Blueknot foundation recently stated the 1 in 5 people living in Australia have a history of trauma. This is an alarming figure and often many of us don't realize that those around us could be affected. There is also a lack of available services too those living in regional Australia, such as Albury, Wodonga and The Riverina.
Trauma can come in many forms from the most known of childhood abuse, to the less known such as immigration, cultural trauma and the effects of sudden loss, such as suicide. Trauma is also very unique and individual in that it affects people in many different ways. Two people can go through a similar traumatic experience and respond in 2 completely different ways.
Trauma counselling is now available in the Albury and Wodonga region as Matthew Povey, a Counsellor who moved from Sydney wishes to aid those in the community who have been or still are affected by trauma. Trauma further has greater reaching affects in our lives, from our jobs to even hurting our loved ones. Furthermore it is often difficult, and sometimes people even feel shame to talk about trauma and what has happened to them. This is why it is extremely important to speak to someone qualified to help you address it.
Trauma often affects all aspects of an individuals life, from their relationships with others, our jobs and our mental health. Due to the many different responses to trauma it is very difficult to categorize and can often be mistaken for other mental health issues. Many health professionals also struggle to understand the wider impacts that trauma can have on us as individuals due to a lack of education, this is why it can be useful working with a counselor who can.
Recently in Australia the National Inquiry into Institutional Abuse by the Royal Comission has been investigating these facts. This has brought many stories to the surface that were previously unheard around trauma, child abuse and neglect. This is the perfect time, if you have experienced trauma of any kind to speak up and ask fro help.
Do the best for your today so you can live a better tomorrow.
