquiry through the 'Contact Us' page.

Therapy That Works

trauma

/ˈtrɔːmə,ˈtraʊmə/

 

Trauma is from the Ancient Greek - the literal translation is 'Wound'.

We ALL experience Trauma, it is an emotional wound and it forms the basis of all psychopathology.

At Mindfully Well we help you to understand how your experiences resulted in emotional wounds and provide you with appropriate therapy and supporting tools to resolve the impact of your experiences.

Survival is Miraculous - Recovery is a Choice

How We Help

Many people believe that we just need to suffer with our mental health challenges.  How many times have people made you feel like you should just "Get over it!".  We believe that your ability to recover is tied to your understanding of how trauma has impacted your life and resolving that impact.

We support the trauma model of psychopathology - which means that we believe that people have understandable reactions to traumatic events, which affects their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  We take this approach rather than viewing our clients as suffering from mental illness.  We recognise that all humans have negative experiences, but how we approach those experiences defines how we manage our mental health and wellbeing.

Trauma models emphasise that traumatic experiences are more common, and more significant, in consideration of causation of mental health issues, than has often been accepted in modern approaches to psychological problems.

Everyone has experienced trauma, it's just the level and complexity of the trauma that differs between people.  Our therapists are normal human beings who are able to assist others to see that trauma leaves its mark, but we can help to remove its impact.

The impact from any traumatic experience is directly related to our sense of responsibility in the experience, our lack of control or power in the face of the experience and our ability attribute meaning to why we had the experience.  The key to recovery rests in our ability to feel a sense a purpose after the experience.

Trauma is normal, life is challenging, but truly empowered people seek to recover.  Validation promotes action, in this way our psychologists can support you in your recovery.

The Trouble With Trauma

In her new book "The Trouble With Trauma" (coming in September 2020), our Principal Psychologist, Kerry Howard, recognises that the key to recovery is being able to have a clear sense of purpose for our lives. 

Human beings experience trauma because life can be challenging and difficult.  Life throws us curve balls – we just need to learn to duck and weave and recognise that sometimes we'll get hit. 

Recognise the impact, gain insight, choose to take action.  

 

"Show me someone who is truly inspirational and I’ll show you someone who has experienced difficulty and learned from their experience." - Kerry Howard

Without storms and sun – there can be no life.  No Green – No Growth.  It is the combination that is powerful.  Revel in the storm because when the rainbow appears, the universe reminds us that there is hope.  The pure joy of all of the colours in life, presented together, none more important than the other.

Don’t be a passive survivor in your life, let us support you to become a persistent recoverer
