Trauma Coaching:Price for First Session: R550.00 Price per session thereafter: R450.00 Trauma recovery deals with reworking trauma so as to enable survivors to integrate the trauma intotheir lives. In order to achieve healing, they have to disabuse their notions that they aredysfunctional and different. Healing is said to begin when these persons start to reconnect withtheir strengths, identify defenses that previously kept them “locked into” the trauma and find waysto dismantling these defenses.Trauma coaching is largely a process whereby traumatized people are enabled to work through theirdistressing memories to the point where they feel better. While they will never be able to forgettheir most painful experiences, they may reach a point where they are able to have theserecollections without feeling overwhelmed or seriously disturbed. Unless survivors have anopportunity to address their feelings regarding their abuse, these feelings may have an impact ontheir relationships with friends, lovers and their children, their self-esteem, their relationships withtheir bodies and their career performance.The goal in recovery is to enable the survivor to achieve “ordinary levels of effective functioning”,which would be:•The ability to give energy to everyday life.•Experiencing psychological comfort, instead ofconstantly experiencing pain and distress.•The ability to experience gratification – to enjoylife’s pleasures when they happen.•Developing hopefulness regarding the future; beingable to make plans for the future, and displaying acommitment to these plans.•The ability to adequately perform social roles as aspouse, a parent and a member of the community.
