Trauma and Pain can be defined in two ways: body wound or shock produced by sudden physical injury, as from violence or accident and in psychiatry, trauma is an experience that produces psychological injury or pain. Major trauma is injury that can potentially lead to serious outcomes. Trauma can also be experienced psychologically. Immediately after the traumatic event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea.

Trauma can also be repeated and enduring emotional distress over a long period of time such as childhood neglect. Teh Trauma Counsellor utilizes specialized techniques to identify and work through the emotions that have been internalized from the event.
