Not sure where to start in your journey to healing? Dr. Katie Dashtban is an experienced psychologist and trauma specialist, having helped patients survive their traumatic experiences and rebuild their lives. At Feeling Good Wellness Center, we make sure you feel safe, secure, and comfortable through one-on-one virtual trauma therapy and counseling sessions.

Why Get Trauma Counselling in Toronto

Every trauma is different. You can’t just compare one over the other. And in the process of acknowledging our traumas, we need to get counselling. Trauma counselling is a multifaceted approach in dealing with trauma and moving forward. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for trauma counselling. However, one thing is sure—therapists will listen to you no matter what. Every session is tailored to your situation.

Trauma counselling comes with benefits including:

  • Learning about trauma
  • Identifying what triggers the trauma itself
  • Developing a healthy set of coping habits
  • Minimizing trauma symptoms
  • Feeling safe again

Before going into counselling, make sure to prepare yourself in any way possible. You need to trust your feelings and your therapist to get through every session.

Getting PTSD Treatments in Ontario

In your quest to get rid of the trauma, you may end up depressed and having low self-esteem. This is even more challenging because the triggers come when you least expect them. You feel that you have no control over your emotional and bodily reactions.

Some patients numb their emotions to take a break from them. They do these through self-medication, binge-watching random content on the internet and on TV, eating junk food, or withdrawing from society. If you’re doing this, you might have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

PTSD is curable. You don’t have to feel stuck and helpless in your current predicament. Dr. Dashtban’s extensive experience in treating patients with trauma can help you ease your way out of the dark.

Feeling Good Wellness Approach to Trauma Therapy

Using the TEAM-CBT approach, Dr. Katie Dashtban will guide you through your healing with these steps:

Initial intake

You and Dr. Dashtban determine measurable goals that you can follow through. Dr Dashtban goes through a comprehensive psychological evaluation and a special and tailor made treatment program for you.

6-week courses

You take a course of treatments that lasts for 6 weeks. Additional courses may be added as necessary.

Numerous trauma and PTSD therapists have adopted TEAM-CBT as it has shown rapid, profound, and lasting clinical change to patients who underwent this type of treatment. Where traditional cognitive behaviour therapy falls short, TEAM-CBT provides a much more personalized approach that allows you and Dr. Dashtban to work more fluidly—yet effectively—with your trauma.
