Stress & Trauma Centre

The Stress & Trauma Centre is a newly designed clinic that balances the rigorous mental and emotional work of therapy with natural light and soothing decor, promoting a sense of calm and relaxation. Natural elements, timber and plant life, have been carefully arranged to promote stress reduction; while the soft lighting induces a sense of comfort and coziness. Even the chairs have been selected to induce a sense of protection and personal safety.

The Stress & Trauma Centre is run by a team of professional psychologists dedicated to and focused on providing expert psychological care to adults who wish to build a better life for themselves, free from inner-criticism, emotional turmoil, and relationship struggles. Therapy will be individualised to suit the needs of each person because we believe that there isn’t a “one size fits all” model of care. The Stress & Trauma Centre is here to stay, which means you can form an enduring relationship with your therapist so when you need help most, we are there for you.

Unfortunately, there is a relatively high probability (60-80%) that you will experience a potentially traumatic event in your life. Stress is an unavoidable fact of life. It may not be a natural disaster but rather a death, an accident, or chronic work related stress. It may have been trauma suffered during childhood, including physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.

Stress and trauma can lead to a variety of psychological, social, and occupational problems including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Insomnia
  • Alcoholism
  • Physical and emotional abuse
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Fortunately, there are well researched and evidence-based psychological treatments available and at the Stress & Trauma Centre we will ensure you are provided with a professional, confidential and effective form of treatment. If you or someone you love is struggling to cope with stress, anxiety, or other trauma related difficulties, please call and our kind and caring admin team will ensure a smooth and easy process for making an appointment.
