The PATH Program (Practical Applications in Trauma Healing) is a culturally-informed trauma program that utilizes a variety of therapeutic techniques to alleviate the symptoms that result from childhood sexual abuse and rape.
I specialise in treating:
Women who have been raped
Women who were sexually abused as children
This program is also appropriate for women who have had abortion(s) and those who have suffered early pregnancy loss (miscarriage) as these are also traumas.
Symptoms, which include panic attacks, anxiety, mood swings, depression, eating disorders, flashbacks, phobias, hypervigilance, isolation, nightmares, insomnia and more, are all common results of trauma.
Techniques used, make it possible to process a trauma without re-living it. Clients are encouraged to actively question the assumption that one is permanently damaged and is a “victim”. This is not my personal belief and not the belief held by trauma therapists. Symptoms CAN be alleviated to bring great comfort.
You can benefit from the PATH Program in vital ways:
Learn to improve trust and intimacy with yourself & others
Correct a distorted sense of self
Learn to love your body
Alleviate feelings of guilt and shame
Bring in new ways of thinking & being in the world
Live your authentic life.
The PATH Program is facilitated in all aspects by me in my role as a Certified Trauma Therapist and an EMDRIA Certified Therapist and is only available as a one-on-one undertaking (there are no groups). Privacy is assured.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, I generally will not undertake major trauma-work with you until the baby has been delivered and weaned. I can do other work with you until that time that is extremely supportive. However, if it is determined that trauma therapy is of greater benefit than harm to you, I will need to speak with your healthcare providers before continuing.
If you are pregnant and it is deemed that EMDR (a form of trauma treatment that I may undertake with you) is of a greater help than harm to you - I will require letters of consent/permission from both your ob/gyn and another licensed medical doctor - who have a full understanding of the effect of bi-lateral stimulation before we proceed.
