Trauma can come from anywhere. Trauma that is not dealt with appropriately can have devastating consequences. At the core of healing, is a good support system and healthy relationships. Solid relationships are a key component in one’s search for healing and growth. As human beings, we are not meant to grow in isolation, which is why building relationships with clients is fundamental to a counseling relationship. Having a safe space to be heard and regarded, without fear of judgment can be the beginning of the healing process.
