Everyone in South Africa has had either direct exposure or knows of someone who has been the victim of some or other form of trauma and loss, whether it is the death of a loved one or a high jacking.  Any experience that impacts on our feeling of self-worth and safety can leave a person feeling vulnerable and traumatized.  Therapy is aimed at restoring the balance that was disrupted by the experience and assisting the person to work through and come to terms with what they have been through so that it no longer holds them back in life.
