Trauma Informed Care

Trauma Informed Care/Practice is a strengths-based framework which is founded on five core principles:

  • Safety
  • Trustworthiness
  • Choice
  • Collaboration
  • Empowerment – as well as respect to diversity.

As a trauma informed counsellor I take every precaution to do no harm or to re-traumatise the person with whom I am working.

I see the survivor of trauma as a unique person who has experienced extremely abnormal situations and has managed as best they could.
