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 continues to offer virtual therapy sessions to new and existing clients. As the province of Ontario re-opens for business, We are slowly bringing back in person sessions on Mondays with precautionary measures. 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.
