When We Band Aid Trauma

Mental health/illnesses are rising everyday and services are growing at a rapid pace, however when the demand is so high and supply becomes full, we become the band-aid society. What does that mean?

When issues are only dealt with on a surface level .

What happens if we continue to band-aid? We continue to see the same stigma, the same struggles over and over and over again with no resolution.

At Embracing Empowerment we truly believe “peeling the onion (layers) ” meaning, getting to the “root” of struggles is the only way to reduce stigma and help those who continue to struggle with their own mental health/illness.

Trauma changes people, period. To  understand that every struggle has a root, and in order to omit or diminish the pain we must understand the wounds within.

Embracing Empowerment Counselling Services  remains OPEN during COVID-19 crisis. We continue to offer virtual therapy sessions to new and existing clients. If you're struggling or know someone who is please reach out to us at info@embracingempowerment.com or 613-983-6737. You are not alone.
